Building Area: Mixed-use residential luxury tower blocks, 764 residential units
Construction Value: £150m
Project Period: 2016 – 2021
Bond Bryan were commissioned to take a luxurious planning-approved, mixed-use and residential scheme through to completion for Berkeley Homes. The scheme features the creation and delivery of 6 different luxury tower blocks on the Thames Riverside in Woolwich, with three of them being 22 storeys in height and the others being 20, 18 and 16 storeys.
It is envisaged that, upon the successful completion of these opening phases, more lavish dwellings will be added to the Woolwich Riverside plot as part of the client’s masterplan for the 0.914 hectare site. In total, the site will consist of 764 high-end apartments with a large amount of soft and hard landscaping taking place to deliver roof gardens and terraces, as well as communal green spaces and courtyards around the outside of the towers. The hard landscaping will also see ample car parking spaces created.
The ground floor of each block will be dedicated to a commercial outlet – with high-end retailers, cafés and restaurants, as well as a luxury spa and gymnasium – to provide excellent facilities, close to home, for the residents in the tower blocks.
Initially, the scheme will commence with the erection of Towers 1 and 4, with the other 4 towers to be created in two more phases following the successful delivery of the first phase.
The existing building is to be fully refurbished with the operational accommodation and appliance bays being retained at ground floor level.
Factory 2050 is the UK’s first fully reconfigurable assembly and component manufacturing facility for collaborative research.
