The 22-meter-deep foundation piles have been completed which allowed for the pile rig machinery to be removed from the site. Next on the agenda is the pile caps, substructure, and ground floor.
Manufacturing has begun off-site on the first of the bathroom pods, which will be ready for installation as soon as the site is prepared.

The Botanist Launch
Mount Anvil has launched The Botanist within its Royal Eden Docks development, a joint venture partnership with Excel London.
Comprising 83 homes, the scheme will bring forward a range of studio, 1, 2 and 3-bedroom apartments with prices starting at £417,000.
The Botanist is a smart brick cladded residential scheme, designed by award-winning architects Skidmore, Owing & Merrill. It stands at 14 storeys high, with many apartments overlooking the central courtyard.
Jon Hall, group sales director at Mount Anvil, commented: “The Royal Docks regeneration programme is one of London’s biggest secrets, and it is going to transform this part of the East End. The Botanist, our latest phase to be launched at the Royal Eden Docks sits at the heart of this, where it will be surrounded by vibrant eateries and boutiques, along with a collective of entrepreneurial start-ups and more established businesses. Additionally, with the Excel on the doorstep, it will also be home to weekly world-class events and exhibitions.
“An integral part of the scheme is its links with nature, which is influential in the naming of The Botanist; with all apartments accessing private outdoor space, alongside blossoming rooftops and communal gardens. We want our buyers to love their home as much as the environment around them, and our amenities do just this, from the reflexology walkway through to the spa, sauna and pool along with the public realm that revolves around the development.
“With an area that is in its infancy, now is a great time to invest in a property, whether it’s your first home or a buy-to-let. It is one of London’s fastest-selling schemes in London.”
The kitchens in all studio and 1-bedroom apartments pair soft blues and greys with wood-effect flooring. Handleless wall cabinets in a timeless shaker style are complemented by low-level cabinets with black metal handles for an industrious edge. Meanwhile, kitchens in the two and three-bedroom apartments have a soft stone palette with lighter wood-effect flooring, alongside lacquered cabinets with vertical groove detailing that emphasise the height of the space and add texture. Each apartment also benefits from its own private balcony or terrace, inviting natural light to pour into the internal spaces while maximising the views of nature from the lush gardens.
Royal Eden Docks offers an array of amenities including a business lounge, 24-hour concierge, swimming pool, sauna and steam room, gym, spin studio, yoga studio and treatment room. The rooftop running track and reflexology walkway is the jewel in the crown offering panoramic views of the Royal Docks and city beyond. A cinema room and entertainment space are also available for hire.
Already well-connected by bus routes, the DLR and Emirates Air Line, the area offers fast and efficient journey times of just 10 minutes to Canary Wharf and a three-minute walk from Custom House station (a Crossrail station).
Prices start from £417,000 for a studio apartment.

New on Buildington
Mount Anvil, in partnership with ExCeL London, has secured support for phases two and three of its development on Western Gateway in Newham.
Royal Eden Docks adjoins phase one of the scheme, known as Royal Docks West – a 19-storey tower, which was launched successfully to market in spring 2017 and is now 90% sold.
The two new phases will deliver 796 new homes, amounting to a total of 901 units when combined with the homes delivered at Royal Docks West – and representing Mount Anvil’s largest ever scheme.
With architecture by SOM, the development will comprise a selection of studio, one, two and three-bedroom apartments, with 35% affordable housing (by habitable room).
Emma Foster, Development Director, Mount Anvil, commented: “Securing resolution to grant planning permission for phases two and three of Royal Eden Docks is a landmark moment for the site. The success of phase one demonstrated buyer demand for homes in this part of London, and in a period when the capital is gripped by an acute housing shortage, it’s important that we are working in partnership with the GLA to bolster the delivery of new homes for Londoners.
“Phase one brought substantial investment in the community and surrounding infrastructure, and we look forward to building on that investment with the construction of phases two and three.
“The Royal Docks is one of London’s last pockets of regeneration, and Mount Anvil is proud to be shaping the area for future generations, with the delivery of high quality, tenure-blind new homes and amenities, and helping to establish it as a sought-after place to live.”
Jeremy Rees, Chief Executive Officer at ExCeL London added: “I’m delighted with this latest planning success and our collaborative partnership with Mount Anvil. They’ve helped add significant value to our site and have delivered what they said they would. Their technical skills, strong political network and all-round decency make them excellent partners to work with.”
Construction at Royal Eden Docks will start in autumn 2019, and the scheme will launch to market in tandem. The construction programme is expected to take place over five and a half years, completing in 2024.
The project will create an estimated 147 new construction jobs every year and Mount Anvil is targeting at least 35% of those to go to local people. In addition, 30 apprenticeships and 10 work experience placements will be created over the duration of the development.
