Emery Wharf, A London City Development to be Launched in Singapore
St George, London’s leading residential developer, is launching Emery Wharf, the highly anticipated new homes to be released at London Dock in Wapping.
Emery Wharf is centrally located in the heart of London, close to the iconic Tower Bridge over the River Thames, the historic Tower of London, St Katharine Docks and the City. Situated in a prime location which is within a short walk of zone 1 transport connections from Tower Hill and Aldgate, residents are well-positioned to benefit from swift access across the whole of London. Crossrail will also serve nearby Whitechapel district. It is at the entrance to the London Dock development and features a striking brick façade.
This district has seen historic working docks and more recently, News International print works, and has transformed into a desirable, modern neighbourhood.
Designed to reflect the trading heritage of the docks in both architecture and interior design, Emery Wharf features unique mid-century-inspired modern specifications such as open plan kitchens finished with integrated black appliances, and bathrooms with black framed bath and shower screens, reflecting the site’s historic use as a mercantile hub.
Comprising one bedroom Manhattan, as well as one, two and three bedroom apartments, Emery Wharf has designed a new addition to London Dock – the Manhattan suite. It efficiently combines open plan living and bedroom spaces, with a fully fitted kitchen, shower room and ample storage space.
Residents will be able to enjoy exclusive access to a private entrance courtyard, as well as two private roof gardens, offering outdoor spaces for relaxing or entertaining against a backdrop of spectacular views towards the City. They will also have exclusive access to facilities including a wifi enabled lounge, state-of-the-art gymnasium and swimming pool, complete with sauna, steam room and Jacuzzi, a squash court, private screening room, virtual golf suite and 24-hour concierge.
Neil Bowron, Sales & Marketing Director, St George City commented, “Emery Wharf combines new and old, capturing the history of the site and combining it with leading design from Patel Taylor. This latest phase of London Dock in close proximity to the City will offer a range of new homes at a range of prices to suit a variety of buyers.”
The first phase of London Dock was completed in December 2016. Residents are moving into their new homes in Clipper Wharf and the first of 6.5 acres of public space has 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.
Designed by Patel Taylor
Emery Wharf—named after the dark granular Emery mineral which was one of the goods imported—is designed by renowned architects, Patel Taylor.
Andrew Taylor, Director, Patel Taylor said, “Emery Wharf is the latest addition to the collection of unique buildings at London Dock. Taking inspiration from the historic Pennington Street Warehouse, this prominent new brick building confidently establishes new street edges and spaces of arrival through a considered form of recognisable and timeless materials.”
Six acres of new public space is being created across London Dock, including landscaped promenades, water gardens and Gauging Square, a grand piazza animated by a choreographed water feature.
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.
