The homes are being built by Chobham Manor LLP – a joint venture between leading housebuilder Taylor Wimpey and one of London’s largest residential developers, L&Q – which was selected for the project by the London Legacy Development Corporation.
Taylor Wimpey was formed when two of the UK’s longest established and best respected homebuilding companies merged in 2007.
Today, the developer builds around 10,000 homes every year across the UK, from apartments and starter homes to family‑sized detached properties. The company is a UK-focused residential developer which also has operations in Spain.
Set up in 1963, L&Q’s core business is to provide high‑quality affordable housing, and owns and manages more than 100,000 homes across London and the South East – making it the largest landlord in the capital and one of the largest residential property developers.
The London Legacy Development Corporation formed in April 2012 with the purpose to use the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity of the London 2012 Games and the creation of Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park to develop a dynamic new heart for east London, creating opportunities for local people and driving innovation and growth in London and the UK.
