Introducing Blackwall and the Blackwall Reach Development

Blackwall used to be an industrial area of London with excellent links to the Docks but today the area is being transformed. Many of the former warehouses and commercial buildings are being redeveloped to cope with changing demographics and trends, helping to make living in Blackwall an exciting and attractive proposition for Londoners.

Prior to the new developments in Blackwall the area had a declining residential population with many choosing to get away from the growing business districts and instead moving to commuter towns on the outskirts of London. One of the best things about Blackwall is its excellent transport links with the Blackwall DLR station providing easy access to popular commercial and social areas of London such as the City, Stratford, Kings Cross, Covent Garden and Oxford Street.

Today, thanks to the regeneration projects which started in the late 1980s, Blackwall is a thriving area once again attracting a variety of new residents and business owners looking to take up the option to buy or rent some of the fantastic new properties in a prime London location.

What’s so great about living in Blackwall?

Part of the appeal of the former Blackwall area was that it had a real sense of local community with independent stores and green spaces for children to play in. Over time that spirit disappeared but one of the main aims of the new Blackwall Reach development is to restore the local community spirit with contemporary, eco-friendly apartments with almost immediate access to the Blackwall DLR, flexible winter gardens and open spaces where residents can meet, play and relax.

The new Blackwall Reach development is part of a £300 million project aimed at transforming what is already one of London’s most exciting areas with a collection of spectacular properties in this prime location just a short distance from one of London’s most prominent locations, Canary Wharf. 

The new development is part of a five-stage process that will see a wealth of new properties to buy in Blackwall along with shops, improved transport links, community facilities and lush open spaces.

The first phase has seen the development of 99 properties and a new primary school on Woolmore Street, close to a new mosque and community centre. The second stage at Station Square involves the creation of a total of 242 properties made up of one, two and three-bedroom apartments and penthouses in what is set to be a stunning 24-storey tower, located in the heart of one of Europe's most dynamic regeneration schemes with views out across the River Thames and Canary Wharf.

The next phase of the project will see 268 new homes built around a beautiful park in what will become known as Parkside West. Residents who take up the new properties in this part of Blackwall Reach will have excellent views across and access to the revitalised Millennium Green in the heart of the new development, a green space where residents can relax and socialise away from the hustle and bustle of central London.

Parkside East will be the fourth stage in the development process on the opposite side of Millennium Green, running parallel to Robin Hood Lane and opposite the new Woolmore Primary School. This development will complete the area’s transformation and are highly likely to become some of the most sought after new developments in London.

As a part of the project residents will have almost instant access to the Republic offices, retail and gym, which is set to be fully completed and open by 2021; while plans are also in place for the future development of Blackwall Heights, the area that will soon be to the side of Station Square.

About the new Blackwall Reach development

All of the new apartments and penthouses to buy in Blackwall Reach are set to be designed to the very highest and most modern of standards.

Every property in the luxurious new development will have a large spacious kitchen with the latest appliances, many will have the latest and most stylish bathroom suites with heated towel rails, underfloor heating, wooden flooring and sliding wardrobes while the winter garden space in the development have been designed to provide more flexibility than a balcony by offering an opportunity to bring the outside in.

Communal areas within the new Blackwall Reach development will have a concierge area, lifts to all floors in the building, post boxes, cycle storage area, secure entry and more to ensure that living in Blackwall Reach is every bit as stress-free and luxurious as you might imagine.

With areas, such as Canary Wharf and the glittering West End right on the doorstep combined with excellent transport links, buying a property in Blackwall makes sense to so many people from single professionals to young families and even students living in London.

It is set to be one of the largest new developments in London creating 1,575 new homes on a 20-acre site right beside the Blackwall DLR station and less than a mile away from the hustle and bustle of the Canary Wharf business district.  

Why move to Blackwall Reach?

Blackwall Reach is set to be one of London’s most sought after developments when the first phase of the project is finally completed in early 2019.

If the super-modern features in every apartment and penthouse aren’t enough, the views over Canary Wharf and the River Thames will certainly appeal to those who love looking out across the city on a sunny evening.

The proximity to Canary Wharf and shopping areas are one key factor, enabling those working in the financial and business districts of London to get to and from work in a matter of minutes and taking sizable amounts of time off their daily commutes.

For those who enjoy live entertainment, Blackwall Reach is a 20-minute bus journey away from the O2 and there is an abundance of highly-rated riverside restaurants to choose from when entertaining or looking for somewhere to go for a special meal cooked by leading chefs.

Then there are the excellent transport links with the Blackwall Reach DLR station within sight of the Blackwall Reach development, providing an Overground rail service towards London City Airport in the east and Bank in the west. From there you can change for the Underground and venture towards any of London’s leading hotspots, landmarks and social areas or to get to Heathrow Airport or any of the leading railway stations.
