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.
