Creative District To Open On Major Woolwich Regeneration

A new culture hub is set to open this week at the Royal Arsenal Riverside development in south-east London...

Multi-award-winning developer Berkeley has announced that a new south-east London creative district is opening this week, a next step in the ongoing Royal Arsenal Riverside regeneration in Woolwich.

Woolwich Works opens on Thursday 23 September and is set to be a major cultural destination “to rival the Southbank in size and ambition”. It incorporates Punchdrunk, the world-renowned immersive theatre company which features a variety of famous guests, from musicians to comedians, already scheduled to appear. Its launch is a fantastic example of the range of cultural opportunities outside of London’s West End and the growing reputation of Woolwich as a creative hub.

As well as the new theatre, the development has two popular pubs with buzzing beer gardens and an award-winning restaurant, Con Gusto, which are already well-established at Royal Arsenal Riverside. There’s also a regular farmers’ market with more than 35 regular independent stalls, many of them hailing from the Royal Borough of Greenwich and nearby areas.

When complete, Royal Arsenal Riverside will have delivered over 5,000 homes to a 1,300-acre site that was for 500 years a major military facility that employed up to 100,000 people at one time. With its mix of brand new and restored heritage buildings, it has become an in-demand residential area to be further enhanced with the upcoming launch of Crossrail at a brand new station on site.

There’s a range of new homes currently for sale at Royal Arsenal Riverside.

Building 10Building 10

Building 10 is the transformation of the Royal Arsenal’s Carriage Factory, built in 1802 and one of Britain’s most significant centres for military design and manufacture during the Napoleonic wars, into homes. Building 10 is design-led with a strong sense of place and character, representing a rare opportunity to purchase a contemporary home steeped in history, with excellent transport links and vibrant culture on the doorstep.

Bold steelwork and a brick backdrop of the new homes echo the historic roots of the building, and almost 30 varying apartment layouts offer choice for everyone.

The homes are nestled over Windsor Square, a newly restored Grade II listed space, reimagined as a lively covered courtyard filled with commercial tenants, workspaces and places to meet.

Prices start at £470,000 for a one-bedroom apartment, with London Help to Buy available to first-time buyers.

Navigator WharfNavigator Wharf

At Navigator Wharf there are no more than eight apartments to any floor and inside, open-plan layouts give way to impressive views towards the River Thames or over Royal Arsenal Riverside’s beautifully landscaped Maribor Park, a new four-acre space with lush waterways and a sensory garden.

Prices start at £475,000 and range to £985,000 for a three-bedroom penthouse apartment.

Royal Arsenal Riverside residents also have access to The Waterside Club, one of the biggest facilities of its kind among London’s residential developments. This luxurious residents-only space features a 20-metre pool, steam room, sauna, vitality pool, gym, treatment rooms, private cinema room and 24-hour concierge to make bookings or take delivery of items.
