Homes in West Quay, the newest riverside neighbourhood at Royal Arsenal Riverside, are going on sale for the first time on Saturday 27 April. Prospective buyers will be able to explore the range of contemporary one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments in Navigator Wharf, with spectacular views towards the River Thames and over Royal Arsenal's beautifully landscaped Maribor Park or private gardens to choose from.
Designed in harmony with the waterfront, the West Quay neighbourhood is a distinctive addition to Royal Arsenal Riverside and each building has its own characteristics. The gold tones in Navigator Wharf's exterior enhance its form and make a beautiful statement, especially when caught by the sun - something every resident can enjoy thanks to the balconies and terraces at every apartment.
The design of the entire West Quay neighbourhood is intended to maximise views towards the river. Many Navigator Wharf residents will have splendid views of the riverfront or Maribor Park, a new four-acre space boasting beautifully landscaping, lush waterways and a sensory garden which brings a vision of the English countryside to the edge of the capital.
Royal Arsenal Riverside has a rich military past as a former munitions site dating to the 17th century and is a stunning example of how modern-day architecture can complement heritage buildings. Lyndon Nunn, sales director at Berkeley, comments: "Our vision for Royal Arsenal was to create a place which married a rich history with modern character, and Navigator Wharf is the next phase of this exciting story. Its unique gold design and the spectacular views towards the Thames and Maribor Park mark it as a truly special home before you've even set foot indoors."
Berkeley's attention to detail carries on with simple but elegant interiors. There are no more than eight apartments to any floor and inside, open-plan layouts give way to impressive views - many towards the river. Simple, monolithic forms and textured materials maximise space and sunlight.
Textured timber finishes and reflective surfaces create light-filled, spacious interiors that are elegant and welcoming. Quality and style are reflected in the detailing of every apartment - quartz stone worktops, mirrored splashbacks and integrated Siemens appliances are all included. Bathrooms boast sheer white and chrome-effect fixtures and fittings to provide a truly modern aesthetic, while balconies and terraces with glass balustrades offer an ideal setting for hosting al fresco meals or admiring the view.
West Quay residents gain exclusive access to private gardens, created for young and old to appreciate all year round. These feature a specially designed play area, a private courtyard and a wide variety of native plants. They also have the use of The Waterside Club, which combines a 20m pool, sauna and steam room, treatment room and gym. Additional benefits include a cinema room and 24-hour concierge service.
Royal Arsenal Riverside has a cosmopolitan and vibrant nature. Its forthcoming Creative District - equal in size to London's South Bank and just as ambitious - will see new theatres and artists' studios established on the site, showcasing a variety of arts and entertainment. The on-site Elizabeth Line (Crossrail) station will add to the list of enviable transport links in the area - including the DLR, National Rail and on-site Thames Clipper pier - and allow residents to reach central London in 20 minutes and Canary Wharf in just eight.
Prices start at £480,000 for a one-bedroom home with an open-plan kitchen, living and dining area and double aspect bedroom. Lyndon Nunn continues: "The much-anticipated Crossrail opening will only boost Woolwich's desirability as the centre of London is brought within only 20 minutes. As prices in the area continue to rise, now is the time to buy at this truly spectacular riverfront destination."
Royal Arsenal Riverside's sales and marketing suite is open from 10am to 6pm. It is at No. 2 Duke of Wellington Avenue, Woolwich, London, SE18 6FR - there, interested buyers can talk to a member of the Berkeley team, view the Navigator Wharf show apartment and see the wider development.
