Innovative housing & commercial developments have transformed the area
Once the biggest and busiest docklands in the world, London’s docks were heavily bombed in World War 2. After a rather lifeless rebirth in the fifties they were no longer in use by the late 1980’s. With housing consisting of local council housing and flats and no commercial infrastructure to speak of, they soon fell into a pretty depressed state of being.
Fast forward to today and a completely different story is being written. With lots of new innovative housing, retail and commercial developments this area has been transformed into a vibrant and varied place to work and live. Waterside living is first class living and plenty of people are now availing of the chance to call this prime location home.
