Re-imagining Leven Wharf

RE-IMAGINING LEVEN WHARF

Business investment in the area is also making news with a £1billion regeneration planned for the Royal Albert Dock to create a hub for Asian businesses and a unique trading link between Europe and Asia. A £250 million regeneration programme is planned at Aberfeldy Village in Poplar and will create 1,174 new homes, new open spaces and landscaped areas, as well as healthcare facilities, retail outlets and community centre. It will also create new job opportunities both during construction and following completion.

 

London City Island, on the Leamouth Peninsular, will see the creation of not only new apartments but a new community, encompassing homes, work, culture and leisure, all in one place. Hoola at Royal Victoria Dock will provide 360 new homes as well as shared facilities including a gym, residents lounge and business lounge.

 

UNDER ONE KILOMETRE NORTH OF THE DOCKLANDS AND TWO KILOMETRES EAST OF THE CITY, LEVEN WHARF IS AT THE HEART OF A SUPERBLY POSITIONED RESIDENTIAL AREA.

 

This exciting, well placed area is benefitting from a wealth of investment, as can be seen in the high quality developments that are planned for, and indeed taking place. Not just residential but also commercial and infrastructure, proving the importance of this strategic location and it’s continued growth, being to be a catalyst for further future investment, growth and enterprise. Immediately to the west is Devon Wharf, a high quality residential development, recently completed and fully sold with a riverside walkway that links to Leven Wharf’s. To the east is a former gasworks that has already been decommissioned in readiness for development. The site extends to about 8.5 hectares for a large-scale housing development Berkeley Homes. The ultimate goal is to transform Poplar Riverside into a revitalised residential community with strategic housing development, a primary school and landscaping that integrates into the Lea River Park.
