About The Project

The Limmo Peninsula site, adjacent to Canning Town Station, is being redeveloped to provide a residential-led scheme, and your input can help inform what happens next.

Connected Living London, a new partnership between Transport for London (TfL) and Grainger Plc, will deliver thousands of homes across seven sites in London, with a high proportion of affordable housing, one of which is Limmo Peninsula.

Limmo Peninsula will deliver a mixed tenure development, including homes to rent and buy, both open market and affordable, as well as elements of commercial space.

We are currently at a very early stage of this project, developing the overarching principles for the site, before moving into more detailed designs.


Connected Living London – Joint Venture Partnership

TfL and Grainger plc have formed a major strategic joint partnership to deliver over 3,000 new homes across seven sites in London. Limmo Peninsula is one of these seven sites, delivering 35% affordable housing, in line with the London Borough of Newham’s policy for this site. TfL and Grainger plc are setting a new standard for rental homes, with excellent services, and creating places where residents feel secure and can call ‘home’.

Limmo Peninsula is located on the banks of the River Lea, south of Canning Town Station and north of The O2 across the River Thames. Three major roads surround the site including, the Lower Lea Crossing to the south, Silvertown Way to the east and Newham Way to the north.

Two new developments lie on the opposite side of the River Lea to Limmo Peninsula; City Island and Good Luck Hope (both by Ballymore). The east of the site is bordered by the railway tracks that serve the DLR & Jubilee Line, which sit between the site and the new neighbouring development at Brunel Street Works (Linden Homes).

Currently, the Limmo Peninsula site is a Crossrail works site and is inaccessible to the local community. The site has been identified as a Strategic Site for development in the London Borough of Newham’s Local Plan for high quality accessible open space, enabled by residential development.

Connected Living London, the joint partnership between TfL and Grainger, see a great opportunity to open up the site through the provision of new green spaces, links to the River Lea and existing transport hubs and provision of much needed new housing for Newham.

The site is being redeveloped as part of a Build to Rent scheme. Build to Rent homes are built with specific need of renters in mind, improving the overall quality of housing stock in the private rented sector, ensuring a commitment to and investment in the placemaking of sites, and providing professional services such as on-site management.
