Blackwall Yard

Project Description:


Blackwall Yard is a large-scale mixed use (primarily residential) development on a vacant plot of land adjacent to the Thomson Reuters building.

The current site is an open space which consists of the historic Graving Dock and a car park. The development will occupy a large area to the north but retains substantial outdoor space to provide an attractive and enjoyable public realm incorporating the Graving Dock as the centre piece.

The project is made up of 4 distinct blocks with a central hub. Around this central hub are numerous blocks and towers ranging in height up to 39 stories.

Hadley property Group plan to design the scheme to deliver:

A new high-quality mixed-use destination.

A new centre and focal point for the immediate surrounding district and community.

898 new homes including 35% affordable, cafés, restaurants, retail and commercial space.

Potential for a new two-form primary state school is also included.

The project is situated on the north bank of the Thames between the river and Blackwall Way.

  • High Rise construction
