We own a 5,700 acre estate that includes land and properties with huge potential for creating the homes and jobs that the Capital needs. Our landholdings can play a vital role in meeting the Mayor's priorities to build affordable homes, while generating revenue to invest in improving our transport network.

We have the team, sites and programme in place to provide a long-term development pipeline, delivering 10,000 homes across 300 acres. In 2016/17 we brought sites to market which will deliver almost 1,000 homes, half of which will be affordable.

We are using a number of routes to release our sites, including our property partnerships framework of 13 leading developers, direct-development and site-specific partnerships. We also have plans to release our smaller sites.

Our ambitious programme offers an exciting opportunity to build homes and communities around the transport hubs where people want to live and work. To make the most of this we want to work with local authorities, land owners and the best of the development industry.

Our joint venture sites 

We have signed development agreements and formed partnerships to build new homes and commercial space at these sites.

Earls Court redevelopment

Earls Court - Hammersmith and Fulham, and Kensington and Chelsea

Earls Court is one of the Capital's most important development opportunities and was our first joint venture. In 2015 we partnered with Capco to establish Earls Court Partnership Limited. Together we'll deliver 1,800 homes on 26.6 acres as part of a wider 77 acre plan. Find out more about the transformation of Earls Court.


Kidbrooke - Greenwich

Our four-acre site next to Kidbrooke rail station was the first site to be made available to our property partnerships framework. The site has the potential to deliver 400 homes, 50% of which will be affordable. As well as providing hundreds of genuinely affordable homes, the site will also provide new retail and commercial spaces, a hotel, improved urban realm and an integrated bus station. In March 2017 we announced Triangle London Developments (TLD) as our preferred bidder for the site. Find out about our plans for Kidbrooke.

High Street Kensington

South Kensington station - Kensington & Chelsea

South Kensington station is a listed building that acts as the gateway to many of London's most renowned museums, the Royal Albert Hall and Imperial College. We have been working with the local community to draw up plans for new shops, homes and office space around the station. In spring 2018 we announced Native Land as our preferred development partner for this site. Find out about our plans for South Kensington.

Northwood station

Northwood station - Hillingdon

Located in zone 6, our 4.7 acre site at Northwood can provide over a hundred new homes, 35% of which will be affordable. Redeveloping this underused site will also provide step-free access at the station, new shops and public space. In spring 2018 we appointed Triangle London Developments, a consortium between Notting Hill Housing and U+I as our preferred development partner for this site.

blackhorse road

Blackhorse Road - Waltham Forest

Covering 1.5 acres opposite Blackhorse Road Tube station on the Victoria line, we want to transform this car park into 350 homes. Located within a GLA Housing Zone and Waltham Forest Council's Blackhorse Lane Growth Area, it is suitable for new homes, shops, restaurants and cafes, and new public realm. We have now appointed Barratt Homes as our preferred development partner and we intend to submit a planning application with 50% affordable housing. Find out more about the Blackhorse Road proposals.

Landmark Court commercial development

Landmark Court - Southwark

This 1.9 acre site sits at the heart of London Bridge, with significant potential and flexibility to support a number of uses including up to 180,000 square feet of high quality office space, retail, leisure and 100 new homes.We have now appointed U+I as our preferred development partner for the site and we plan to submit a planning application later this year. See the plans for Landmark Court.


Fenwick South - Lambeth

We have secured planning consent for a 100% affordable housing scheme on this 1 acre site. We have signed a development agreement with London Borough of Lambeth and will deliver 46 new units made up of high-quality, dual-aspect one, two and three bedroom homes.

Sites currently out to market

We have launched these sites to market. We are currently evaluating our prospective development partners submissions or they are in the process of preparing their bids.

Harrow car parks

Harrow car parks

We have plans to bring three car parks in the London borough of Harrow to market through the GLA's new London Development Panel 2. The three car parks located at Canons Park, Rayners Lane and Stanmore Tube stations will provide a minimum of 400 homes, all of which will be affordable. Using this panel will help us develop the sites sooner and with a partner that has a proven track record of delivering homes on public land. When a partner has been appointed, we will start detailed design work and consult the local community before submitting a planning application in 2019/20.

Coming up

We have an extensive pipeline of sites and are identifying how and when we will bring each one forward. These are the sites we have announced to date.

Wood Lane Arches

Wood Lane Arches - Hammersmith and Fulham

We'll deliver new commercial units by transforming 31 disused railway arches underneath Wood Lane Tube station. The arches will be converted into 20 retail units, workspaces, amenity and cycle parking. Public access arches will support the regeneration of the White City Opportunity Area by creating direct routes between White City Living (developed by St James) and Westfield London. The first units will be available in spring 2018. Find out more about our plans for Wood Lane Arches.

Bank CD image

Bank - City of London

We have started works to modernise Bank station, connecting it to Monument station and providing step-free access. Once works are complete, we will develop a new retail and office building above the new station entrance. We expect to start work on the 0.66 acre site once the station is complete in 2021. We have planning permission for a nine storey scheme, including 12,000 square metres of office and 650 square metres of retail space.

Harrow on the Hill

Harrow on the Hill - Harrow

Harrow-on-the-Hill station and neighbouring bus station need significant improvement, specifically, step-free access and increased bus capacity. The 2.5 acre site above and around the station could deliver a 600 home scheme, which would improve transport and access in the town centre.

Nine Elms commercial and development

Nine Elms - Lambeth

This is a 1.85 acre site above and around the proposed Nine Elms Northern line station.  We have planning permission for 332 homes, and retail and commercial space. We will start on site when the station is finished in 2020.

North Greenwich

North Greenwich - Greenwich

We are working with our partners Knight Dragon and the GLA to bring forward the development of Peninsula Place. Knight Dragon have unveiled a new £1 billion landmark scheme designed by Santiago Calatrava totalling 1.4 billion square feet which includes a new Tube and bus station.

Our property partnerships framework

In February 2016 we appointed 13 major property development companies and consortia to a development framework which will help to deliver the thousands of homes, offices and retail spaces vital to keep London growing.

The 13 organisations were selected following a competitive procurement process with over 50 companies registering their interest in becoming one of our property partners.

Our framework allows us to work in joint ventures with some of the best developers in the market, on land in London's most iconic locations. It works more efficiently than procuring a joint venture development partner on a site by site basis. The wider GLA family will also be able to use the framework to bring forward developments on their sites.

The property partnership programme is part of our plans to raise £850m in income from property development and disposals by 2021/22 for reinvestment in London's transport network. The partnership is the first phase of our wider property development programme.

The 13 companies and consortiums selected are:

  • Balfour Beatty PLC
  • Barratt Development PLC / London and Quadrant Housing Association (Consortium)
  • Berkeley Group PLC
  • The British Land Company PLC
  • Canary Wharf Group PLC
  • Capital and Counties PLC
  • U+I / Notting Hill Housing Group (Consortium: Triangle London Developments)
  • Land Securities Group PLC
  • Mace Limited / Peabody Trust / DV4 Limited (Consortium)
  • Mount Anvil Group Limited / Hyde Housing Association Limited
  • Redrow Homes Ltd
  • Stanhope PLC / Mitsui Fudosan Company Limited
  • Taylor Wimpey UK Ltd
