Mount Anvil Launches Royal Docks West in Western Gateway, Royal Victoria Dock E16

05 May 2017

Knight Frank and leading London developer Mount Anvil have launched Royal Docks West – a 19-storey tower of 105 studio, one, two and three-bedroom homes (including 26 affordable homes), alongside retail space and a public landscaped garden on Western Gateway, Royal Victoria Dock, London Borough of Newham.

 
Located just three minutes from Custom House DLR station, where Crossrail is anticipated to begin service in December 2018, Royal Docks West offers an exceptional opportunity to buy into the heart of the £3.7 billion regeneration area at the Royal Docks.
 
Regeneration 
 
Following the success of the 2012 Olympic Games and the worldwide visibility of the beautiful Olympic Park, Newham has never looked back. This year, Newham was at the top of the list of London areas with the fastest price growth, with prices increasing by an average of 14% year on year. 
 
Buyers have been attracted by the outstanding sporting facilities but also by the amount of green space and the prospect of further regeneration, particularly in the Royal Docks. 
 
Once the bustling hub of London’s commercial life, the multitude of regeneration projects underway here will make the Royal Docks once again London’s centre of enterprise. These projects include:
 
London’s Floating Village at Royal Victoria Dock
Royal Albert Dock
Silvertown Quays
 
The residences 
 
Designed by EPR, the celebrated British architecture firm marking its 70th anniversary this year, the simple yet richly textured, design of Royal Docks West picks up on the vernacular of Victorian docklands: brick, strong, and clean-lined. All apartments will have balconies from which residents can enjoy either water views or urban vistas towards Canary Wharf and the City. 
 
An intimate landscaped garden with abundant greenery will provide a tranquil space where local residents can relax and unwind.
 
Interiors 
 
Acclaimed interior architects Johnson Ribolla have created an interior design scheme inspired by the docks, where sea and land meet, mixing together light and dark elements for an exceptionally appealing finish. 
The kitchen and living areas have full-height windows, maximizing the light and the spectacular views. 
 
The bedrooms, with full height windows, are finished with plush carpeting and beautifully fitted wardrobes. 
Bathrooms have distinctive small format wall tiles.
 
Facilities 
 
  • 12 parking spaces are available under separate negotiation and there will also be two car club parking spaces available adjacent to the development. Each home comes with a free two-year car club membership 
  • 153 cycle storage places at ground level for residents’ use 
  • A 24 hour concierge service 
  • Landscaped garden 
 
Connectivity 
 
Already well connected by bus routes, the DLR, and the Emirates Air Line, Royal Docks West offers residents exceptionally simple and quick connections to the City and to the rest of London. 
 
From December 2018, when Crossrail service begins, residents will be just ten minutes from the City via Custom House station. Connections include: 
 
  • Liverpool Street – 10 minutes 
  • Stratford - 12 minutes 
  • London City Airport – 16 minutes 
  • Bond Street – 17 minutes 
  • Paddington – 20 minutes 
  • Heathrow Airport - 45 minutes 
 
Jon Hall, Sales Director, Mount Anvil, comments, “Royal Docks West offers the opportunity to be part of the extraordinary regeneration underway in the Royal Docks, but it’s the exceptional quality of life available here that will appeal to many buyers. Crossrail will ensure the new homes, commercial and retail space here will be an excellent investment, but it’s the range of sporting facilities and lifestyle amenities – and the proximity to London’s financial and business centres that will make this one of London’s most popular neighbourhoods. Early adopters are already buying in, demonstrated by the accelerating house prices rises.”
 
Prices at Royal Docks West start from £395,000 for a studio apartment; completions are scheduled from Winter 2018.
