Ballymore and Oxley collaboratively launch Riverscape, an exciting new neighborhood in the heart of the Royal Docks, positioned to benefit from the area’s rapid redevelopment.

With over £8bn investment over the next 20 years, The Royal Docks is embarking on a brand-new stage offering a wide range of way to live and develop in London. It is not only an opportunity for local domestic market¸ but also a valuable opportunity for global investors to capture the exciting new chapter of this London’s only Enterprise Zone.

Diverse commercial district

As The Royal Docks is one of the only 48 London’s Enterprise Zone in the country, large scale of plan including 35,000 jobs and 4,000 homes are forecast within the zone while 60,000 jobs and 25,500 homes in the wider area

The Royal Docks Enterprise Zone, which is overseen by the London Economic Action Partnership (LEAP), covers 125 hectares with strategically important land owned by the Mayor of London. Tax breaks and other business incentives provided by the government which make the Royal Docks stands unique. Royal Albert Dock, which targets to become a trade hub for Asian businesses investing in the UK is also another driving force to attract global companies enter the zone and expand their business.

Infrastructure improvements

Apart from West Silvertown DLR is just a mere 2 minutes’ walk away from Riverscape, Crossrail station (Custom House, due to open in 2022) and the Silvertown Tunnel connecting the Royal Docks to Greenwich Peninsula (set to complete in 2025) will be the remarkable infrastructure advancement upgrading the site linking. The new Royal Wharf Pier which is already in operation with fast access to the city via Uber Boat by Thames Clippers, and the expansion of London City Airport make residents travel by road, rail or river is effortless in Riverscape.

Strong rental growth forecast

Support by the key transport and infrastructure improvements, JLL forecasts there will be great potential on both the price and rental growth in the Royal Docks. The Royal Docks already benefits from excellent connectivity through its existing infrastructure, and this is set to make further progress through significant investment in the coming years. Rental growth is forecast to be strong in 2022 and 2023 once Crossrail opens and as more high quality, new build rental stock becomes available. An average of 3.2% rental growth per annum totaling 17.1% compound growth between 2022 and 2026 is in foresee future. This forecast represents an outperformance vs London (12%) and the UK (10%) over the next five years showing the sharp competitiveness of the Royal Docks

Thriving new riverside community

The Covid-19 pandemic have re-emphasized people’s desire for vibrant, social, and attractive communities in which to live, their living priorities therefore changed. The Royal Docks is not just a commercial zone with excellent connectivity to the city centre, workplaces, and the world beyond, it is also a well-planned community offering different amenities such as gardens, outdoor markets, shops, cafes and restaurants. Accessible green places including River Thames and Lyle Park help people to strike the balance between work and life. Having a combination of these features locally has been proven to enhance the community bonding since Royal Wharf estate has established community spirit with its 10,000 residents. An independent nursery and outstanding primary school suit the needs of family with children too.

Riverscape will comprise ten residential blocks and 769 homes. First completions are scheduled for Q3 2023, with prices starting from £399,950 for a one-bedroom apartment.

New riverfront development in the heart of the Royal Docks

On 25th September, Ballymore and Oxley has appointed JLL to launch Riverscape, London’s stunning new Thames riverfront development for sale in Hong Kong. Riverscape is set to be one of London’s greenest and best-connected riverside developments, perfectly located on the River Thames, between the 40 acre Royal Wharf estate and Lyle Park. Minutes from two Docklands Light Rail stations and a short walk to Crossrail, Riverscape has been designed with a forward-thinking ‘new age of living’ in mind; panoramic waterfront views and lush green open spaces combine to create a real sense of calm.

Capitalising on the Royal Docks regeneration story

The official launch of Riverscape offers the best opportunity for investors to become part of the Royal Docks success story. Once the world’s largest enclosed dockland, Royal Docks has already established itself as London’s most ambitious regeneration area and its only Enterprise Zone.

A further £8 billion is set to be invested in the area, delivering 25,000 new homes and 60,000 jobs over the coming years. At the end of this year, the nearby Crystal building will become home to the Mayor of London and the Greater London Authority, inevitably attracting further investment and business to the area. The ExCel global conference centre is set to expand by 12,000 sq. m., while the Elizabeth Line (Crossrail) is expected to open at Custom House, and £500m is being invested in neighbouring London City Airport to strengthen Royal Docks’ direct links to the city and expanding global flight routes.

Waterfront Living

The south-facing waterfront position of the development allows for uninterrupted views across the Thames, green parkland and the iconic Canary Wharf skyline.  The wide riverside promenades link the development to the Royal Wharf Estate and beyond, while the Royal Wharf Pier, which opened in 2019, will enable residents to catch the Uber Boat by Thames Clippers from their doorstep, allowing the river to become an integral part of their lifestyle.

Green Open Spaces

Not only does Riverscape enjoy unrivalled access to two of London’s riverside parks, but lush green open spaces designed by Huw Morgan, will be at the very core of the development, with over 5,500 m2 of beautiful courtyards and walkways of green pines and ornamental Japanese and American maples. 24 acres of parkland ‘book-end’ the development, with the historic Lyle Park at one end, and Thames Barrier Park at the other, allowing residents to enjoy getting ‘back-to-nature'.

Quality of design

The buildings, designed by Glenn Howells Architects, will set a new architectural standard for sophisticated urban living, giving Riverscape its own distinct identity.  Apartment have enviably large picture windows, which will perfectly frame the breath-taking river views. Flexible day rooms provide additional living space to create a home office, playroom, art studio or dining area with stunning natural light, an inner- sanctuary within the apartment.

The interiors, designed by Amos & Amos, have been inspired by the surrounding riverscape and parkland. Through the use of materials like bronze mirror, fluted glass, and weathered wood, the apartments have been designed to connect the living spaces with the nature surrounding Riverscape. The lobby has the same textured worn stone herringbone floor that is used for the park side pedestrian paths, and Amos has used ceramic zig zag styled tiles on the walls to play with the reflection of light.

Flexible, ‘new-age’ living

The contemporary lifestyle offering at Riverscape has been designed to meet modern-day requirements, with access to a 24-hour concierge service, dedicated estate management team and a bespoke App, with ‘lifestyle management’ at the touch of a button. 

From the moment residents arrive, they will enjoy show-stopping lobbies with real wow factor, and have the use of The Sky Lounge, a private space on the top of the Deanston building. The Sky Lounge can be used by Riverscape residents as a co-working space or a private dining and events space, and will enjoy stunning panoramic views over the River Thames, Canary Wharf and beyond. 

Residents will also get membership to The Clubhouse at Royal Wharf and take advantage of a wealth of facilities including a 25m swimming pool, hydrotherapy pool, sauna, jacuzzi, gym powered by Technogym’s latest equipment, and a wide array of ‘on-trend’ classes and fitness options.

A ready-made community

Residents at Riverscape will become part of the ready-made, family-focussed neighbourhood of the Royal Wharf estate, with its 10,000 residents and established community spirit. 

There are a range of excellent education facilities for families. This includes the Royal Wharf Primary Academy school, which teaches 450 reception to year six pupils, and the Nest innovative day nursery school. The Nest encourages 6 months to 5 year olds in Newham to enjoy their learning, develop an inquisitive mindset, and become increasingly aware of the world around them.

They will also be able to benefit from the existing amenities on the Royal Wharf Estate, such as a local GP, high street, dentist, pub, regular farmers market, and an active community centre which has become a real social ‘hub’ for the neighbourhood.

Unrivalled connectivity

Riverscape’s connectivity is exceptional, by road, rail, water, bicycle or even air. Two DLR stations, West Silvertown and Pontoon Dock, are just minutes away, with fast links to Canary Wharf, and reaching London City Airport in just 4 minutes.  The new Crossrail station opening at Custom House is also reachable in less than a ten minute walk, meaning residents can reach Heathrow Airport in just 44 minutes, and the West End in 20 minutes.

The new riverboat terminal – the Royal Wharf Pier - will present a new and more comfortable way for residents to travel to many of the capital’s most visited destinations, including Canary Wharf in 23 minutes, London Bridge City in 38 minutes, Blackfriars in 45 minutes and Embankment in 52 minutes. 

Ballymore and Oxley’s track record of success

Riverscape builds on Ballymore and Oxley’s strong reputation and track record in creating exciting new neighbourhoods in east London.  John Mulryan, Group MD Ballymore, Ballymore comments:

“We are delighted to be bringing this exceptional new development to the Royal Docks with Oxley.  Ballymore has always recognised the potential of east London, having successfully launched City Island, Royal Wharf, Wardian and Goodluck Hope. Riverscape sets a new benchmark for quality in this part of London.”

Hot investment target

Mandy Wong, Head of International Residential at JLL in Hong Kong, said: "Royal Docks is becoming a new, distinctive London neighbourhood with the concept of a 15-minute city and excellent connectivity to the city centre, workplaces and the world. Our firm forecasts that Royal Docks will see a 30% increase in home prices in the five years to the end of 2026 with buyers attracted by the premium riverside location and lifestyle opportunity. This will represent a significant outperformance of both London (25% growth) and the UK (20.5%) overall. Residential rents are also set to benefit from the completion of the new Customs House Crossrail Station and will rise an average of 3.2% per annum between 2022 and 2026."

Riverscape will comprise ten residential blocks and 769 homes. First completions are scheduled for Q3 2023, with prices at Riverscape starting from £399,950 (approximately HKD4.27 million) for a one-bedroom apartment.

Just 23 minutes by train from London Paddington, Reading has long been a favourite of commuters looking for cheaper rents than the capital. Now, heavy investment in business facilities, education and transport infrastructure are making the town even more appealing to professionals, families, and property investors.

Reasons to invest in Reading

Named the fastest growing region in the UK by Ernst & Young from 2020 to 2023, Reading is set for consistent growth as investments in business parks and the new £900 million Crossrail station continue to drive demand and property values in the coming years. Reading's digital sector is one of the most concentrated in the UK, attracting major global companies such as Microsoft and Huawei that can benefit from world-class amenities and a steady supply of talent from overseas and the local University of Reading, which ranked in the top 30 universities in the UK.

Big city perks without the downside

Many London commuters prefer living in Reading for its lower prices and the smaller town experience. Reading offers the experiences of modern city living on a manageable scale, the River Thames and Berkshire countryside being within easy reach. The Oracle and Broad Street shopping malls are at opposite ends of the high street, featuring a mix of big brands, independent boutiques and eclectic eateries catering to Reading's multi-ethnic population. There's also fine dining at the London Street Brasserie and Michelin-starred L'Ortolan.

Strong education provision

Families moving to Reading will appreciate having nature and heritage sites on the doorstep, as well as high-performing local schools that boast some of the best GCSE and A-level grades in the UK.

Riverside living

New residential developments are meeting the demand for well-connected property in Reading, from CBD apartments to the Berkeley Group's new riverside quarter Huntley Wharf, a residential-led development with commercial and communal facilities a short walk from Reading station.

The regeneration of Shoreditch in the East End ranks alongside Canary Wharf as one of London's great success stories of the 21st century so far, but its rise to prominence has been more rapid. The past decade has seen many of the world's best and brightest creatives relocating to be part of the emerging East London Tech City – nicknamed the 'Silicon Roundabout' as London's answer to Silicon Valley, and home to many of the same names, including the likes of Google, Facebook and Amazon among thousands of ambitious startups.

The explosive growth of Shoreditch has made available property scarce, and new residential developments are highly in demand by professionals and local and overseas property investors who are keen to capitalize on house price increases, set to be greater than in Central London. One of the most significant new residential projects entering the market this year is The Makers, a mixed-use development of 175 private residential units, exclusive amenities and a college, located off a quiet street with convenient access to Tech City and the London lifestyle.

 

Work-life balance in Shoreditch

Shoreditch has global appeal for creatives and tech-savvy entrepreneurs for its collaborative startup culture, business support facilities and excellent transport connections. London City Airport is just 26 minutes from Old Street station by train (four minutes' walk from The Makers), while Heathrow Airport is 50 minutes away. Journey times across London and South East England will be improved when Crossrail services begin at nearby Liverpool Street station in 2021, which will also give a boost to house prices and rents in the surrounding area.

Convenient transport links put other London experiences in easy reach, but there's no shortage of restaurants, bars, shops and cultural venues to serve the local community. From bargain hunting at Old Spitalfields Market to catching events at the Barbican and dining out in Islington, there's plenty to enjoy within walking distance. Shoreditch is also a remarkably green part of London, abundant with canalside parks and other recreational areas.

Families moving to Shoreditch with children will be pleased to know that it's in the capture area of some of the city's most prestigious schools, while higher education institutions such as King's College, Central St Martin's and the London School of Economics are within 30 minutes' travel. The development at The Makers also includes a co-located school, New Regent's College, which will provide state-of-the-art education for pupils aged 5 to 16.

 

Design-led luxury living

Tucked away behind busy City Road on the corner of Nile Street and Jasper Walk, The Makers is a collaborative project between established developers Londonewcastle, the London

Borough of Hackney and the Local Education Partnership. Avanti Architects were tasked with designing this new residential landmark, which draws inspiration from the surrounding architecture and rises 28 stories, including a 7-story podium block.

The interiors by Woods Bagot have a distinctly 1920s flavor, from the grand, double-height entrance lobby to the brass fixtures. Buyers can choose from studio flats, two or three-bedroom apartments or family duplexes and penthouses adding more premium finishes and furnishings. All residents will enjoy views over Canary Wharf, the City of London and the West End from their balcony or terrace, as well as use of private communal facilities including a gym and treatment room, screening room, lounges, garden terraces and a 24/7 concierge.

A number of units at The Makers are now available and ready for occupation. Buying before the end of March 2021 means overseas property investors can qualify for Stamp Duty and Land Tax (SDLT) relief, making a London property purchase more affordable.

Showcase scheme for Old Kent Road regeneration brings warehouse apartments and flexible workspaces to London Bridge area

 

Overseas property buyers looking for an entry point to Central London could do worse than Bermondsey. Walking distance from London Bridge and the iconic sights and sounds of the city, this up-and-coming area on the south bank of the River Thames has been name-dropped by The Sunday Times as one of the best places to live in London. There are plenty of reasons why.

Like many neighborhoods along the river, Bermondsey was a thriving manufacturing quarter until London's economy shifted and the industrial landmarks fell into disrepair. Ongoing urban renewal projects such as the Old Kent Road Area Action Plan are giving these old warehouses a new lease on life, reborn as fashionable restaurants, art spaces and luxury apartments tailor-made for professionals and students who want to live close to the action.

The landmark residential scheme of the Old Kent Road regeneration is London Square Bermondsey. This new neighborhood is bringing warehouse-style living, workspaces and art studios to SE1 in a mix of new builds and refurbished heritage buildings dating back to the 19th century. The latest phase to enter the market is a collection of one, two and three-bedroom apartments on the site of the former Branston Pickle Factory, offering spectacular views over the London skyline.

 

 

Industrial quarter to foodie mecca

A stroll down Bermondsey Street will reveal why this district has become a favorite of Londoners in recent years. Cosmopolitan even by London standards, the streets are lined with gourmet restaurants, chic cocktail bars, artisan emporiums and cultural venues such as the White Cube Gallery and Fashion and Textile Museum. This culminates with the Bermondsey Street Festival, which takes over the street with vendors and entertainment for one day each September.

Close proximity to London Bridge means famous landmarks such as the Shard, London Eye and Big Ben are within walking distance, as are the business facilities of London Bridge City and More London, home of leading financial services firms and other global businesses. Students and families with children will also find some of London's most prestigious schools and universities in the local area, including King's College London and South Bank University.

From London Bridge Underground station, it's just six minutes to Canary Wharf or 10 minutes to the City of London (a.k.a. the Square Mile), London's two major finance and business districts. Bond Street shopping is less than 10 minutes away and it takes a little over 20 minutes to catch international connections at London City Airport. Thames Clipper river taxis from London Bridge City Pier offer a scenic alternative for destinations on both sides of the river.

 

 

Vibrant new neighborhood

The premier residential development in the area, London Square Bermondsey will become the heart of the new community in the new decade. Through the vision of architects AHMM, the mixed-use buildings celebrate Bermondsey's past while updating it to fit modern sensibilities, connected to the surrounding area by public squares and walkways.

The Pickle Factory epitomizes this blending of industrial heritage with contemporary style, from its grand entrance to the open-plan warehouse-style apartments on the upper floors. Critall-style windows frame iconic views over the City skyline and Canary Wharf, taking in the Walkie Talkie building and the Shard, while Siemens appliances, high-end electronics and a choice of color palettes set the scene for luxury city living.

Residents also have access to an exclusive suite of amenities housed in the lower floors of The Pickle Factory and other buildings across the development. These include a private meeting room, Beach Garden, fully-equipped gym and a hotel-style concierge. The development will also incorporate commercial and creative spaces, including new premises of Tannery Arts to support local artists.

A select number of units are now available for overseas property investors in Hong Kong and other locations.
