    Mariner’s Quarter, the finale of Royal Wharf

    At a media luncheon held today, Oxley announced the launch of Mariner’s Quarter, Royal Wharf’s final phase, with a target completion in 2019.

    Mariner’s Quarter, designed by DP Architects, the international acclaimed architect of many high-rise residential developments, is the flagship apartment blocks of Royal Wharf. Mariner’s Quarter itself will provide a total of 207 spacious homes across two buildings – Marco Polo and James Cook, forming the final phase of Royal Wharf.

    Within this new phase of properties are one, two and three bed apartments. The style of Mariner’s Quarter is distinct but complementary to the Georgian-inspired features which prevail throughout Royal Wharf. The pinnacle of the new release is the Marco Polo building, which features three vertically stacked building boxes, made striking by a subtle twist of each box.

    The new building’s façade and character has been designed to modify with the seasons, with adjustable louvered balcony screens to provide shade from the sun or wind whilst enabling residents to enjoy the outside space. The apartments have generously proportioned kitchen and living areas, floor to ceiling windows that offer an abundance of natural light and a balcony offering 360° view of the surroundings including the Thames Barrier and O2.

    Prices start from £395,000 for 1 bed.

    Royal Wharf will create an entirely new community, with a network of interconnecting streets leading onto town squares and gardens, including Sovereign Place – the development’s Marylebone style high street and focal point. Sovereign Place will provide independent cafes, shops, restaurants and bars for residents and locals alike and a 3,900 sqft Sainsbury’s at the heart of this retail offering.

    The two new buildings offer buyers a final opportunity to purchase in the highly acclaimed Royal Wharf development. Located on the riverfront, Royal Wharf is inspired by the energy of the River Thames and the area’s maritime heritage. Residents will be able to step out of their apartments onto the 500m of riverfront promenade or the development’s own 2.4 acre park and into the two riverside parks which border the development – Thames Barrier Park and Lyle Park. Residents of Mariner’s Quarter can benefit from the extensive open space and parkland at Royal Wharf, with 45% of the development devoted to green space. The 2.4 acre park forms the heart of the new neighbourhood and there will also be pocket parks, garden squares and tree lined avenues. Alongside the development’s 20,000 sqft David Morley designed leisure facility and the riverfront promenade, these open spaces will help to create a sense of wellbeing among residents.

    “Royal Wharf will be a destination in itself, for business, lifestyle, leisure and living,” explained Oxley’s Executive Chairman and CEO, Mr Ching Chiat Kwong. “It will be home to a diverse and thriving community of residents and visitors who cherish its strong sense of place and historic significance as much as they value its place at the heart of London’s future.”

    Mr Eric Low See Ching, Executive Director and Deputy CEO of Oxley, said, “London offers unparalleled opportunities for development and is a natural choice for Oxley’s first venture overseas. It has all the fundamentals for a sound real estate investment: a resilient, diverse economy and a growing, thriving population. Royal Wharf will also benefit from key transportation infrastructure improvements when Crossrail comes into service.”

    Mariner’s Quarter at Royal Wharf has outstanding transport connections to central London, whilst allowing residents to embrace village-style living. Transport links from Pontoon Dock and West Silvertown on the DLR and Canning Town on the Jubilee Line will enable residents to reach the West End in 20 minutes, Canary Wharf in five minutes and London City Airport in two minutes. In 2018, a new Crossrail station at Custom House will mean that residents can reach Heathrow Airport in just 41 minutes and the West End in 15 minutes. In addition, the Emirates Air Line, London’s only cross-river cable car, is a short walk away.
