Enderby Wharf, London
Contractors: Barratt Homes
Architect: HLM Architects
Groundworker: Getjar Ltd and UKD Groundworks & Civil Engineering Ltd
The Enderby Wharf project is a major mixed-use scheme which forms part of the extensive regeneration of Greenwich Peninsula. The design featuring a new international cruise liner terminal at its centre, and a river-taxi pier, this truly is the ultimate development for waterside living. As well as providing 1,000 new homes at Enderby Wharf, there are also offices, retail units, a nursery and a skills centre, ensuring the growth of a real riverside community.
PUDLO waterproof concrete has been used in Enderby Wharf’s retaining walls and suspended slab, which much of the development sits on. It provides a safe, waterproof base for the residential buildings and for many of the footpaths and landscaped gardens within the development. The lift cores, which are spread around a number of interconnecting basements, have also been constructed using PUDLO waterproof concrete, ensuring they remain dry and problem-free for the residents of this exciting project.
The site was named after Samuel Enderby, a maritime entrepreneur and explorer who founded a shipping company in the 18th century. His residence, Enderby House, was home to the Thames-side offices for a revolutionary telecommunications company which built the first subsea cables that connected the world. This listed building was in a state of disrepair for several years but has received a new lease of life as a beautiful riverside restaurant for everyone to enjoy.
Enderby Wharf has become a vibrant new quarter in Greenwich. Featuring an abundance of local amenities, landscaped gardens and over 200 metres of river frontage, it has proved popular with residents and visitors alike. The high quality apartments, with floor-to-ceiling windows giving tremendous views over the Thames and the City, have attracted huge amounts of interest from prospective buyers.
Ruth Bloomfield, the Evening Standard’s property correspondent, is impressed with the site, saying, “Developers are finally pouring money into this brilliant location which offers river views from almost every direction.”
