Notting Hill Sales launches first phase of homes at Royal Albert Wharf in the Royal Docks

Notting Hill Sales has launched the first phase of homes for private sale at the new waterside neighbourhood in the Royal Docks.

The largest Notting Hill Sales development to date, Royal Albert Wharf will not only create an entirely new waterside neighbourhood beside the Royal Docks but it will also contribute to the dock’s wider masterplan to attract new businesses with new commercial opportunities and incubator space for start-up companies .

Bordered by water with the Albert Basin to the west, the River Thames to the east and a former shipping Lock to the South, Royal Albert Wharf will transform a brownfield site into an entirely new waterside community in East London. The 100-year old working pump house remains at the heart of the development reminding residents of the site’s rich heritage.

Once complete, the entire Royal Albert Wharf development will provide over 1,500 new homes for private sale, Shared Ownership, private rent, affordable rent and target rent; as well as over 8,000m2 of mixed, non-residential space.

The first phase comprises 350 new homes (123 for private sale, 72 for shared ownership / flexible product, 82 target and affordable rent homes and 73 for private rent) and incubator space for start-up businesses.

As part of Newham’s Arc of Opportunity regeneration zone and in conjunction with the largest urban regeneration project in Western Europe (the London Docklands), the Royal Docks cover a water area of nearly 250 acres. The surrounding area comprises of 220 hectares of land, 6.2 hectares of which have been allocated to the Royal Albert Wharf development. The wider regeneration of the Royal Docks is set to create over 9,000 homes by 2027, including a mix of bars, restaurants and retail spaces as well as public spaces and improved public transport, pedestrian and cycle routes.
