Taylor Wimpey and L&Q appointed to first Olympic neighbourhood job

The London Legacy Development Corporation (LLDC) has appointed Taylor Wimpey and housing association L&Q to build the first of five new neighbourhoods on the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, it was announced today.

Chobham Manor, which will be on the site currently inhabited by the temporary Basketball Arena, will comprise terraced and mews houses along tree-lined avenues along with a health centre, nurseries and community spaces.

More than 75% of the 870 homes are planned to be family housing and the development will reuse infrastructure built for London 2012 Games such as the heating and telecoms networks, and fibre optic broadband.

Construction work on Chobham Manor is set to begin in October once the corporation takes operational control of the Park. It aims to have first homes ready by the end of 2014.
