Royal Wharf, a new neighbourhood by Ballymore and Oxley, today announces an agreement with Fuller’s for the occupation of new commercial space.
The London brewer and premium pub company will occupy a prime commercial unit in the first phase of the development. The new site has direct river frontage and a 2,000 sq ft. area for alfresco eating. It will deliver the excellent food, drink and service experience that Fuller’s pubs are famous for and is scheduled to open for business later in the year.
Located in the heart of London’s Royal Docks £3.5 bn regeneration area, Royal Wharf is an exciting new destination for Londoners to live, work and visit. The announcement follows the arrival of Starbucks, the nation’s best-known coffee outlet, which opened a 1,750 sq. ft. store as well as a 3,961 sq. ft. Sainsbury’s, both of which opened in 2017.
The arrival of new commercial tenants is evidence of Ballymore and Oxley’s commitment to the creation of a vibrant community at Royal Wharf. Namely, the development is centred around a vibrant high street and local market square, Sovereign Place, with shops, restaurants, bars and cafes leading to a network of leafy streets and squares. Situated on 40 acres of riverside land, the residential development includes suites, one, two and three bedroom apartments as well as three and four bedroom townhouses.
The buildings themselves are inspired by the traditional Georgian architecture of Belgravia and Fitzrovia, in keeping with the classic character of London yet contemporary in style. The developers, Oxley and Ballymore, have made full use of the industrial materials reflected in the surrounding docklands, all in all creating a rich variety of architectural styles that will stand the test of time.
Moments from Canary Wharf, Royal Wharf has outstanding transport links to central London. Travelling from Pontoon Dock and West Silvertown on the DLR or Canning Town on the Jubilee Line will enable residents to reach the West End in 20 minutes, Canary Wharf in five minutes and London City Airport in two minutes. A new Crossrail station at Custom House will mean that residents can reach Heathrow Airport in just 41 minutes and the West End in 15 minutes. In addition, the Emirates Air Line, London’s only cross-river cable car, is a short walk away.
Royal Wharf has just completed its 1000th home, having only welcomed its first residents in 2017. A further 200 units are due to complete early this year and all 3,385 new homes on the development are now under construction or complete, making the pace and scale of development on this scheme unprecedented for London.
