The builder hopes to cash in on the buoyant London housing market, which has bucked the countrywide trend of falling house prices last year
Ingrid Skinner, Taylor Wimpey Central London’s managing director, said: “As a business we are looking to extend our reach within those boroughs that offer a combination of established desirability and potential for growth, as well as getting involved in the redevelopment place-making of some of the Capital’s most up and coming districts.
“We have a diverse pipeline of fantastic projects that will enable us to extend the group’s operational aims and to bring more homes to the market than ever before in key areas of Central London in 2012 and beyond.”
Projects in planning or construction are being planned in West Hampstead, Tufnell Park, Islington, Newham and Lewisham.
Further developments are planned for Greenwich, Kensington and Camden.
Skinner added: “We expect to bring a number of high quality schemes to market during 2012, with the initial phases delivering in excess of 400 new homes.
“We will continue to add to our land portfolio over the coming years where we see attractive opportunities.”
