Development manager Mace commenced demolition of Westferry Printworks in London’s Docklands today 13th February 2017.

Richard Desmond, founder and owner of Northern & Shell, together with his wife Joy and son Valentine, were on site for the proceedings.

The Westferry Printworks development received planning consent in August 2016. The 16-acre site will provide over seven hundred new private and affordable homes which will be available to buy or rent.

Residents and locals will benefit from beautiful open spaces and waterside walks, two new parks and a new south facing dockside waterfront promenade. They will be able to enjoy an exciting mix of independent, restaurants, bars and shops, great sporting facilities, a new community centre and crèche, healthcare amenities, a cultural ‘hub’ and a new 1,200 space secondary school.

The development is ust a short walk from the Canary Wharf business district.

Richard Desmond, said: “My company, Northern & Shell, was the first owner, developer and occupier in 1982 in London Docklands and we moved our publishing business and headquarters there. This helped our small business then to expand and we have been proud to be associated with the regeneration of London Docklands for 35 years.

This connection was reinforced with our acquisition of the Express Newspapers group in 2000 together with its ground breaking printing operation – Westferry Printworks which provided hundreds of jobs for the people of Docklands and the surrounding area. I am therefore delighted to be implementing our vision for the next generation of Docklands residents with our new neighbourhood here in the centre of London’s Docklands, just minutes from Canary Wharf.”
