Willmott Dixon will build 206 homes on the Greenwich Peninsula mixed-tenure housing scheme that will be available for private sale and shared ownership.
The development is a joint venture between Taylor Wimpey Central London and Countryside Properties, who are aiming to develop up to 1,800 homes on the site over the next 15 years.
Willmott Dixon is expected to complete this phase in spring 2015.
Charlie Scherer, chief operating officer for Willmott Dixon’s housing company, said: “Our expertise in building homes for all types of tenures will ensure the successful delivery of this key phase in the on-going transformation of the Greenwich Peninsula. Greenwich Millennium Village will soon be home to thousands of people, creating a vibrant community in a great location.”
Elsewhere in London recently, Willmott Dixon has started work on the last stage of the Church End estate regeneration in Neasden, the 10-year Aberfeldy Village regeneration in Tower Hamlets and the Brentford Lock West regeneration next to Grand Union Canal. Together with Greenwich Millennium Village and a new care home village in Ascot, Willmott Dixon has booked new housing orders worth £160 million since the start of 2013.
