Demolition of Westferry Printworks began today in London’s Docklands in order to start the construction of a new waterfront neighbourhood.
The demolition will be overseen by Printworks’ owner Northern & Shell and development manager Mace.
The Westferry Printworks development received planning consent in August 2016 and the 16 acre site will provide over 700 new homes which will be available to buy or rent.
The residents and locals will also benefit from new restaurants and bars, a community centre and healthcare amenities as part of the development.
Richard Desmond, founder of Northern & Shell, said: “I am 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.”
