There's an article with some details at www.propertyweek.com though you have to be a subscriber to view.
The key points:
- The new joint venture is planning 500,000 sq ft on the shopping centre site. This is an increase from 327,000 sq ft at present
- They are planning for 1,000 or more new homes. Rather than private flats for sale, they will retain ownership and rent them out privately.
- This will all be managed jointly with the Tribeca Square site which they also own and will be known as 'South Village' - essentially the same model they are using for the 'East Village' aka the Olympic Village - see http://www.getlivinglondon.com/
Obviously the big issue will be whether that amount of development is approved, and how much affordable housing is negotiated.
