Demolition Works Begin in Capital Docklands


Work has gone under way in the area of the London docklands to clear away the former site of the Westferry Printworks base. Only once this is done will building and construction developments take place to construct a brand new walkway and waterfront area in the vicinity of business sector Canary Wharf along the bank side of the River Thames. An area of 16 acres of land, the former printing work base will be cleared up over the course of the next few months so that more than 700 new homes will be able to built in the area. This will enable a brand new community to develop in the pleasurable sector and region of this part of the city where a new infrastructure and community will be set in order to ensure the future of the economy in the area.

This is an excellent attempt to create a new number of homes for the London area and something which the land developing world in London and the rest of the United Kingdom can follow as an example of investment and growth by companies into creating more homes and prosperity. Richard Desmond the head of Northern & Shell enterprise that had previously owned the Westferry Printworks is very pleased that the land is going to put to good use and that the Docklands of London will be able to thrive once again. Indeed, such an enterprise will also allow for the implementation of a school for children in secondary education that will have 1,200 places. This indicates the amounts of growth and investments that Richard Desmond and Northern & Shell are implementing by enforcing the clearing away of the Printworks and the hope is that the area will become a new and vital community right on the doorstep of the Canary Wharf sector of the city.
