It has just been confirmed that Mace will take its place as main contractor for the 2nd phase of East Village, a development sitting by East London’s Olympic Park – a very enviable location positioned in the old Athletes’ Village area used for London 2012.

Already playing host to some 6,000 residents across 2,818 residential properties, the project looks to expand upon the residential capacity of the area in line with the original 2005 Stratford City Masterplan. Due for completion over the course of 2018, the project itself includes a 30 storey and 26 storey tower, with Qatari Diar and Delancey positioned as joint developers in the structure of the project. Upon completion, the residential assets are to be managed by Get Living London to ensure that the assets available are utilised to their maximum potential.

Nodding to the appointment of Mace to the phase, a spokesperson commented for Qatari Diar Delancey, highlighting the hard, quality work displayed by Mace over the course of London 2012’s Paralympic and Olympic games as well as the LLDC’s transformation at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. “We are looking forward to seeing how the team brings this expertise and local knowledge to these new homes in East Village,” commented the spokesperson.

Building from a strong foundation of residential success already present in the area, the project, and Mace’s work most specifically, is expected to build further upon the “residential legacy” already achieved in the local area by Qatari Diar Delancey and, as such, Mace maintains a positive outlook on the opportunity to deliver on the project. Having already been working in the area from London 2012 at its very inception, the project also highlights Mace’s invested interest in the area, with Mace’s Chief Executive, Mark Reynolds commenting that the project, “Forms an important party of a legacy that is very close to our hearts.”
