Location

Living.

Breathing.

London.

Barking Riverside lies beside two kilometres of beautiful river Thames frontage.  Its close proximity to Barking town centre, the City of London, Canary Wharf and the beautiful Essex countryside makes it the perfect location.

The development is centrally located within the London Riverside Area, part of the larger Thames Gateway redevelopment zone, which is transforming the east London environment. It is one of the largest housing development sites in the UK and one of the largest brownfield developments in Europe.

The site is the location of the former Barking Power Station; the river frontage includes a disused wharf, pier and wider areas of untouched natural landscapes, spreading east towards Dagenham.

BARKING RIVERSIDE OFFERS COMMUTER SAVINGS

Barking Riverside offers a highly competitive annual commuting cost when compared to other locations with access to the East London mainline stations of Liverpool Street and Fenchurch Street.

Urban Design

Barking Riverside London has already received significant acclaim for its pioneering design and layout. BRL is committed to improving the local infrastructure, meaning that the development will feature new healthcare facilities, open space, public squares, transport links and seven new schools, as well as new restaurants, bars, retail, community and leisure facilities.

Barking Power Station

The power station remained operational until the 1980’s when the last of the main turbine buildings were demolished.

Two former power station buildings remain on site, but are derelict, along with substantial underground power infrastructure that will require removal, upgrading or diverting as part of the regeneration of the site.

Barking Riverside London is committed to retaining the two former buildings for future use as part of the redevelopment. They are the prize assets of the project that will be integral in the regeneration and it is planned that they will include some form of public or service use.
