Project founders John and Sue Lincoln have launched a new company, Lincoln Project Repat, which is planning to build the largest project in the world.
Their new company is called Project Lincoln and will be based at the Lincoln Museum in London, England.
The project will take over the former site of the Lincoln Park Zoo, which has been under development since 2014.
It will include a 3,000-square-metre zoo, as well as a new playground, park and library, as part of a $10.3bn (£7.6bn) plan to expand Lincoln Park, near central London.
The new project is also the first time the project will be in operation without the involvement of any of the project’s original partners, who are currently involved in a number of projects around the world, including the World Cup in 2019.
Mr and Mrs Lincoln told BBC News that they had always intended to build a project that would be environmentally sustainable, and that they were excited to be able to bring Project Lincoln to life.
“I’m excited to bring it to life,” they said.
The project has been described as a “multi-year journey” and it will begin in 2019 and take “a year to complete”.
“We are excited to begin construction on this incredible project, and will do our best to make it a success,” the Lincoln Project said in a statement.
“Project Lincoln will be an ambitious and innovative project, which will change the face of the animal kingdom forever.”
The project also promises to be a “world-class public art project” that will feature artworks and installations by renowned artists including David Gandy and Damien Hirst, as the park is re-imagined into an animal park.
Lincoln Park was opened in 1855 and was home to more than 40,000 animals at the time, many of whom lived in a small enclosure, including dogs and cats.
It was the first zoo in the UK to be built under the patronage of the Queen, and its predecessor, the zoo at Woodstock, was shut down in 1962.
The first major construction project was the construction of a new zoo in 1865.
In 1866, the Lincoln Zoo and the surrounding area were built on a farm owned by the Earl of Lincoln, who died in 1887.
Lincoln’s nephew Charles, then the Earl’s heir, bought the land and was able to build an open-air zoo.
The original site of Lincoln Park is now home to the British Museum, National Gallery of Art, National Theatre, National Museum of the British Empire, and the National Gallery.
