Twelvetrees Park is a new build development in West Ham, East London, which will deliver 3,838 new homes, with phase 1 to complete in 2024. The site will be surrounded by 12 acres of open green space, landscaped gardens, and a WIFI-enabled park.

Evergreen Point will be the first building to launch at TwelveTrees Park and will comprise studios, one, two, and three-bedroom apartments, all individually designed to meet the high Berkeley quality standards. There will also be apartments for rent and shared ownership through Peabody –  TwelveTrees Park offers something for everyone.  With stunning views of Canary Wharf and The Shard, and designed with modern lifestyles in mind, Berkeley’s new development epitomises urban living with a Luxury Twist.

What is the history behind TweleveTrees Park?

Sean Gavin Operations Director for Berkeley South East London said:

“This site was one of the first GLA sites that were brought to a development manager. It was a car park for the Olympics construction and then it was a sorting office and depot for Parcelforce, so logistically it is very good. West Ham Station has always been a crossover station where people go through it, whilst not many people come out. We are currently constructing the connecting bridges to the station, so you have your own entrance, which is brilliant.”

With one of the most connected stations in East London, West Ham Station is already a busy transport hub today with 5 major transport lines that train to serve the station every single day. A brand new entrance to the station will be constructed as part of the TwelveTrees Park masterplan to better serve all residents. 

What makes TwelveTrees Park such a flagship development for Berkeley?

“You have everything you need on your doorstep, if you want to pop out for some food you can head to the local store, or if you want to work out you can be at the gym in minutes. You also have great cycle routes which go all the way through to canning town and London City Island. The on-site community gardens offer residents flexible space for activities, from gardening to education to group meetings and parties.”

The 4.5-acre wifi-enabled linear park runs through the development and will be at the heart of TwelveTrees Park and a focal point for people to meet and socialise, with restaurants and cafés spilling out into the park as part of a new shopping and leisure quarter at the development. Reflecting twenty-first-century living, the central park will be fully WiFi-enabled meaning those who work or study from home will have the flexibility to be outdoors and surrounded by nature, while maker-space studios support London’s budding creatives in the pursuit of their passions.

Have the requirements of what buyers are looking for changed since the Pandemic?

“People want to understand how good the Wi-Fi is. We have introduced a Wi-Fi park and we are also pushing out a special connectivity pack, where you get your smart speaker, free Netflix packages and you come into your apartment and everything is set up and ready for you. People are definitely asking about Wi-Fi, amenities, and the layout of the apartments a bit more.

“We have always thought of home office provisions way before lockdown, we would analyse where would someone work from home. Where do you sit down and do your online shopping?” 

“We have introduced 2 parks in the development, a specially designed science garden, and a linear park, which is great to go sit when the weather is good” 

Fresh, modern, and exciting homes designed for life are what epitomises a typical Berkeley Home. TwelveTrees Park ticks all the boxes for everyday living from work, leisure, and education. Residents will be delighted with the on-site amenities available which include access to a gym, resident’s lounge, screening room and business lounge. 

Busy and hard-working parents will have all the everyday necessities on-site including a science school that specialises in STEM (Science, technology, engineering, and maths). The science school will also offer after-hours events and classes for everyone, while the community hub is the focal point for a huge range of activities.
