Shortlist revealed of firms to take on Olympics Village

The shortlist of private sector organisations who will be invited to run the Olympic Village was announced yesterday.

The Olympic Delivery Authority said nine organisations and consortia would submit detailed proposals for the village next to the Olympic Park, and will deliver the legacy of 2,818 new homes for east London after the Games.

About 1,300 of the new homes have been bought by Triathlon Homes to become legacy affordable housing. The ODA owns the remaining 1,439 homes which will become private housing, together with six future development plots.
