The Port of London Authority has bought a 3.7 acre site in Silvertown which has been earmarked for industrial use.
Royal Primrose Wharf is situated next to Peruvian Wharf, an eight acre site also owned by the PLA where a construction materials facility is being developed. Both are a short distance from West Silvertown DLR station.
The PLA is currently seeking proposals from businesses interested in operating at Royal Primrose Wharf, which it bought from property development company Ballymore.
