London Evening Standard’s property correspondent delves into the Greenwich regeneration project.
Homes & Property columnist David Spittles discusses one of “London’s biggest regeneration projects” taking place in Greenwich, which involves Barratt London’s Enderby Wharf development. The regeneration – part of the Royal Greenwich Local Plan – features new transportation infrastructure, the development of new parks, open spaces, river walks, cycle ways and leisure centres. Often referred to as the Core Strategy, the plan provides a long-term vision for the Royal Borough and has detailed policies to help guide development.
A mix of 700 one-bedroom suites, one, two, three and four-bedroom apartments and duplexes stretching across 200 metres of river front, Enderby Wharf is appropriately located for the busy Londoner who wants easy access to unique boutiques, rustic pubs, bustling historic markets, the high-flying life of the City with its various bars and eateries, and the West End for entertainment.
Columbus is the latest phase of homes to launch at Enderby Wharf, featuring one, two and three-bedroom apartments each with a balcony or terrace. The launch of Columbus follows the hugely successful launches of Raleigh and Da Gama. With leisure facilities of its own, including a residents-only gym, Enderby Wharf will also be the site of an international cruise liner terminal, which Spittles credits as a “game changer for the neighbourhood”.
Barratt London is also restoring the on-site Enderby House, a Grade II listed building built in the 1830s, which will remain a central focus of the development, blending modern 21st century London living with Greenwich’s fishing and maritime legacy.
Gerald Thomas, Sales Director at Barratt London, comments, “Enderby Wharf epitomises modern London living. The development captures both the culture and history of Greenwich, whilst equally reflecting London’s modern style. With its enviable location, transport links to the economic hub Canary Wharf, and host of amenities, we are expecting a strong interest from both owner occupiers and investors. We look forward to Enderby Wharf playing its part in the broader Greenwich regeneration.”
