In one of London’s most rapidly developing and exciting areas, the prestigious developer Hollybrook presents New Pier Wharf — your chance to experience riverside life at the edge of the capital’s financial hub.
Green, open spaces, a dockside transformed into a lively waterside community. Cobbled streets and historical buildings surrounded by modern amenities, and an area flushed with the buzz of redevelopment. All of this and some of the city’s most beautiful woodlands and parks, complete with stunning river views, all next to the pumping heart of one of London’s major financial districts.
Thames Clipper riverboats from nearby Greenland Pier travel to Canary Wharf in only 4 minutes. The pier is a short walk (6 mins) from the development and operates from 6am until past midnight.
LIVING ON THE RIVER
ONE OF THE TRUE JOYS OF LIFE IN ROTHERHITHE IS BEING ABLE TO EXPLORE the thames PATH.
The Thames Path, coming all the way from the Cotswolds, winds past New Pier Wharf to offer unprecedented access to the city. Walk west and you can reach Butler’s Wharf, the Tate Modern, the Southbank and the London Eye. Walk east and you’ll arrive in Greenwich to explore the Cutty Sark, the Royal Maritime Museum, the Observatory and the Thames Barrier.
A RIVER TRADITION
Centuries ago, before it was transformed into one of London’s most important ports, Rotherhithe offered city dwellers a chance to escape the hustle of the capital. Nestled on the city’s rural edges, tranquil escapes like the Tea Gardens lured the great and the good including King George IV. After years as a booming port, Rotherhithe is returning once more to its origins. Whilst the river will always be a central feature of life here, green spaces, riverside walkways and parks have now replaced the hum of industry.
A HIDDEN GEM
Next to the bustle of Canary Wharf, Rotherhithe has enjoyed a quiet, but steady redevelopment since renovation of the docks began in the 1980s. What was once a booming industrial area is fast becoming one of the city’s most rapidly transforming areas. Vibrant. Increasingly chic. Rotherhithe is London’s best kept secret.
INVEST IN A NEW WAY OF LIVING
Within easy commuting distance of central London, close to both Canary Wharf and leafy Greenwich, it’s no wonder Rotherhithe has been ear marked for regeneration. The soon to be built Brunel Bridge for pedestrians and cyclists, will put the area within a five-minute walk of Canary Wharf and promises to consolidate the value of investment in the area. Regeneration fuelled by the ambitious Canada Water Masterplan and the King’s College Mulberry campus is set to raise the value of the area.
In addition to the Thames Tow Path heading up and down the river, cycle lanes dissect the area in all directions including through Rotherhithe Street, the Albion Channel, the Ecological Park, and through both Russia Dock and Greenland Dock. Once the bike friendly Brunel Bridge has been completed, access to central London by foot and bike will be even easier.
Local bus routes include the number 1 to New Oxford Street, the C10 to Victoria, the number 47 to Shoreditch, and the number 188 to Russel Square.
