Future of London is delighted to announce property developer Linkcity as a new partner and co-sponsor of our major programme for 2023 on social value.

Linkcity works across sectors including regeneration, mixed-use, student accommodation and residential projects.

The developer is currently involved in delivering several major projects for Future of London members in London, including:

  • Hallsville Quarter in Canning Town to deliver a new £600m town centre with the LB Newham
  • Tustin Estate redevelopment, including 220 new council homes with LB Southwark

Linkcity also recently announced that it will be working with LB Barnet on a build-to-rent scheme on the station car park site in Burnt Oak to create 350 private and affordable homes.

Linkcity joins Future of London at the start of Unlocking Social Value, a year-long programme of events and practice-based research. The programme will consider how the sector can better understand the needs of communities and look at the social value contribution of community-led initiatives.

Linkcity is part of the Bouygues Group, which operates in more than 80 countries.

Phillippa Prongué, Managing Director of Linkcity, said:

“We are excited to join Future of London because creating economically and socially sustainable communities is a mission we share.

“We are looking forward to connecting with members to develop solutions for inclusive, community-led regeneration and gain insights to help us reach our net zero targets.”

Nicola Mathers, Chief Executive of Future of London, said.

“The built environment sector is increasingly focused on ensuring that development creates real and lasting value to local communities.

“With their extensive experience of regeneration and housing development, we are certain that Linkcity will provide valuable insights to our programme.”
