Abbey Quay is a £350 million residential-led mixed-use development in Barking, East London IG11.

The development will provide 1,089 new homes of mixed tenure alongside retail, commercial and leisure facilities on the 6-acre Abbey Retail Park site.

New Build Homes
Abbey Quay will deliver 1,089 new homes comprising 737 private sale 1, 2 and 3-bedroom apartments and penthouses and 352 (35% of all habitable rooms) provided as affordable housing including affordable rent, shared ownership and discount market-sale tenures.

The apartments will be situated across 13 residential blocks split across three buildings, ranging from seven to 29 storeys.

The second phase of the development was launched in September 2023. This includes Edmunds Rise, Jasper Wharf and Edward Point.

Dunstan Place and Erken Plaza were the first two apartment buildings to be built and launched in phase one of the development. The new homes in the first phase were fully sold out in 2023.

The buildings combine expanses of glazing with brick facades of contrasting colour with features including recessed and projecting balconies; balustrades designed as artwork to reflect the heritage of the local area; and public artwork commissioned by local artist Susanna Wallis in the form of large-scale murals etched into the brickwork of building facades, the illustrations making reference to Barking history.

The residential buildings are arranged around a pair of large communal landscaped podium gardens for occupants to utilise.

Masterplanned and designed by architectural practice Broadway Malyan, ‘Abbey Quays’ consists of striking contemporary buildings including a reception-hub and pavilion building, designed around the riverfront and new public and communal spaces.

- 22,281 sq ft of commercial/leisure space, including a new riverside pub/restaurant
- 6,857 sqft Max Whitlock MBE athletes training centre/gym
- 11,528 sqft of employment space
- 5,059 sqft of community space, including a community hall for local community events and children’s parties
- community-hub/reception for accepting/meeting deliveries/visitors for residents. The scheme is located within a new high-quality public realm that includes public artwork, landscaping, a new riverside walkway and a waterside plaza with a spectacular rill water feature.


Phase 1 was sold out in Summer 2023.

In Tudor times the site was a quay servicing the adjacent Barking Abbey and village. By the 19th century, it was a vibrant fishing village, becoming an industrial zone during the Victorian era and thereafter. The retail park was built by the Estates & Agency Group during the 1980s providing retail warehouse units and parking.
