Homes & Property gives “the lowdown” on Surrey Quays
Located in the heart of the massive regeneration in Surrey Quays, Barratt London’s Redwood Park development is one of the latest additions to the second wave of redevelopment in the area. London Evening Standard property correspondent Anthea Masey sheds light onto the area, highlighting the “striking architecture” and the “fast links to Canary Wharf”.
Formerly a bustling hub, Surrey Commercial Dock – as Surrey Quays was once called – eventually became “abandoned and forgotten for over a decade”. A 15-year major regeneration followed, building “5,500 new homes”, and improvements to housing and the regeneration of the area are still in full swing. Barratt London initially began developing in Surrey Quays with one of “the most popular developments”, Maple Quays. The launch of Redwood Park followed in 2013 as part of the second wave of regeneration.
Along with a new home in the historical area, residents at Redwood Park the opportunity to enjoy a new town centre planned for the area, a leisure park, a new library and fantastic travel connections, along with an on-site doctors’ surgery. This Zone 2 location is near Canada Water on the Jubilee line, “one stop from Canary Wharf”, and “Surrey Quays, Canada Water and Rotherhithe stations are on the overground”.
Redwood Park in Rotherhithe offers the intimacy of a safe residential community with the deep-rooted vibe of an old port town. There are plenty of things to see and enjoy, from the neighbouring Russia Dock Woodland and Bermondsey Street’s shops, bars and cafés to Borough Market and the West End.
Completing in Christmas 2015, Redwood Park has become a stylish and popular place to live. The development features a concierge, residents’ fitness suite and an on-site health centre. Redwood Park is a collection of 212 stylish new one-bedroom suite, one, two and three-bedroom apartments.
