At present the site is predominantly occupied by a market hall, which has been owned and operated by Land Management for the last 90 years. Over recent years it has seen a decline in both shoppers and traders and the company has been looking for the right partner to work with them on a new development for the site.
Managing director of Dransfield Properties, Mark Dransfield, said: “This is our first major London development and we are delighted to be working with a great team of professionals on a scheme which will deliver real change in this part of east London.
“We have been working with Newham Council for three years to ensure a quality scheme is delivered which will set the standards for future development in the area. Our plans represent an opportunity to not only transform the site with some really striking architecture but to create new public spaces, amenities and of course much needed new homes.”
William Sunnucks Chairman of Land Management Ltd, said: “The existing market hall has served its customers well for many years, but it is sadly unsustainable in its present form. We are delighted to be working with excellent partners on a bright new future for the site which will have a hugely positive impact on this part of East Ham town centre.”

We are working to help redevelop the East Ham Market Hall. This was originally started after World War 1 as a family business to prove employment opportunities to war veterans. It’s still run by the same family today, but the development needed a makeover to be relevant to the current century
The development team is working on a high quality scheme which will deliver:
- An attractive central glazed atrium
- A new town centre foodstore
- A refurbished and upgraded East Ham Market Hall
- Around 110 new apartments – answering the need for new residential accommodation in the area
- A new town centre car park for around 160 cars
- Further retail, restaurant and café units
