Following a £3.7 billion regeneration, Canning Town is set to become a vibrant destination to eat, drink and shop and an exciting place to call home in East London. As the first and most significant phase of the transformation, Hallsville Quarter is delivering contemporary living, leisure and retail space and facilities that are vital in creating a thriving community and establishing a legacy for Canning Town.

Our Client, Grainger plc, is a market leader in the Build to Rent (BTR) sector and appointed TFT to act as the Investor’s Monitor on the new two-phase Hallsville Quarter BTR development.

Grainger plc have developed a high-quality specification, which ensures uniformity throughout their portfolio.
