Description of Town Quay Wharf

Town Quay Wharf is a £50 million residential-led mixed-use development by Weston Homes in Barking, East London IG11.

The development on Barking’s waterfront will offer 147 apartments and 1,000m2 of commercial space designed around a public plaza overlooking the Mill Pond and River Roding.

New Homes
Town Quay Wharf will provide 147 new 1, 2 and 3-bedroom apartments of mixed tenure, 1,000m2 of ground-floor commercial space, located in three new buildings designed around a public plaza overlooking the waterfront.

85 apartments are for private sale, with the balance comprising shared ownership and affordable rent homes.

PRP Architects have designed three striking buildings - an 11-storey and two 7-storey respectively, with pedestrian boulevards between them, opening onto the new public plaza on the waterfront.

The architecture was inspired by the adjacent mill and maritime buildings with pitched roofs with dormer balconies, industrial warehouse-style brick facades in contrasting colours, floor-to-ceiling windows, generously sized balconies and colonnaded raised ground floors.

Residents benefit from a resident’s-only podium garden with the apartments on the upper floors offering panoramic views over the Mill Pond or Abbey Green.

The scheme is complete with parking bays and cycle storage.

Commercial Units
On the ground floor of the buildings, there are food and beverage commercial units and workshops and artist’s studios, alongside entrance foyers for the apartments on the upper floors.

Location
The 5,630m2 development site off Abbey Road is situated on the River Roding about 9 miles from central London. The site is bordered by the River Roding, Mill Pond, and Old Granary building to the west, Abbey Road and the large green expanse of Abbey Green to the east, the Abbey Retail Park (South) development and existing Benedict's Wharf apartments to the north, and the Quayside House apartments to the south.
