Royal Wharf continuing the regeneration in East London

Just minutes from Canary Wharf, and less than half an hour from Oxford Street, the Royal Wharf development has created a significant new community on the north bank of the River Thames.

The 40 acre site was originally developed as an industrial works at the end of the nineteenth century and was also used for the manufacture of TNT during the First World War. It then became an oil storage and refinery site until the late 1990’s.

The regeneration of the site will include 3,385 new homes and a new passenger stop for the Thames Clipper ferry service. It will provide a rich, textured neighbourhood, focused around a lively central high street, a broad market square and a rolling riverside park.

Our role is to deliver a wayfinding scheme for all residents and visitors to site including potential buyers and users of local public transport. The scheme is to be designed to align with the phased roll out and ongoing changes within the development. We have also been tasked with providing guidelines for the promotion of retail and commercial opportunities.
