Barking & Dagenham Council has approved EcoWorld’s plans for 514 build-to-rent apartments in phase two of Barking Wharf in east London. The development will comprise five towers of between nine and 23 storeys on the site of the Tesco car park on Highbridge Road. The proposals include 51 discount market rent homes, equating to 10% affordable housing. Phase two brings the total homes at Barking Wharf to 1,111. The first homes have been acquired by  Invesco as part of a £400m deal split over Barking and Kew Bridge. Finance for the second phase has yet to be secured.
