The Silvertown Quays site will be a mixed-use development on the scale of Canary Wharf with a far stronger housing element.
In total the development site will accommodate 500,000 sq m of building space. More than 4,000 homes are earmarked for the site, as well as a large aquarium and hotel.
LDA Director of Development Stephen Kennard said: “With the eyes of the world on London in the run up to the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, the market looks positive for our Silvertown Quays and Royal Albert Dock sites.”
The long-listed firms will now be invited to take part in a competitive dialogue process consisting of two stages.
At the end of the first stage it is anticipated that the number of bidders will be reduced to four in December.
They will then be invited to submit a final tender response and detailed financial proposals to allow a winner to be named next year.
