L&Q signs up builder for 700-home development

London and Quadrant and Sainsbury’s have struck a deal with house builder Barratt to begin development on a 700-home scheme in London.

The organisations have proposed to build a 1 million square foot scheme with a supermarket and flats in three towers.

The homes will be a mix of private and affordable.

Last year Barratt and L&Q bought an 8.5-acre site from Sainsbury’s for a £420 million residential scheme in Fulham Wharf.

Barratt is presently tendering work on the 463 flats and supermarket project after demolition started at the site last summer.
