Taylor Wimpey to develop Olympic Park

Published:  07 August, 2012

LONDON: Taylor Wimpey and London & Quadrant have been picked to build 11 000 new houses in a project worth £300m.

Taylor Wimpey and L&Q will build 870 new houses on the 9.3 hectare Chobham Manor site. Work starts in October, with the first houses due for completion by 2014.

Last month the London Legacy Development Corporation won outline planning approval to build 6800 houses in five areas over the next 20 years. They will be staggered so as not to flood the market with new houses.
