rathbone market is changing
The 680,000 sq ft Rathbone Market scheme developed by English Cities Fund (ECf)— a joint venture between Muse Developments, Legal and General Property and the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA) — is part of the Canning Town & Custom House regeneration programme creating a new commercial district, new housing and a refreshed High Street within the Thames Gateway.

Work on Phase One — Vermilion — was completed in September 2012 and comprises: 271 new homes and 20,000 sq ft of new shops and cafes wrapped around the ground floor.

Phase Two — Aurelia — comprises two new public squares as well as new, purpose-built facilities for the market traders. A further 165 new homes are being delivered, along with a brand new 10,000 sq ft public library and community centre and 12,000 sq ft of ground floor retail space and work is now underway.

When all phases are complete, the development will include a new market square; shops, offices and community facilities; and 652 new homes.

Throughout this redevelopment, the market has continued to trade for the benefit of shoppers and traders.
