Europa Capital Acquires Former Ford Factory in Dagenham, East London

Europa Capital and St Congar Land have purchased the site of the former Ford Stamping Works in Dagenham for its pan-European investment fund, Europa Fund IV. The 42 acre brownfield site will be promoted for a residential-led mixed use project targeting 2,650 dwellings.

Hugo Black, Director of Europa Capital Partners, said:

“The shortage of housing stock in London can only be realistically addressed by developing eastwards.  With a railway station adjacent to the site providing a journey time to the City of less than 20 minutes, the site represents an exciting opportunity in one of best value for money areas of London.”
