Queen's Wharf - the first joint venture between award-winning developers Mount Anvil and FABRICA by A2Dominion - will launch on 16th October, propelling forward the extensive investment in the regeneration of Hammersmith.
Located next to the Grade II Listed Hammersmith Bridge on a much coveted stretch of unspoilt Thames riverside, Queen's Wharf will incorporate the redevelopment of the world-renowned Riverside Studios – the original home of Doctor Who and a cornerstone of English artistic, cultural and television heritage. Three brand new, state-of-the-art studios will be re-provided, together with a cinema, café and restaurant, offering residents a cultural feast on their doorstep.
A quintessentially British collection of 165 studio, one, two and three-bedroom apartments, the development will be arranged across more than 100 metres of uninterrupted river frontage, offering breathtaking views of the Surrey Bend – the perfect place to watch the world-famous varsity boat race.
Rosie Nesbitt, Group Director of Sales and Marketing at FABRICA, comments: “We are thrilled to be delivering 165 beautifully designed homes in this property hotspot alongside the River Thames and Hammersmith Bridge. Queen’s Wharf gives buyers a unique opportunity to purchase a home that celebrates London’s heritage without sacrificing contemporary comforts.”
Overseen by Assael Architects, who were recently named ‘Architect of the Year’ at The Sunday Times’ British Homes Awards, Queen’s Wharf is characterised by a gentle curve in its exterior, intended to carefully complement its surroundings and celebrate its riverside setting. Furthermore, at just eight storeys, the development will integrate naturally into the community.
With interiors designed by world-renowned WISH London, each home has been carefully considered to maximise natural light and the remarkable panoramas of the river. The design is inspired by British heritage and character, referencing period features while embracing contemporary styling and detailing. This juxtaposition of classic with modern has been designed to reflect Queen’s Wharf’s contemporary architecture and its historic setting.
Available in two neutral colour palettes, the open plan kitchens come complete with integrated Miele appliances, culminating in a sleek finish that provides the perfect stage for home entertaining. Generously proportioned bedrooms provide a sanctuary away from the pace of city life, many with floor to ceiling windows, taking advantage of the exceptional views.
Queen’s Wharf also offers a dedicated onsite 24 hour concierge, a rooftop terrace with sweeping views for the exclusive use of residents, and tranquil podium gardens. A brand new riverside walkway is being created, finally linking Hammersmith Bridge and the Thames Path.
Residents can enjoy Hammersmith’s established network of bars, restaurants and cafes, and with Hammersmith Underground Station just five minutes’ walk away, are easily connected to London’s hottest shopping and cultural districts. Riverside walks are available from the front door as well as cycle rides along the Thames towpath to Chiswick, Richmond and even Hampton Court. With a multitude of boat clubs alongside the river, water enthusiasts are perfectly placed to enjoy competitive racing or light sculling before work or at weekends.
Mark Collins, Chairman of Residential at CBRE UK commented:
“Through combining Queen’s Wharf’s unique central location, with its river fronting façade, this development is set to appeal right across the spectrum.”
He adds: “As we continue to recognise purchasers looking for high quality new-build development within this popular area of London, Queen’s Wharf will undoubtedly appeal to those looking to further benefit from the area’s trend of positive price performance and robust buyer demand.”
Prices at Queen’s Wharf start from £540,000 for a studio apartment with first completions scheduled in 2017.
The new Riverside Studios will reopen in 2017 and will continue to be a centre for theatre, television and cinema, as well as broader arts organisations from around Britain.
