Sales from the riverside: Here’s how new build homes are changing the face of London’s marinas


This stretch of riverside by Imperial Wharf Marina in the exclusive postcode of SW6 is currently being developed by Barratt London. New public walkways through landscaped piazzas, podium gardens and a continuation of the Thames river walk will grace this area and a waterfront cafe is proposed along the riverside. This is all in aid of 450 homes set in modern architecture, ranging from studios to triplex penthouses, all with terraces or balconies overlooking gardens or the Thames itself.

Nine Elms Marina is one of the largest regeneration sites in London, encompassing the iconic Battersea Power Station. Situated next to the £1.5bn extension to the Northern Line – which is due to be completed in 2019 – Barratt London is also developing a series of landscaped courtyards and elevated walkways around this scheme of 593 new homes, from studios, one, two, three bedroom apartments and penthouses. These will be spread across seven futuristic-looking metallic buildings, including a 37-storey skyscraper.

The City fringe on its east side is home to many marinas, but the most significant body of water surviving from the historic London Docks resides in the Shadwell Basin. Soon, new residents will be able to overlook it from the fourth floor of Telford Homes’ new development, The Junction, which has a rooftop garden specifically reserved for such a pastime. The first new Eastenders are due to move in next summer and they’re bound to enjoy the restaurants and bars at nearby St Katharine Docks and the riverside pubs of Wapping.

The Zone Two location is also convenient for accessing the Thames Clipper service so you can have a stress-free commute.
