On Wednesday evening, Currell attended a dinner debate to celebrate the opening of the newest phase of the Royal Docks development – Royal Albert Wharf.

The event was co-hosted by the developer Notting Hill Housing and Bow Arts who are co-ordinating the commercial space as part of the London Festival of Architecture. It brought together many people who have worked for decades on the development of the Royal Docks, and many thought provoking questions were discussed, such as:

  • How can we best take advantage of development at the eastern most point of the docks?
  • What will be the distinctive contribution of this place to the unfolding story of the Royals?
  • How should we engage with the history of the Royal Docks in creating this contribution to 21st century London?
  • Does development now express long-held ambitions or do memories fade as development now takes shape in surprising ways?

Currell are marketing commercial units within Phase 1 of the Royal Albert Wharf development, ranging from £19,000 – £60,000 per annum, with the following proposed uses; café, supermarket, office/retail (x2), and restaurant. Phase 2 will be starting on site imminently.

This event started five years ago, with the introduction of the Currell Art Award. This award is for GCSE level students to assist with their ‘aim high’ standards. The top three winners received £100, £50, and £25 worth of art vouchers.

1st prize winner from Highbury Grove, Aamnah Nehim, with her work

Last year, Cowling & Wilcox, local art suppliers based on Holloway Road, stepped in to support the schools and to provide a large art prize for the top winner.

Three years ago, Samuel Rhodes School, a special needs school adjacent to Highbury Grove, also got involved. James Neilson, the manager at our Islington branch, said:

“Currell are now in the fifth year and the standard of artwork just seems to get better and better each year. It is a pleasure to see the pupils cuddling the trophy and the big smiles.

The standard of the work was certainly very high – we were very impressed, and wish all the pupils the best of luck with their future projects.
