Greenwich Peninsula

Spanning 150 acres and wrapped in 1.6 miles of the River Thames, Greenwich Peninsula, South-East London is one of the largest urban regeneration scheme in Europe. Developer, Knight Dragon, is investing £8.4 billion over the next 15 years to create a thriving waterside district and a cultural centrepiece for London. Fast becoming the capital’s most boldly modern landscape, it will create 15,000 new homes, 13,000 new jobs and 7 diverse new neighbourhoods, alongside new shops, restaurants, event venues, a new school and an elevated cultural walkway – The Tide.

The latest of the seven neighbourhoods to complete is Upper Riverside, which introduces five striking new waterfront buildings to London’s iconic skyline. Together, the buildings offer homes with far-reaching river and city views, alongside a series of communal roof gardens, to create a new waterside social hub. Inside, the interiors of each of the five riverside towers have been conceived by different interior designers, including Sophie Ashby and Tom Dixon, bringing together the capital’s best talent to create private and social spaces each with their own distinctive character – offering a range of styles to suit all lifestyles and tastes among design lovers.

The Brentford Project

In comparison to its higher-profile neighbours, Brentford has previously gone unnoticed, despite its desirable riverside location, proximity to major business hubs and its superb connections across the capital and beyond. Spanning 11.8 acres across the southern half of the town’s high street, developer Ballymore is revitalising the West London town centre with new retail, cultural, community and leisure spaces alongside 876 new homes and expansive new landscaped spaces. As a nod to the area’s industrial past, a series of characterful yards and lanes will reconnect the high street to the river, where there’s destined to be a new foodie hub with restaurants, cafés and pubs lining the waterfront. Extensions to the Thames path will also create new routes to walk by the water.

The first collection of homes comprises a range of studios, one, two and three-bedroom apartments with open plan layouts and floor-to-ceiling glazing, and many with cantilevered terraces. From nearby Brentford train station, residents are also just 12 minutes from Clapham Junction and 24 minutes from Waterloo, while London Heathrow Airport is 15 minutes by road.  Prices start from £369,500.
