Silvertown Quays is a major regeneration project to reawaken an iconic East London neighbourhood.

In partnership with the local community and public sector, global real estate group Lendlease and private investment firm Starwood Capital will bring the 50-acre dockside site back to life.

As well as featuring 6,500 new homes, Silvertown is expected to become a new cultural hub for the Royal Docks with brand-new arts and leisure facilities, cafés, restaurants and bars.

As part of this project, the derelict Millennium Mills building – pictured above – will be fully restored to become the centrepiece of the new community.

At mua, we’re proud to be part of this landmark project, appointed as the independent distribution network operator (IDNO) for the adoption of the electricity network on the development.
