The Wharf - - CANARY WHARF - Jon Massey

Asec­ond phase of homes has gone on sale at Gal­liard Homes’ Or­chard Wharf de­vel­op­ment and a mar­ket­ing suite has opened on-site in a bid to tempt buy­ers.

Lo­cated off Sil­vo­cea Way, on the banks of the River Lea, the scheme will de­liver some 338 prop­er­ties with 236 ear­marked for pri­vate sale. De­signed by BUJ Ar­chitechts, its linked build­ings form a cres­cent when seen from above ris­ing from 10 storeys to 19.

Of the 236 homes avail­able, 70% were sold off-plan fol­low­ing the launch of Phase One in April 2017. Now the re­main­ing 76 have come to mar­ket in­clud­ing 41 one-bed­room homes, which all qual­ify for Help To Buy. Those pur­chas­ing the cheapest un­der the scheme would re­quire a mort­gage of £253,000 in ad­di­tion to the Gov­ern­ment’s 40% eq­uity loan.

The re­cently launched mar­ket­ing suite at Or­chard Wharf fea­tures the same glass and brick fa­cade as will be used in the ac­tual de­vel­op­ment. It is lo­cated over two floors, with a sales area with a scale model of the scheme, an ex­act replica of what the com­pleted de­vel­op­ment will look like on the lower floor and dressed liv­ing, kitchen, bed­room and bath­room spa­ces to give buy­ers an idea of what to ex­pect from the in­te­ri­ors should they make a pur­chase.

The prop­er­ties fea­ture de­signer fit­ted kitchens with sil­ver-grey high gloss units and cab­i­nets with frosted glass splash­backs and Smeg in­te­grated ap­pli­ances. Master bed­rooms in­clude fit­ted wardrobes with be­spoke join­ery.

Bath­rooms and en-suites have large for­mat mar­ble-ef­fect tiles on the floors and walls, wal­nut framed re­cesses with mir­ror cab­i­nets and fea­ture light­ing. Bath­room suites fea­ture a wall hung toi­lets and shower trays or steel baths as ap­pro­pri­ate.

Fin­ish­ing touches in­clude un­der floor heat­ing and chrome-plated heater towel rails.

The tower and cres­cent build­ing have floor-to-ceil­ing win­dows, bal­conies and brick fa­cades.

A cen­tral gar­den will also be cre­ated be­tween the build­ings for res­i­dents to use.

The cres­cent build­ing has three rooftop land­scaped gar­dens, avail­able for use by res­i­dents lo­cated on the 11th, 14th and 17th floors, pro­vid­ing a com­bined to­tal of 6,943sq ft of out­side roof space.

Home­own­ers will also have ac­cess to a ho­tel-style concierge, ground floor com­mer­cial units and a res­i­dents’ lounge in the res­i­den­tial tower.

Gal­liard Homes sales direc­tor David Gal­man said: “The highly an­tic­i­pated Phase Two launch of Or­chard Wharf pro­vides buy­ers with one of the largest col­lec­tions of first-time buyer apart­ments in Dock­lands, avail­able with Help to Buy.

“As part of the launch we have opened a spec­tac­u­lar new mar­ket­ing suite where po­ten­tial buy­ers can view a large scale model of the com­pleted de­vel­op­ment and dressed in­te­ri­ors”

Or­chard Wharf’s lo­ca­tion places it within easy reach of both Ca­nary Wharf and Royal Docks with ac­cess via East In­dia DLR. The link also puts it within easy com­mut­ing dis­tance of the City.

For cy­clists, it is ideally placed for ac­cess to much of east Lon­don with cy­cle paths run­ning to nu­mer­ous lo­ca­tions nearby.

It’s even pos­si­ble to fol­low the River Lea up through Lon­don and out to Hert­ford­shire.

Other nearby ameni­ties in­clude Trin­ity Buoy Wharf and the boom­ing Repub­lic of­fice de­vel­op­ment.
