Telford Homes’ Parkside Quarter development on the outskirts of Canary Wharf delivers the ideal response to balancing the commercial realities of residential development alongside the need to create high quality, affordable homes for those who live and work in the capital but do not command the salaries that most private sector London homes require.
The 62 apartments in the development’s main five-story block will be marketed to private buyers by Telford Homes, while a separate 4-storey block containing 17 apartments will be let by East End Homes and the housing association will also offer five apartments in a further four-storey block for shared ownership. While the target market for the private and social housing elements of the scheme may be very different, many elements of the specification are the same; including the green roofs that will feature on all three blocks.
Designed by David Wood Architects, the Parkside Quarter scheme is named after the acres of parkland that lies adjacent to it on the Isle of Dogs, in an enviable location that is only a few minutes’ walk away from the banks of the Thames. The use of green roofs on all three apartment buildings, therefore, connects the residential scheme to its location, creating synergy with its green surroundings.
At Parkside Quarter, each apartment offers fantastic modern interiors that reflect the best in contemporary urban living.
