London Dock launches First Time Buyer homes

St George (a proud member of the Berkeley Group), in partnership with the London Borough of Tower Hamlets, is supporting First Time Buyers, living or working in the area, with the launch of a collection of one- and two-bedroom apartments at London Dock – one of the Capital’s most exciting central London neighbourhoods for all to enjoy.

These beautifully designed homes offered at a discount below market value will be launched through two weekends, the 6th-7th of April, and the 13th-14th of April.

The homes are part of Saffron Wharf, the latest phase of London Dock, and will be ready to move into Autumn 2024.

New residents will enjoy access to over 7.5 acres of landscaped open space and private gardens in addition to a range of hotel-style residents’ only facilities in The Club. These premium amenities include a Technogym equipped gym, a 25-metre heated pool and spa – which features a sauna, steam room and Jacuzzi – squash court, cinema room, virtual golf suite, and 24-hour concierge.

London Dock is a vibrant and growing 15-acre mixed-use central London neighbourhood, located near to The City and key London landmarks such as the Tower of London, the iconic Tower Bridge and stretch of the River Thames. Designed by renowned architects Patel Taylor, the transformation of London Dock introduces 1,800 homes and award-winning public spaces and gardens by Elite Landscaping, set within flourishing squares and picturesque boulevards.

The centrepiece of the development, Gauging Square, features a spectacular dynamic water feature, surrounded by new bars, eateries and cultural spaces offering a relaxed, cosmopolitan lifestyle that’s much sought after in the busy capital. Offerings include: Slurp Noodles, Urban Baristas, Motherdough, artisan champagne restaurant called Champagne Route and City Pharmacy.

Demand in Wapping | Wapping’s rich history and prime riverside location – combined with excellent connectivity – has sparked a resurgence for city living. According to property agents CBRE (using ONS data), house prices in the Tower Hamlets have increased by 60% over the past 10 years, outperforming other prime areas in London over the same period. CBRE forecast rents to grow by 16.3% in London over the next five years, signifying continued demand for city living and strong investment credentials. This post-pandemic resurgence of the city is further cemented by Benham and Reeves whose research shows that rental demand and enquiries rose by 5% during Q4 2020 and have maintained momentum over the course of the last two years, with enquiries up 12% in Q2 2023.

Wapping is well-connected across the capital, and London Dock’s prime position is only a short walk from Tower Hill and Aldgate East tube stations, alongside the Elizabeth Line accessible via Whitechapel.
