Developers will bring 911 homes to a riverside site with builds ranging from six to 15 storeys as part of a £330million regeneration.
On Monday, July 3, home builder Countryside announced its plan to deliver the houses at the Fresh Wharf site in Barking town centre, with complementary cafes and restaurants also planned.
Graham Cherry, chief executive of Countryside Partnerships South, said the “much-needed” homes would make a “significant contribution” toward the council’s target of 6,000 new homes.
“We are looking forward to revitalising this area,” he said.
Countryside will work with Notting Hill Housing to deliver the development, which will feature three-bedroom townhouses alongside apartments and an open park at its centre.
Notting Hill Housing’s group development director John Hughes said the site, which will offer 44 per cent of its properties allocated parking, was a “significant new development” in a “vibrant area”.
