Work has finally begun on constructing homes on Silvertown Quays after decades of inactivity.
Piling rigs have moved on site after around a year of land clearance at the development which includes Millennium Mills.
Plans have been and gone for many years. A ill-fated music festival was planned but cancelled in the 2010s.
The glacial pace at which homes are often built can be seen in the fact that the London Regeneration Agency first started work planning this site in 2002.
In 2022 a funding deal was agreed to fund infrastructure including a new bridge alongside £80 million for the first 1,500-homes.
Millennium Mills will be renovated and the listed grain silo will remain.
3,500-homes were recently built opposite at Royal Wharf and 800 more will soon be complete at Deanston Wharf.
This will all ensure the Woolwich Arsenal DLR branch will see heathy ridership numbers for some years to come.
