About Royal Wharf
Royal Wharf is an exciting mixed development located in East London’s Royal Docks, with a massive land size of 40-acre. Oxley Holdings plan to develop this area into 3,385 homes, which consist of residential units, commercial, retail, leisure and educational facilities, creating an entirely new and vibrant district for London. Upon completion of this massive project, it is estimated that around 10,000 people will live in the Royal Wharf Area. It is the largest London development opportunity to come to market since Battersea Power Station. The ambition at Royal Wharf is to create London’s next great estate, a successor to the districts that have for centuries given the capital its world-famous character. The development of Royal Wharf will led by Oxley Holdings Limited – a SGX listed developer based in Singapore. The master plan and buildings at Royal Wharf have been designed by an internationally renowned team of designers led by Glenn Howells Architect.
Royal Wharf London is strategically located near to an upcoming Crossrail station, which will be completed in 2018. With this Crossrail station, Royal Wharf is merely 8 mins to key location in Zone 1, bring it closer to Prime Central London. It is also well served by international connections from London City Airport and boat links from a proposed brand new pier. Since the transformation of Canary Wharf into one of Europe’s most powerful business districts, London’s centre of gravity has been moving east, a shift recently consolidated with success of the 2012 Olympics. A brand new riverside district in the form of Royal Wharf will consolidate London’s dramatic east-facing reinvention.
Royal Wharf offers a blank canvas to create something very special for London. It has over 500m of river frontage with a Crossrail station 1km away. Royal Wharf has planning consent already in place for a 363,000 sqm development, with 3,385 homes, a new school, shops, offices and riverside restaurants, catering for a population that is estimated to reach 10,000 by completion. Royal Wharf offers potential to become the new “great estate” for London. The current planning permission, which means the development is “ready-to-go”, includes a riverside walkway, new streets connecting parks and squares, as well as new apartment buildings with views of the River Thames, terraced mansion blocks offering generous family sized apartments and a range of townhouses, and private parking.

Unlike many of its central London cousins, however, Royal Wharf has the benefit of the immediate proximity of the widening river Thames. There is nothing else in the capital quite like the big skies and breathtaking views that are found out towards the river’s east. The change in the context informs a key architectural difference, that whereas the original Georgian squares tended to be built to the front of their surrounding properties, the squares of Royal Wharf are accessed from the back garden, creating a private space for those who neighbour them, a green enclosure to complement the blue of the water. Royal Wharf is jointly developed by Oxley & Ballymore UK – a reputable developer who has developed numerous projects in London which include Embassy Gardens, London City Island, West Hampstead Square and etc. View Royal Wharf London Location
The Architecture of Fitness
Lord’s Cricket Ground
The team’s first sports project was the ground-breaking indoor cricket school at Lord’s Cricket Ground. This simple building was the first indoor facility to use natural light to illuminate the field. An ideal lighting solution – and one that vastly reduced both running costs and environmental impact.
Olympic Water Polo Arena
The development of the London Olympic Park brought an especially high-profile commission when David Morley Architects were appointed to create the Water Polo Arena. This huge 5,000-capacity venue was praised – perhaps most of all by audiences themselves – for its sense of soul and personality.
The Hurlingham Club
David Morley Architects won an invited competition in 2008 to design a state-of-the-art facility.
The resulting scheme comprised a 30m pool, a children’s pool, a changing room building and a cafe, integrated sensitively into the picturesque landscaped grounds of the Club.
The Royal Parks
The team has also delivered five projects for the Royal Parks. Among these is the master plan for sport at Regent’s Park and Primrose Hill. This project – Regent’s Park is Grade I listed – centres around The Hub, an elegant reinvention of the traditional sports pavilion.
These principles – of analysing what is most appropriate, and ensuring that each design balances the needs of all its different users – are central to David Morley’s work at Royal Wharf.
