ABP is creating London’s third financial and business district. The Royal Albert Dock project will be unique – it will be the headquarters of Chinese and other Asian companies enabling them to reach new markets across Europe. It will also be the centre for European companies looking to trade with them.
The £1.7 billion investment to create the Asian Business District at Royal Albert Dock in London will result more than 30,000 jobs, and generate £6 billion to the London economy. It will be a platform for those companies to thrive and prosper and will be the economic engine that will power the economic growth of the Royal Docks.
ABP London Royal Albert Dock is in an unrivalled position next to the London City Airport, which offers excellent international and national transport connections to more than 40 destinations throughout the UK, to Europe and with business flights to New York. All parts of London can be easily reached through the three Docklands Light Railway (DLR) stations which connect to the site with Big Ben about 20 minutes away, while Crossrail, a fast new railway service will open close by in 2018 making Heathrow Airport just an hour away.
Royal Albert Dock is also close to other business destinations, including the O2 Arena, ExCeL London Exhibition Centre, Canary Wharf and the Olympic Park.
