Final building at 40-acre new riverside town Royal Wharf tops out

December 2019

Ballymore and Oxley have celebrated a landmark moment as the final, and tallest, residential building at Royal Wharf officially topped out. The major urban regeneration scheme, which will ultimately deliver 3,385 new homes, represents a new town for east London, complete with health centre, pharmacy, primary school, nursery, community centre, and a high street and market square with 60 retail units. The masterplan has been designed by Glenn Howells Architects.

Over 2,833 homes have been handed over to date, and when complete in 2020, the project will have been delivered at pace in an ambitious timeframe of over five years. The development has seen over 17,000 operatives inducted on site, with 25% local labour.

Sean Mulryan, Chairman and Group Chief Executive of Ballymore commented, “At Royal Wharf, we’ve delivered thousands of new high-quality private and affordable homes with incredible haste. When we complete next year, there’ll be 3,385 incredible homes, right by the river, with almost 50% open space and fantastic public amenities – not just for our residents, but also for our wider community in Newham.”
