DPL works with Barratt London to deliver East Ham development
Dransfield Properties is working on the company's first major London mixed use scheme.
Barratt London and East Ham Regeneration Ltd has been granted planning permission by the London Borough of Newham for the redevelopment of the East Ham Market Hall. Work is expected to start on site in December 2018.
Located in the centre of East Ham, a seven-minute walk from East Ham underground station, the 1.9-acre scheme will provide 277 new studio, one, two and three-bedroom homes, including 78 affordable homes, and 21,500 sq ft of new and refurbished retail space.
Designed by RMA Architects, the mixed-use residential and retail development will also create new public spaces, as well as landscaped courtyards and private roof gardens for residents.
East Ham Market Hall is one of two developments which Barratt London has acquired in the Borough of Newham in the last two years. Upton Gardens, on the site of the former Boleyn Ground at Upton Park, launched in February last year and will deliver 842 homes for the borough.
This is the first major project for Dransfield Properties in the capital, working with the East Ham Market Hall owners Land Management as well as Barratt London.
Matt Calladine, Regional Land and Development Director, Barratt London, commented: “We are delighted that London Borough of Newham has granted planning permission for the redevelopment of East Ham Market Hall. The Borough has gone through significant regeneration following the London Olympics in 2012. We are proud to be contributing to this through both our Upton Gardens development, and the development of this new site, which will provide not only much-needed new homes but also a brand new retail offering for the area.
“We know how important it is to build more homes for London as quickly as possible and are looking forward to starting work on site towards the end of this year”.
East Ham Regeneration Ltd is a joint venture between the Market Hall owners Land Management and the award winning Yorkshire based property firm Dransfield Properties.
Mark Dransfield said: “This is our first major development in London and we are extremely excited to be working with Land Management and Barratt Homes on a project which will deliver real change to this part of East Ham.
“This development will not only answer the need for affordable new homes in this part of the borough but it is going to transform this site in the heart of East Ham, bringing a new retail and restaurant offer to the area.”
Barratt London and East Ham Regeneration Ltd have worked together with Newham Council, the GLA and local residents throughout the design process, shaping a scheme that will deliver a mixed and balanced community. The scheme’s anticipated completion date is June 2021.
