Views across the Thames together with shared and private outdoor spaces and on-site parking are just a few of the great features of this docklands-development.

This mixed-tenure scheme has created 89 new homes – 76 for private sale together with 13 affordable (four of which are for shared ownership). This development sits in the heart of a regeneration area, close to the Galleons Reach Docklands Light Railway station.

Homes feature large windows, many of which overlook the River Thames and Albert Docks. Contrasting light and dark brick blocks of mixed height create a dynamic, contemporary feel.

Each property has its own private outdoor space as well as modern interiors, a shared landscaped garden and security including video entryphones. Heating and hot water are provided by a combined heat and power plant and the secure car park includes space for 35 vehicles with designated electric car charging points and space for 150 bicycles.

The scheme also includes a children’s play area.
