City and Urban International has witnessed first-hand the 30 year transformation and regeneration of Docklands East London into the booming district it is today. Once the heart of trade, shipping and economic growth in the UK, through to its isolation and abandoned ports during de-industrialisation in the 1970s – today the region is once again full of opportunity and promise through continued inward-investment and a flourishing property market.
Whether you desire a riverside penthouse with panoramic views, characterful warehouse conversion, live-work space studio, period family home with high ceilings, a schemed new build apartment with wintergarden, a retail unit or an office/industrial space – London Docklands and surrounding cater for everyone’s lifestyles and needs. With a stunning riverscape, vivid urban skyline of new and historic design, cutting-edge developments and excellent social provisions – it’s the in-demand place to live and work.
Some pioneering projects to propel affordable, sustainable, as well as luxury residential property supply and to establish new thriving commercial centres include London City Island, prestigious One Park Drive, Poplar’s pipeline of 2500 new homes, Ailsa Wharf on the River Lea and the £3.5bn Royal Wharf redevelopment of Docklands to name a few.
Canary Wharf E14 is the capitals premier financial district and now also home to tech/media/cultural hubs bringing with it an abundance of chic bars and restaurants, varied leisure and entertainment provisions, range of hotels, plethora of shops and a host of amenities. Nearby E15 offers state-of-the-art facilities in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park (‘London 2012’ legacy), the London Stadium and Aquatics Centre, Westfield shopping centre, and an ever increasing number of businesses taking up residency in Stratford Village E20. London ExCel, East London’s exhibition centre in E16, attracts scores of visitors yearly. The three Docks (Victoria, Albert and George V) in E16 are being propelled by huge investment plans of the Asian Business Port (ABP) to re-establish Docklands as the home of global trade and commerce. The Docks also cater for the outdoor water-sport and sailing enthusiast.
Transport and infrastructure include London City Airport serving European destinations and New York with Government approved expansion and investment creating further jobs and prosperity; the Docklands Light Railway (DLR) network connecting the East and the City; well positioned Tube and Bus links; the much awaited Crossrail terminals; Emirates Cable Car and Blackwall Tunnel connecting south of the river and the O2 Arena; further Riverbus, Bridge and Tunnel plans; and a vast road network with the A13, A12, A406, M11 and M25 easily accessible. Open spaces include nearby Royal Greenwich Park, Victoria Park and Thames Barrier Park. Newham University Hospital and a large selection of schooling options including UEL take care of essential public services.
