“They understand their territory and see potential others do not. To us, they epitomise the type of precise, experienced developer with whom we like to work, and, like us, continue to see favourable opportunities in both prime and peripheral London.”

Previous collaborations between the pair included residential schemes at Alpha House, Dalston, and Hogarth Views, Chiswick.

Michael Magee, director of Prime City Developments, said: “Fortwell once again showed us their commitment to the residential market in London and, again, we put them under significant pressure to complete the transaction in very tight timescales.

“Prime City and Earlplace, our JV partners on this project, believe areas like East Dulwich offer buyers great benefits, namely the demand for value for money and education. Prime City continue to look for opportunities in these areas to build on our success in the past for delivering high-quality affordable homes in the Capital.”
