About the Property
A spectacular new development on London’s River Thames – the first of its type on the north bank in Chelsea in over a hundred years and the only one that is literally in touch with the river.
It offers unrivalled views over London, exquisite apartments on the river’s edge, incomparable restaurants, bars, shops and health & fitness facilities.
Today, Chelsea is London’s natural artistic centre: the ‘patron place’ of art and fashion. Here, in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea you can have a place in the nation’s history. Here you can rub shoulders with the capital’s best – because you have discovered one of the finest addresses on the globe.
Chelsea has developed as London’s natural artistic quarter. Many great historical figures have flourished and been nourished here: painters, poets, writers, playwrights, dancers, actors, architects, designers, engineers, politicians and explorers from Thomas More to Scott of the Antarctic, William Turner to James Whistler, TS Eliot to AA Milne, Agatha Christie to Oscar Wilde.
Chelsea is home to: The Royal Court Theatre of Osborne, Wesker and Arden. The Chelsea College of Arts – Nash, Kapoor and Hockney. The Cadogan Hall of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. To view the great river from the heights of Chelsea Waterfront’s towers offers a unique chance to grasp its majesty, the rural romantic and the rugged.
They were building ships here before the Romans arrived. Ships of war took shape during mediaeval times. Docks, wharfs and quays emerged during the 17th and 18th centuries, and by the 19th merchant ships were trading with the furthest corners of the world.
The glistening glass towers of Chelsea Waterfront are superbly placed to salute the Thames arriving from the rural west and to see it on its way to the east.
Breathing new life into an older part of Chelsea took inspiration, ingenuity, enterprise and ambition. And something else: dedication to the principles and practices of regeneration. Sir Terry Farrell is one of the world’s most pre-eminent Post-Modernist architects and one of the world’s distinguished masters in urban planning. Above all, he has mastered the art of regeneration, and at Chelsea Waterfront created a thing of beauty, through reinvention and restoration.
Two glass towers of 37 and 25 storeys; The Metropolitan Building converted from the iconic Power Station into residential apartments; low rise apartments on the River’s edge set around landscaped water gardens, all connected by three new interlinking bridges across the creek.
600 metres of unique waterfront living set in exquisite gardens and squares. Each separate architectural mix and infrastructure is devised to meet the needs of a particular time.
Incomparable restaurants, bars, shops, health & fitness facilities: a spectacular new development literally in touch with the River.
