Top 3 reasons why you should buy your next home in the Royal Docks

Ten minutes away from Canning Town via the DLR, a former shipping dock by Gallions Reach is attracting the attention of buyers in London. By 2022, the Royal Docks will be called home by thousands of residents shaping a young, fresh community.

Whilst this London regeneration project may just seem like another collection of ‘new builds’, lining a 100-year old Edwardian ‘Pump House’ is a growing community centred around a new housing development. Once you see the modern architecture, high-spec features and East Beckton’s growing potential, it becomes a real contender to consider…

Great London links

Royal Albert Wharf is based just 0.3km away from the closest station: Gallions Reach DLR. From there, it’s under a 20 minute journey to Canary Wharf and a 29 minute journey to Bank. Residents also benefit from living less than 25 minutes DLR journey from Westfield Shopping Centre, next to Stratford station! The development is also just a short distance away from Gallions Reach Shopping Park – meaning living here is just five minute drive away from the likes of: TK Maxx, Pure Gym, Nandos and an Asda superstore.

Stunning sights on your doorstep

Whilst residents enjoy great links across the rest of the city, an extra benefit enjoyed by those living at Royal Albert Wharf include breath-taking views of the river Thames:
“My apartment is on the fifth floor and comes with a private balcony, so I have got some great views over the docks that I will definitely be enjoying” - First time buyer, Sean Modi.

Royal Albert Wharf is close to New Beckton Park, Royal Victoria Gardens and Thames Barrier Park. Residents benefit from living in this location by having almost immediate access to the perfect jogging routes, picnic/BBQ sites and much more. Residents also have access to an outdoor gym, providing a cheaper choice for those looking to maintain fitness.

East London’s newest community

When you move into Royal Albert Wharf, you move into a growing community which is home to enthusiastic locals curating a diverse range of arts and leisure activities. Residents benefit from access to R.A.W studios on their doorstep which offers 40 affordable studio spaces constructed by Bow Arts These extra spaces, designed by Delvendahl Martin Architects and led by Bow Arts, host a number of cultural on-site activities curating a growing programme of art, events, conversations, yoga classes, film screenings, exhibitions and so much more. Access to these studios provides residents with an opportunity to build the programme by enabling locals to host their own sessions and contributing to the community programme reemphasises a sense of belonging, a feeling that some struggle to find when living in London.

Next month will see the launch of phase two at Royal Albert Wharf and 150 brand new homes will become available to buy with shares starting at £111,250 for a 25% share.
