Mace has been appointed by Singapore-based developer Oxley Holdings Limited, and UK-based Ballymore, to deliver phase 1 of the Royal Wharf development. On this initial phase, Mace will be acting as construction manager on what will become the biggest new Docklands neighbourhood since Canary Wharf was built 20 years ago.
The Royal Wharf project will bring a mixture of over 3,000 apartments and town houses, retail space, cafes, a school, restaurants and a state of the art gymnasium as part of the overall regeneration of East London.
Mace’s Chief Operating Officer for Construction, Gareth Lewis, said: “As London continues to grow, major residential projects such as Royal Wharf are key to ensuring this city maintains its status as a major international hub, providing the essential space and infrastructure to support its growth. We are delighted to have been given the opportunity to work on such an exciting project, which will not only meet this demand but will provide a vital economic boost to East London.”
Oxley Chief executive, Ching Chiat Kwong, said: ”We are looking forward to seeing Royal Wharf transform and rejuvenate the Royal Docks area, and help to make this location one of the most exciting places to live and work.”
Mace’s Residential Business Unit Director, Simon Underwood, said: “Mace, in its role as construction manager, has taken on some of the largest residential appointments in London over the last few years and it is great to be given yet another opportunity to further shape this city. We look forward to working alongside the site’s developer, Oxley.”
