Placed on the edge of Royal Docks, the new residential complex boasts a riverside location with the River Thames on one side and the docks on the other, enjoying beautiful water sceneries that belong to the London Borough of Newham. The fast-growing riverside industrial district is steadily becoming a new hub for business and culture in London, keeping up with the nearby Canary Wharf. The area is packed with numerous eateries, shops, and businesses that provide everything residents might need.
To get some rest from all the noise and stress, residents of Royal Albert Wharf are welcomed to enjoy the serene sanctuary of Royal Victoria Gardens that offers riverside strolls amidst its lush greenery. For more active leisure, the park features a splash pool, a playground, and tennis courts.
Royal Docks have unrivalled transport connections. Linking the area to Canary Wharf, Waterloo, and Heathrow Airport, the Gallions Reach DLR station is within touching distance of Royal Albert Wharf. In addition, London City Airport is just a 7-minute drive away.
Standing along the River Thames, the 4 mid-rise buildings of Royal Albert Wharf reflect the spirit of the docklands. To add some authenticity, the complex features robust, warehouse-style materials, including multi-brickwork and panels, giving off a handcrafted vibe. The façades are peppered with huge floor-to-ceiling windows that flood the living areas with an abundance of natural light and provide breathtaking views of the waterways. In addition, Royal Albert Wharf provides spacious balconies with glass balustrades and 180-degree views of the river.
Royal Albert Wharf features beautifully-landscaped green spaces and riverside walks to enjoy the picturesque location and long strolls along the Thames. In addition, the complex includes a multi-use community space and RAW Labs, a creative arts hub that hosts art-related events and workshops. The plan also involves bringing a series of cafés, shops, and even a gym. In addition, Royal Albert Wharf is served by a premium concierge, who offers a warm welcome to all residents and guests. The complex includes secure cycle storage facilities.
Royal Albert Wharf offers a diverse collection of one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments. The units come with spacious balconies, most of which offer stunning river views. The open-plan layouts maximise the available space, while the large full-height windows, coupled with the interiors’ light colour palette, bathe the living areas in an abundance of natural light. For maximum comfort, all homes are equipped with an underfloor heating system that keeps your feet warm no matter the weather.
The Manhattan kitchens feature elegant cabinets with a high gloss white finish and a top-notch collection of Bosch appliances that include an integrated oven, a four-zone ceramic hob, an integrated dishwasher, and a washer-dryer.
