1,000homes now completed at London's Royal Wharf

Royal Wharf, a new neighbourhood in London, now has 1,000 completed developments after welcomingits first residents earlier this year.

A further 200 units are due to complete early in the new year and all 3,385 new homes on the development are now under construction or complete.

Royal Wharf covers 40 acres of riverside land and includes a 2.4 acre park and 500m riverfront promenade, half of which is now open to the public.

There are suites, one, two and three bedroom apartments as well as three and four bedroom townhouses.

The homes have views over the river Thames, the O2 and Canary Wharf and have been inspired by the traditional Georgian architecture of Belgravia and Fitzrovia.

Oxley, a developer in Singapore, and Ballymore, a residential developer in London, collaborated on the project.

Royal Wharf will have a network of interconnecting streets leading onto town squares and gardens, including Sovereign Place and Marylebone style high street.

Sovereign Place and the high street will provide over 60 independent cafes, shops, restaurants and bars for residents and locals alike.

Located on the riverfront, Royal Wharf residents will be able to step out of their apartments onto the new riverfront promenade.

This leads to the two riverside parks which border the development, Barrier Park and Lyle Park.

Scattered around the development are many secluded pocket parks, garden squares and tree lined avenues.

There are transport links with Pontoon Dock or West Silvertown on the DLR, and Canning Town on the Jubilee Line, while in 2018 there will be a Crossrail station atCustom House.

Emirates Air Line, London’s only cross-river cable car, is a short walk away.
