Long Harbour & JV Partners invested £260m in Walthamstow.


The large scale residential project will be a major component of the redevelopment of Walthamstow Town Centre, reflecting both the distinct London identity and local needs. Long Harbour recently acquired the site from Capital & Regional in December 2020 and has appointed Tide Construction to build it. The development will consists of 495nr BTR (Build to Rent) apartments split between two towers of 34 and 27 storeys. Both towers will be built with modular units produced by Vision Modular.

Using modular construction rather than traditional methods has saved circa 16 months on the construction programme. According to independent academic research, the carbon emissions emitted during the construction process could be reduced by up to 45% with this cutting-edge technology. The project is also in line with the partnership’s ESG credentials, which include the use of low-carbon building materials and the measurement of carbon footprints during the construction phase. Work on site will commence imminently and is expected to be completed by the end of 2025.

We are delighted to be acting as Cost Consultants and Employer’s Agents and can’t wait to see the final result.


McAleer & Rushe have been appointed as Main Contractor to a £140m Taxi House development at Westminster.


The landmark co-living development on the banks of the Grand Union Canal will transform the site of the former London Taxi Drivers’ Association HQ. Key to the development is the 346 units, vast internal amenity and external space, a pavilion and high-quality co-working space. McAleer and Rushe have been appointed as the main contractor on behalf of Cheyne Capital. They will be building the new development around the existing depot until they can be re-housed in their new facility.

Once completed, it will include a private pool, dining, massage rooms and a bespoke cinema. The building will range in size and height from 3 to 12 stories, and it will have 23,700 sqft of green, biodiverse roofs, targeting a BREEAM Excellent rating. There will also be 11,840 sqft of workspace specifically dedicated to SMEs. Undoubtedly, it will have a lasting impact on the community.

It is great for us to be involved in such an amazing project as Cost Consultants and Employer’s Agents.
