Ballymore is one of the largest private property developers in Europe and a leader in urban regeneration. The company has been responsible for many of London’s major regeneration and legacy projects. Sean Mulryan, Founder, Chairman & Group CEO of Ballymore Group said “We are proud of our reputation for bringing new large-scale projects into London in a way that responds to the local area, to create stunning developments that will be cherished by those who use them. Built developments mean nothing if they don’t in some way improve, enrich or enhance people’s lives. We never forget that we’re building for people; if anything can be said to characterise a Ballymore development, it would be its human dimension.” Developments of note include Embassy Gardens, Pan Peninsula, 21 Wapping Lane, New Providence Wharf, High Point Village and Mastmaker Road.
Embassy Gardens comprises approximately 15 acres and will deliver up to 2,000 new homes plus office and flexible work space, new leisure facilities, 130,000 ft2 of retail, bar and restaurant space including a new Waitrose supermarket. Phase one comprises 3 buildings and approximately 600 units.
Ambassador and Capital Buildings within Phase 1 are set to be completed by 2016 and will be home to the leisure club and Waitrose.
Completion for the Legacy Buildings is estimated for 2019.

London City Island is unique new riverside development and 12 acre neighbourhood - creating a ‘mini-Manhattan’ - in Leamouth, London. Due for completion in 2016, it is adjacent to London’s most exciting creative and commercial districts. City Island will be a dramatic new cityscape, rising at the point where the Thames meets the River Lea and set against stunning views of Canary Wharf and the City of London’s iconic skyscrapers. It will see the creation of 1,700 new apartments, stunning al fresco spaces, waterside parks, vibrant new bars and restaurants, artist studios, boutique shops, school and exceptional private residents’ club.
--Spectacular private leisure club, with gymnasium, heated outdoor swimming pool and spa
--City Island private residents’ lounge
City Island is a unique and exciting undeveloped piece of riverside real estate in London.
--The delivery of the footbridge will make City Island one of the best connected development sites in London with a 2 minute walk to its very own Jubilee Line and DLR station at Canning Town. 20 minutes to Bond Street, 15 to Westminster. The easy access to the Jubilee means one stop to the world’s most successful music venue at the O2 and two stops to Europe’s largest retail centre, Westfield at Stratford and Queen Elizabeth Park.
--The recent acquisition by Chinese developer ABP (Advance Business Parks) of 35 acres of land adjacent to City Airport at Albert Docks is a major coup for London with the Mayor Boris Johnson stating the multi-billion investment will make this location London’s third financial centre. ABP in a JV with Stanhope is looking to bring the top Chinese companies to locate their European headquarters to this location.
--The collaboration with Eric Reynolds, who together with Ballymore at the early stages of Spitalfields Market helped create its reputation of bringing local creative and fashion house to the location . Spitalfields was voted one of London’s best visitor attractions. Eric will again work with Ballymore to deliver the arts and creative element within the Island to attract visitors and therefore retail end users.
--The architecture, landscape and interior design together with Ballymore’s excellent reputation for delivery of projects across London.
--Put all of the above together and the unique ability to buy a piece of real estate on an Island location makes this one of the most talked about launches of 2013.
