Take the feel-good journey to work from Lombard Wharf


The London Evening standard ask “what’s not to like?” about this riverfront development.

London Evening Standard’s property correspondent, Ginetta Vedrickas, looks at how buying at Barratt London’s riverfront development - Lombard Wharf could help you “take the feel-good journey to work”.

Vedrickas asks readers “are you fed up with a punishing daily Tube journey?” If your answer is yes, then “buy a home near one of London’s piers” to “take a relaxed river boat ride to work”. She notes that despite other global cities frequently using their rivers for local transport that the Thames Clipper and River Bus services are “often underused” in London.

Lombard Wharf is near Plantation Wharf Pier, which opened last year to create an “extra stop for the River Bus which runs between Putney and Blackfriars”. The development offers “135 one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments and penthouses with wraparound balconies – so you can watch Thames Clipper services approach”. Residents at Lombard Wharf can also “hop aboard MBNA Thames Clippers’ high speed boats” from Plantation Wharf Pier, which “take 37 minutes into London Bridge City Pier offering guaranteed seating for 150 passengers”.

Situated on the banks of the River Thames, Lombard Wharf’s twisting designed building, offers panoramic river views. Located adjacent to the Cremorne Bridge on the Thames Waterfront and across the bridge from Chelsea Harbour, Lombard Wharf is just a short walk from Battersea Park’s 200 acre green space, Battersea Village Square and a number of independent shops and cafés.
