This brand new apartment in Upper Riverside on the Greenwich Peninsula (Zone 2) offers a contemporary way to live in London - as part of a burgeoning community that's being shaped by the city's creative spirit. Some of the UK's best architects and designers are converging here to create a unique new urban fabric on an impressive scale. With two double bedrooms, a large terrace, and knockout river views from its 25th floor location, this apartment is a sanctuary of calm within the area's vibrant and dynamic developments. With interiors by Design Haus Liberty, the home offers an instant aesthetic ideal too.
The apartment cleverly reflects the surrounding topography in its architecture, with three exterior walls of windows that mirror the peninsula's three, river-edged sides. Couple this with just over 1000 square feet of internal space, and it's a home of true scope, with an abundance of natural light and far reaching views from all of the principal living and resting spaces - both indoor and out. Upper Riverside was designed by SOM as part of the area's ambitious and eclectic transformation, and forms an integral part of this authentically modern and forward-thinking neighbourhood.
Stepping into the apartment's lobby, the first of the staggered window walls fringes the right-hand side, ensuring light and lofty views from the outset. The main bathroom is set to the left, and comes complete with a bathtub and overhead shower. Moving forward, the corridor forks and, following the windows round to the right, opens out into an open plan kitchen, dining area and living room, with direct access out onto a generously sized terrace that measures at just over 275 square feet. There is enough space on the terrace for two separate seating areas. During drier days, this truly becomes an extension of your living space.
Following the lobby's left-hand fork, the master bedroom is located in the apartment's southwest corner and features built-in storage and an en suite bathroom with shower. The second double bedroom also comes with the convenience of built-in storage. Both bedrooms share the apartment's west-facing wall with the living room, which means all of these restful spaces alter in ambience as the sun sets.
Upper Riverside residents are privy to plenty of perks, with exclusive access to a host of on-point amenities across the development's five buildings. As well as a 24-hour concierge, there are three gyms, and the 15th-floor Resident's Club - designed by Tom Dixon - includes a pool, a sauna, co-working spaces and meeting rooms, five river-view roof terraces, a private dining room and two cinemas.
The lifestyle available to residents here is unrivalled, with draws for foodies, creatives and outdoor types all available in and around Upper Riverside. The surrounding acres of outdoor space includes an art trail - with striking large scale sculptures by the likes of Anthony Gormley, Alex Chinneck and Allen Jones, an elevated 5km walking route around the Thames, and a golf driving range. There's a vibrant mix of independent cafes, bars and restaurants nearby, and a monthly events calendar for Upper Riverside residents to get involved with.
The Design District is a few minutes away on foot. As London’s first permanent, purpose-built hub for the creative industries, it takes shape as a collection of 16 unique buildings, designed by a team of eight leading architects, including 6A Architects, David Kohn Architects, HNNA and SelgasCano. Meanwhile, Santiago Calatrava has designed Peninsula Place - an 80-foot-high winter garden and glass galleria that will form part of a transportation, entertainment and well being hub, and greet residents and visitors as they arrive from the tube.
The £8.4 billion transformation of Greenwich Peninsula is as exciting as it is eclectic, and is set to attract a community that appreciates the creative and the contemporary.
