Work is complete on the East End Thames View development in Barking and Dagenham.
The scheme is the result of a partnership – TPFL Regeneration – between Barking and Dagenham Council and Explore Investments, the investment arm of Laing O’Rourke.
The development includes 276 homes for affordable rent, comprising 152 houses, 35 duplex flats and 90 flats.
It was designed by architect Pollard Thomas Edwards and built by contractor Jerram Falkus Construction, with Barking and Dagenham providing the land.
Institutional asset developer Long Harbour funded the work and Barking and Dagenham Reside, the council-owned company rents and manages the homes.
A spokesman for Jerram Falkus said: “We are delighted with our partnership with the local community at Thames View.
"We are also proud to announce the significant investment that resulted in this project and the supply-chain opportunities we have generated through socially responsible procurement and apprenticeships to local SME construction suppliers and the local young people of Barking and Dagenham and the surrounding areas.”
Thirteen new council homes at Sugden Way in Barking were delivered and lifted into place in the space of just seven days.
