Spanning over 275 acres by the River Thames, the Royal Docks is undergoing a £314 million regeneration programme over the next five years and will become one of the most exciting new places to live in the capital. As part of this renaissance, Telford Homes is creating a new neighbourhood with this stylish, contemporary development enabling a new generation of homebuyers to own their own home and be a part of this area’s exciting story.

As part of the wider regeneration and investment story in this riverside neighbourhood, once operational the brand-new Crossrail station at Custom House will provide quick and easy access to Canary Wharf in just 3 minutes, Tottenham Court Road in 15 minutes, Bond Street in 17 minutes and Heathrow Airport in less than 45 minutes.

Homes currently available include a stylish collection of one, two and three bedroom apartments. Buyers visiting the development have the opportunity to experience the lifestyle first hand with one bedroom and two bedroom show homes by Studio Morton and ArtSpace on site.

The architecture and exterior design of Gallions Point is drawn from the area’s previous incarnation as a thriving, prosperous dock where large ships frequently passed and unloaded at the warehouses on the dock side. This maritime heritage is evident in the materials and bricks used on the residential buildings to the design of the courtyards, which reflect the design aesthetic of the Royal Docks, creating a sense of space and connection with the waterside. 

A primary focus for homes at Gallions Point is leisure and relaxation at home. The development has three courtyard gardens, as well as a private residents’ lounge in each block. Representing a modern interpretation of warehouse living, the apartments have been cleverly designed to maximise space and create generously sized contemporary living accommodation. Floor to ceiling windows flood the rooms with light with outdoor space in the form of either a balcony, terrace, or inset winter gardens with Juliette balconies.

The contemporary kitchen and living spaces combine form with function; with kitchens by renowned designer Urban Myth combined with stone work surfaces and fully integrated Smeg appliances, making the cooking space stylish and top quality, both for cooking and entertaining.

Simon Halfhide, Group Sales Director at Telford Homes, said: “Gallions Point is a unique development with excellent transport connections, providing a better work/life balance for a new generation of homebuyers at an affordable price, with one and two bedroom apartments available under the Help to Buy scheme. We are confident that the access to a range of transport and the location means it is in prime position for price growth, with prices set to rise once the regeneration is complete.”
