This website will be kept temporarily active to provide a record of the successful partnership and work between BL Canada Quays, the London Borough of Southwark, and the local community of Rotherhithe.
The original British Land Canada Quays partnership at Canada Water has now dispersed following the successful delivery of the area formally known as Sites A and B. This has delivered 900 new homes including 234 affordable, a new civic heart with the creation of the Canada Water Library and Plaza, and the creation of new spaces and accessible routes.
The final phase of residential housing on Site A continues to be built by Barratt Homes scheduled for completion by 2014. Canada Quays Ltd is continuing in partnership with Southwark Council to deliver in the area. British Land as joint owners of Surrey Quays Shopping Centre is bringing forward plans to refurbish and extend the shopping centre.
As part of the Inspirational Speakers programme, Alfred Salter Primary School invited Simon Garrett, Projects Director at Barratt Homes and Patrick Clark from HardHat Communications to speak to a group of pupils about the Canada Water development and their roles within it. The idea of the event is to broaden the horizons of the pupils and give them access to professionals that they may not meet in day to day life. The Canada Water site is well known to the children in the school, and it was interesting for them to find out more about it and how the buildings have taken shape. This is part of an ongoing series of events and activities linking the site to local schools.
