Westferry Printworks is being managed by world-class industry experts.
Northern & Shell was founded in December 1974 as the publisher of the music magazine 'International Musician and Recording World'. The group experienced over four decades of expansion, becoming a significant force in British and worldwide media, with a portfolio of assets that included national newspapers, celebrity magazines and a major UK broadcaster.northernandshell.co.uk
More recently Northern & Shell has switched its primary focus to property - maintaining a number of interests in development sites and a leading online estate agency. In addition to its property interests Northern & Shell continues to support charities and local communities, most notably through The Health Lottery brand.
Northern & Shell was proud to be one of the first of a new generation of businesses occupying the Docklands area in the early 1980s. It continued to be a major employer in the area through its businesses located in The Northern & Shell Tower and its operation of the Westferry Printworks.
The group is now looking forward to the next phase of their long-term involvement with the Isle of Dogs through the redevelopment of the Westferry Printworks site, with the aim of creating a vibrant new waterfront neighbourhood just minutes from Canary Wharf.
