A £110 Million mixed-use Regeneration Scheme to go ahead in Greenwich

Leading property developers, Development Securities and the Cathedral Group, have confirmed today they have bought a 2.2-acre site in Greenwich town centre which will enable the development of a 350,000 sq. ft. mixed-use regeneration scheme, paving the way for new jobs in the building construction industry.

Following completed acquisition of the site for £16 million, both companies are now able to begin infrastructure work in order to prepare the land for the £110 million scheme which will include 25,000 sq. ft. mixed-use leisure and retail space.

From an earlier announcement it became clear that Development Securities has exchanged contracts for a £50 million residential element of the scheme with Willmott Dixon.

In addition, contracts for sale have been exchanged with McLaren at £8.3 million for the building of a 358-bed ‘student village’; the deal is expected to complete in August this year.

Chief Executive at Development Securities, Michael Marx, said: “This is a good example of the successful implementation of our strategy to create value by repositioning secondary or tertiary real estate into prime or near-prime development via the process of regeneration.”
