London buy of the week
Around the world in Docklands — via New York and Scandinavia
£712,500: if you haven’t already heard the buzz about Goodluck Hope, Docklands’ new neighbourhood, get yourself down to Union Wharf in E14 and take a look at this two-bedroom apartment on the 10th floor in a prime spot overlooking the river.
The 850sq ft pad homes in on east London’s rich industrial past, using factory-style floor-toceiling windows in the open-plan living/dining and kitchen space that opens out to a 73sq ft balcony — perfect for enjoying coffee and a croissant on a sunny morning.
On-site perks include round-the-clock concierge services, a New York- inspired gym, a swimming pool, a Scandi-style steam room, cinema, restaurant and lounge bar, while the block is also home to the Wharf Brewing Company.
