Mayor lines up Albert Island as latest development opportunity in the Royal Docks
The Mayor of London is planning to redevelop Albert Island, a slab of land owned by the Greater London Authority in London’s Royal Docks, where there is the potential to create hundreds of new jobs and build vital new marine facilities.
Developers are being asked to respond to the Mayor’s vision of a development that would include industrial space plus a working boatyard and marina facility, with the potential for a small amount of housing.
Any successful development would be expected to improve transport links to the Gallions Reach and King George V DLR stations, provide better cycling and walking routes, and make improvements to the river frontage with an aim of integrating the site into its surrounding communities.
The Deputy Mayor of London for Housing and Land, Richard Blakeway, said:
“The continued regeneration of the Royal Docks is one of the Mayor’s strategic priorities. The development of Albert Island with a new boatyard and marina would provide key maintenance and accommodation facilities for marine traffic, and new employment space that would help bring more skilled jobs to the area. It’s a unique opportunity for interested developers and follows recent significant progress to regenerate major sites in the area.”
