New homes at the much-anticipated next phase of residential development at Wapping Wharf will be released to the market this September.
A limited number were available in the spring to purchasers who had already registered their interest to buy, with 26 homes now under offer and the main public launch to follow.
The new development will retain the same unique gritty, dockside character as its first phase and will remain in keeping with the historic surrounding area. Many apartments have balconies overlooking the new street scenes or internal garden courtyards. Airy vaulted ceilings and terraces feature in many of the top floor apartments.
Designed by Alec French, the architects responsible for the previous homes at Wapping Wharf, the one, two and three-bed apartments and penthouses will be fitted out to a high standard throughout, housed within two six-storey buildings to be called Abel Yard and Hope Quay. The restored early 19th century, Grade II listed Gaol Gate will become a focal point for the development, providing a new public entrance to Wapping Wharf, opening onto a square, flanked by residents' communal gardens.
Most of the apartments will be offered for sale on the open market, with 93 being sold to Sovereign Housing Association, 49 of which will be shared ownership housing and the remainder for private rent. After completion of these first 256 new homes, a further 81 affordable homes will be constructed separately as part of phase two.
Construction work on the new apartments is well underway and is expected to complete in 2020.
