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 their jobs week, year 6 pupils from Albion Primary School visited Maple Quays and spoke to Danny Masters, Barratt Homes Project Manager at Maple Quays and Setura Mahdi from HardHat Communications about their roles on site.
The visit began with an overview of the site around the model in the marketing suite. The children were then taken to the roof of Montreal House where they could see the ongoing construction work.
On their visit to Maple Quays Albion Primary School pupils were set the task of coming up with an alternative design of Ontario Tower. The runners up and winning entry are shown here.
