The V&A Waterfront was originally granted development rights of some 600 000m2 of bulk, of which approximately 180 000m2 is still available for development of new retail, office, hotel, ​​residential, industrial and related projects.

The V&A Waterfront’s own Development Department is responsible for the expansion of the existing portfolio. The scope and diversity of development expertise is showcased across a variety of residential, retail, commercial and leisure developments. All buildings are retained within the V&A Waterfront’s own portfolio and, as such, the V&A will also remain as landlord post completion.

Sustainable development is fundamental to the V&A Waterfront’s development strategy. A rigorous approach has been adopted with regards to green construction and sustainable design principles, and the efficient use of natural and energy resources.
