Ardmore Developments has won an £80 million contract to carry out the opening phase of a new housing project in south-east London.
The firm will be providing 1,030 new homes for Project Light at Canada Water in Southwark, with the seven acre site also including a new district centre with commercial and community space.
Located by Canada Water Tube Station, the development will include 453 homes for private sale, 346 for private rent, 162 for affordable rent and 69 for shared ownership, with the project being carried out on behalf of Notting Hill Housing Association.
There will be 150,000 sq ft of commercial space, including a 100,000 sq ft Decathlon store.
Ardmore development director Chris Langdon said: “We are thrilled to have been selected for the first phase of Project Light, which promises to be a landmark development for Canada Water.”
Canada Water Underground Station was built as part of the extension of the Jubilee line in the late 1990s and was originally an interchange with the East London line, now part of the London Overground network.
