London’s Royal Docks are fast evolving into a vibrant 21st century environment to live, work and visit. Find out more about the ambitious plans to create the latest exciting chapter in the evolution of an area of the capital that has barely stood still in 200 years.

Royal Victoria Dock

The Royal Victoria Docks is already a vibrant area attracting many Londoners and visitors. However it is due to be home to one of the most exciting and unique developments in Europe – London’s Floating Village. To be developed by Carillion Igloo Genesis this stunning project will include a thriving community of homes, shops, restaurants, cafés all floating on the water set beneath the Emirates Airline and a stones throw from Royal Victoria DLR. Based on the groundbreaking project in Ijburg in the Netherlands these will be permanently moored mortgageble properties linked together by pontoons. The development even allows for each property to have its own parking space – but this time for your private vessel rather than car! The project includes a number of exciting and distinctive restaurants and bars all set upon the water of Royal Victoria Dock and will also feature events space and office space. A floating lido and ice rink have also been proposed.

5 hectares

of water will be transformed into a thriving community with floating homes, restaurants, cafes and bars.

Royal Albert Basin

An exciting Development is underway by Notting Hill Housing Group for a riverside community located at Great Eastern Quay which adjoins Albert Island and the Gallions Marina. It will incorporate homes and shops and there will be improved links to the University of East London and surrounding areas. There’s also a proposal for marine-based industry and a commercial boatyard providing services to London’s leisure and working craft operating on the Thames.
