Oxley’s Riverscape offers waterfront living in London’s revitalised Royal Docks

Royal Docks, located in the Newham borough in East London, has played a prominent role in the city’s trade history. Comprising three docks along the River Thames — Royal Victoria Dock, Royal Albert Dock and Royal King George V Dock — it was the world’s largest enclosed docks by the 1920s.

As the cargo industry advanced towards much larger container ships that were unable to travel upriver, Royal Docks’ function as a commerce hub faded, with the docks finally closing in the 1980s. Over the last decade, the area has undergone massive transformation as one of London’s biggest regeneration projects.

In 2014, Oxley Holdings, together with Ballymore, embarked on the development of the Royal Wharf township at Royal Docks. Comprising 3,385 residential units and approximately 11,000 sq m (118,403 sq ft) of commercial space, the waterfront estate was completed in 2020 and is now home to an estimated community of 10,000.

As Royal Docks continues to evolve as one of London’s most exciting, up-andcoming areas, Oxley and Ballymore are now bringing Riverscape, a new development adjacent to Royal Wharf to Singapore buyers. Riverscape will be launched for sale here in November at prices starting from GBP399,950 ($737,454).

Best of both worlds

At Riverscape, residents can enjoy the best of both worlds — well-connected urban living as well as a serene riverside setting filled with greenery.

The development fronts the River Thames, nestled between Royal Wharf and Lyle Park. Its location, combined with the curvature of the river, offers beautiful uninterrupted views of green parkland, the river and the skyline of nearby Canary Wharf.

Oxley and Ballymore have made landscaping and greenery a core feature of the development. Besides having access to Lyle Park, residents will also enjoy over 5,500 sq m of open spaces, courtyards and tree-lined walkways.

Connectivity will not be an issue at Riverscape, with two Docklands Light Railway (DLR) stations — West Silvertown and Pontoon Dock — located nearby. An upcoming Crossrail station opening at Custom House, less than a 10-minute walk from Riverscape, will offer access to Heathrow Airport in just 44 minutes and to London’s West End in 20 minutes.

Residents will also be able to catch a ferry to the city centre. The Royal Wharf Pier, located just a stone’s throw away from Riverscape, offers ferry services along the Thames and 23 pier stops are available, including Canary Wharf, London Bridge City and Westminster.

In addition, Riverscape is near London City Airport, which is reachable within minutes by car or DLR.

Meticulous design

Riverscape comprises 769 units spread across 10 residential blocks. Apartments encompass one-, two- and three-bedroom units, with sizes ranging between 549 sq ft and 1,214 sq ft.

Designed by Glenn Howells Architects, the apartments feature panoramic picture windows, allowing residents to fully enjoy the stunning views of the river. The open-plan layout of the units promises a spacious home filled with plenty of natural light.

The units were designed with versatility in mind, offering a choice of flexible day rooms, large outside balconies or enclosed balconies. Residents can choose the space best-suited to their purposes, be it as a home office, outdoor dining area, an art studio or much more.

Meticulous care has also been put into Riverscape’s interior design, which was crafted by Jaki Amos, from renowned design studio Amos & Amos. Aiming for a classic, contemporary aesthetic, Amos has incorporated materials such as framed timber and fluted glass for kitchen cabinetry, as well brushed gold brassware, lending a sophisticated touch.

Residents at Riverscape will have access to a range of amenities right at their doorstep, including 24-hour concierge service and a dedicated estate management team. They will also be able enjoy The Sky Lounge, which is exclusive to residents. Located on the 16th floor, The Sky Lounge is a multipurpose space for residents to work, host meetings or have social events while enjoying stunning panoramic views.

As part of the established Royal Wharf township, Riverscape residents will also get membership to The Clubhouse, which offers a gym, spa and swimming pool. Shops and other amenities are also easily accessible at Royal Wharf’s main square and high street.

Primed for growth

With its excellent connectivity, extensive amenities and fast-growing community, Riverscape is poised to appreciate in value. According to property consultancy JLL, home prices in Royal Docks may jump by 30% over the next five years to the end of 2026, outperforming London, where home prices are expected to gain 25% over the same period.

In addition, rental rates are forecast to grow by an average of 3.2% per annum between 2022 and 2026, JLL says.
