McBains Cooper will provide architecture, project management and cost management services for the apartments, which will be built on the site of the former Trocoll House office building in Barking.
The site was acquired by Patrizia UK from Coplan Estates for the development of a 150,000 sq ft scheme comprising 92 one-bed and 106 two-bed apartments to the east of London. Construction is due to start at the end of the year. Architect is Collado Collins.
Mark Leeson, director of design at McBains Cooper, said: “We are delighted to have been chosen to deliver this project, based on our expertise in build-to-rent and technical capability. The project is Patrizia’s first build-to-rent investment in London, and will be the most significant development in Barking to date.”
McBains Cooper has already overseen the development of the £115m Delancey and Oakmayne Properties Elephant Road BTR development in the Elephant & Castle regeneration zone in London, which will complete this autumn.
