Major projects

Major projects include Woolwich Central, the largest ever development by Tesco's in-house development business Spenhill, comprising an 80,000 sq ft supermarket and 259 homes over 17 storeys.[7]

Its development division called Regen is also working with Poplar HARCA to redevelop the Aberfeldy estate over ten years to create 1,176 new homes, shops, healthcare and community facilities created over 12 years. The work replaces dilapidated 1950s-era housing to provide a better living environment for residents, complete with new shops and open, green spaces for recreation.[8] The company is also working with Circle to create Orchard Village, renewing a 1960s era estate into modern homes for hundreds of families.[9]

On 23 December 2014, Willmott Dixon was announced as the developer of Brentford FC's new Community Stadium at Lionel Road South in Brentford, London.[10] The development will include a 20,000 capacity stadium, 910 homes and community facilities, in addition to the redevelopment of the club's former Griffin Park ground into 70 homes.[10]
