St William, part of the Berkeley Group, has launched Poplar Riverside, a major new riverside neighbourhood on the banks of the River Lea in Poplar, London.
A significant new chapter for this part of the capital, Poplar Riverside occupies 20 acres and will provide 2,800 new homes, a new school, a new park, as well as a gym, a crèche, shops, restaurants and cafes all set to become a new and vibrant Zone 2/3 neighbourhood.
Life on the Waterfront
A sustainable, green community sits at the heart of St William’s vision for Poplar Riverside, with landscaped gardens and open space covering more than half of the scheme.
The new riverside walkway and park will create a vibrant outdoor public space to be enjoyed throughout the seasons. Designed by LDA Design, the landscape will include 227 semi-mature trees (including the rare Black Poplar), thousands of shrubs and tens of thousands of plants to create a variety of new natural habitats. The new green open spaces will create a 55% gain in Net Biodiversity.
A new play area will be incorporated within the park, alongside a large terrace and a 10,000 sq ft outdoor performance space at Shelduck Square that will be used for public events. In addition, a public square featuring a café and Wi-Fi-enabled spaces will serve as a venue for community events.
Riverside homes and world-class residents’ facilities
New homes reflect the character, colours, and textures of the surrounding East London architecture. All apartments feature outside space, many with river, park and city views. The spacious internal layouts and large feature windows flood rooms with natural light.
As part of the extensive regeneration, St William is delivering 16,000 sq ft of carefully considered residents’ facilities to meet today’s demands of living in the capital. Residents can unwind with far reaching views of the River Lea from The Riverside Club, which will include a 20-metre swimming pool, a vitality pool, salt inhalation room, steam room and private treatment room. Working from home is made easy with exclusive workspace facilities, including a large business lounge with open plan spaces and meeting rooms. A vibrant social scene will be created thanks to a Den Lounge, private hire dining rooms, cinema and games room. Residents will also have access to a 24-hour concierge service.
