The creation of London’s next business district at Royal Albert Dock is the first project to be undertaken outside of China by developer ABP. The company specialises in taking regeneration sites and turning them into thriving business districts.

ABP – which stands for Advanced Business Park – began its first project in Beijing in 2003 and completed it in 2010. It is a successful business district in the south of the city that is home to more than 500 companies in a 15 million sq ft development, which is about three times the size of the Royal Albert Dock project.

Since 2010 ABP has expanded its operations in China with new business district developments in Shenyang, Qingdao and Haining. In 2013, after a competitive tendering process, ABP was chosen by the Greater London Authority as the successful developer for Royal Albert Dock.
