London: One Of The Greatest Cities On Earth
Royal Wharf Grasps One Of The Last Opportunities To Build A New Town Within London
This vast metropolis on the Thames – Europe’s biggest city – offers a truly unique combination of prosperity, heritage and booming popularity.
London is the world’s premier financial centre. It is the number one city in terms of visitor numbers. And underpinned by stable government, effective regulation and economic balance, it offers one of the planet’s most investible property markets.
The 2012 Olympic Games broadcast to the world a city with a great knack for balancing the trappings of the modern world with the legacy of a long and celebrated history. The London they took place in was – and is – both a world-leading international business centre, and the most important cultural meeting place on Earth.
In being situated in the once-industrial East End, the games underlined the secret of London’s persistent success: its remarkable capacity for reinvention.
Canary Wharf On The Reclaimed London Docks Is The Biggest Employer Of Bankers In Europe As Well As East London’s De Facto City Centre
East London Is Europe’s Most Important Hub For Both The Creative Industries And Technology
Although very much connected to the rest in both geography and spirit, the east now exerts its own magnetism, drawing shoppers and cultural tourists throughout the week.
North of Canary Wharf, swathes of former warehouses and artisan buildings in areas like Shoreditch and Spitalfields have been re-energised to the point where east London hosts many of Europe’s key creative and technology districts with a vibrant food, nightlife and cultural scene to match. The government’s key ‘East London Tech City’ initiative has gained backing from global technology giants such as Google, Facebook and Intel.
The legacy of the 2012 Olympics was to further transform and regenerate east London, with the new Olympic Park a central focal point for a swathe of the city including, among other things, Europe’s largest urban shopping centre in the form of Westfield, which occupies almost two million square feet and incorporates a John Lewis department store, a seventeen-screen cinema and a Marks and Spencer amongst its 370 or so shops and restaurants.
In 2010, A Vision Document By The Mayor Of London Described The Future Of The Royal Docks, Identifying £22 Billion Of Development Potential For A Remarkable New District On The North Bank Of The River Thames
Enormous investment in transport infrastructure combined with Canary Wharf’s huge demand for high-quality housing and business services means this vision is swiftly becoming reality.
Framed by the O2 Arena – the world’s most successful indoor stadium – and the Thames Barrier, the Royal Docks project completes what is nothing less than a magnetic new mega-district for London. It’s the final stage in one of the most extraordinary regeneration projects the world has seen, one that began in the 1980s when The Docklands were reclaimed from the old quays of empire and transformed into a cluster of skyscrapers linked by a stunning network of walkways and waterfronts.
The Royal Docks Enterprise Zone, Is Central To The Regeneration Of East London
The Royal Docks is London’s only designated Enterprise zone, an area that provides a fantastic opportunity to develop in excess of 5 million sqft of commercial space along with homes and jobs.
With Crossrail On Its Way, Royal Wharf Is Set To Become One Of The Most Connected Areas In London
Currently the biggest construction project in Europe, the £15bn Crossrail line is a historic feat of railway planning. Its emergence will mean that east, central and west London are connected like never before, and that Royal Wharf will reap the benefit of closer-than-ever links with Liverpool Street and Farringdon in the City, as well as with a useful array of central London stations including Tottenham Court Road, Bond Street and Paddington.
A New Waterfront Community For London
For Decades People Have Been Saying That The Future Of London Is In The East. It Is Into That Future That Royal Wharf Emerges
A neighbourhood whose town squares and riverside promenades continue London’s knack for reinventing itself, while never forgetting the traditions that made it a global city in a league of its own.
Townhouse Living For A Modern Age
The ambition at Royal Wharf is to create London’s next great estate, a successor to the districts that have for centuries given the capital its world-famous character.
The Royal Wharf architectural vision is the result of a comprehensive research process that asked: what are the principles that make London’s finest Georgian districts work so well? City Squares, from Ebury in Belgravia to Grosvenor in Mayfair, were studied, their dimensions and ratios measured, their aesthetic analysed. The dream was to create several new Georgian squares near the river, around which would rise an exciting new, Fitzrovia-sized neighbourhood with a perfect interplay between public spaces and local businesses, leafy streets and sumptuous residences.
The Residences, A Mix Of Brick Townhouses And Apartment Buildings, Have Been Designed To A Range Of Sizes And Shapes So As To Create The Leaps Of Scale So Key To London’s Sense Of Itself
Unlike many of its central London cousins, however, Royal Wharf has the benefit of the immediate proximity of the widening river Thames. There is nothing else in the capital quite like the big skies and breathtaking views that are found out towards the river’s east.
This change in context informs a key architecture difference, that whereas the original Georgian squares tended to be built to the front of their surrounding properties, the squares of Royal Wharf are accessed from the back garden, creating a private space for those who neighbour them, a green enclosure to complement the blue of the river.
A London High Street
Great Neighbourhoods Enjoy More Than Just Geography And Architecture. They Need To Have An Atmosphere To Match, A Sense Of Community That Results From A Thriving Relationship Between The People And The Local Shops, Restaurants And Facilities. It’s All About The High Street.
With a population estimated to reach 10,000 residents, this is to be the Royal Docks’ new heartland, a town centre for one of the most exciting parts of London.
Set back from the river is a network of leafy streets and squares. A traditional high street lined with shops and businesses is criss-crossed with secondary streets that in turn grant access to quieter news.
Landscape is a key part of the masterplan, and a determination that all the open spaces, walkways and promenades, whether public or private, are above all fantastic living spaces.
The streets, squares and riverside promenade all act as gateways to a wide variety of shops, restaurants, parks and cafes. The atmosphere is one of al fresco living, amid a stretch of walkways and promenades that reward exploration with incredible vistas.
Entering Royal Wharf From The Local DLR Station At Pontoon Dock, You Will Immediately Arrive At Sovereign Place, The Local Market Square, A Bustling Piazza Replete With Retail And Restaurants
Sovereign Place is a square designed in the tradition of great civic spaces, a place of movement and atmosphere where people will gather and events can happen, anything from specialist cookery events to open-air performances.
Incorporating gentle curves, flag paving and on-street trees, the design of this classic market square, like that of the high street, recreates the subtle variations in scale that underpin the experience of walking through London’s traditional locales.
London’s historically most desirable areas, from stately Kensington to village-esque Marylebone, have an energy that attracts people from miles around. Royal Wharf arrives as their newest successor, an incredible place to live and a charming place to visit.
A Collection Of Facilities To Make You Feel At Home
Those who live in the wharf may wish to visit the concierge to collect keys of check for mail ( and perhaps drop into a neighbouring cafe), while those visiting may linger, or wander towards the river.
The Ambition Is For A Welcoming Multi-Faceted Neighbourhood, With Supermarkets And Specialist Grocers Providing Key Facilities For Everyday Shopping

From Townhouses To Apartments, All Of Royal Wharf’s Available Properties Are Infused With The Aesthetic And Values Of New Georgian Interiors
Residences are characterised by a sequence of spaces designed to a subtle hierarchy, carefully choreographed to give a clear sense of movement and change. You will encounter open-plan spaces connected by doorways that subtly frame the view into the next room, expansive windows look out onto breathtaking vistas of the Thames barrier or Canary Wharf and the spacious balconies.

The Newly Devised, Three-Storey Royal Wharf Townhouses Revive The Renaissance Tradition Of The Piano Nobile (From The Italian ‘Noble Floor’)
The piano nobile feature sees a large house being assigned a principal level, usually a single flight of stairs above the ground floor. A popular feature of original Georgian townhouses, it sees visitors swept up from a grand entrance and into an impressive first-floor entertaining space, all the better to look out onto the square outside. Royal Wharf’s modern reworking of the piano nobile offers high ceilings in a large and open space spilt into two connected sections, one slightly more formal than the other. Access is via a master staircase and a beautifully tiled hallway, with each subsequent floor occupying a clear place within the building’s hierarchy, from a bathroom, two bedrooms and a study on the second floor to a master bedroom with en suite bathroom and foor terrace on the floor above.
Each Townhouse Kitchen Is A Large Entertaining Space In Its Own Right, With An Attached Dining Room And A View That Looks Out Into The Garden And Town Square Beyond.
Royal Wharf’s Residences Combine The Open-Plan Interior Design Beloved Of Contemporary Homeowners With A Sense Of Proportion
Balance And Aesthetic Taste This Is Characteristic Of Georgian Residential Architecture. The Result Is A Style Of Riverside Home That Updates Tradition While Still Respecting It.
