From a distance, the building presents a distinctive profile, forming a way finding feature from Tower Bridge and the nearby River Thames. The striking glass façade complements the masonry context of the Tower of London and its architecture to the west, whilst the framed masonry element makes reference to the larger scale architecture of Canary Wharf and its towers to the east."

"Cashmere Wharf at London Dock is a truly unique offering for the capital. The fantastic amenities, high quality accommodation and outstanding public realm marries with the heritage and history of the surrounding area to create a new destination that emanates vibrancy and culture. There are few destinations that offer all this as well as easy access to the rest of London, but residents at London Dock can benefit from fast, direct transport links to the City, Canary Wharf and beyond.
"Cashmere Wharf will be the pinnacle of London Dock, sitting at the heart of the outstanding public realm, adjacent to Gauging Square. In addition to the quality specification and design, the building's height will provide residents with iconic views east to Canary Wharf, south west to the River Thames and north to the City."
Situated in a prime location within a short walk of Zone 1 transport connections from Tower Hill and Aldgate, residents of London Dock are well-positioned to benefit from swift access across the whole of London. The Elizabeth Line (Crossrail) will also serve nearby Whitechapel, further opening up access to the wider Capital.
At the heart of London Dock is the Grade-II listed Pennington Street Warehouse which once stored many high-value goods imported into the docks. It will be the commercial centre of the development, brought to life with an eclectic mix of shops, restaurants and offices.
The first phase of London Dock was completed in December 2016, with residents moving into their new homes in Clipper Wharf and the first public space opened. This included the unveiling of Trading Words; a public art installation inspired by the historic lists of goods imported and exported via London over the past 400 years. Once complete, Trading Words will span the full length of the development and contain over 1,000 words.
Cashmere Wharf offers Manhattan, one, two and three bedroom apartments, prices from £685,000.
