The development will also include over 120,000 square feet of commercial space.  

Talking to, Guan Zhixiong, Chairman of R&F Group UK, said: “We believe One Thames City will set a new standard globally for mixed use projects”, adding: “We take great pride in the detail of what we build, and residents and their families are the focus for everything we do.”
