Located opposite the historic Tobacco Dock, 21 Wapping Lane is the first new building to be constructed in Wapping in more than a decade. This development brings modern architecture into a maritime setting – resulting in a stunning juxtaposition.
Wapping is an area steeped in history, first mentioned as far back as 1220 though it wasn’t until the 15th century and the construction of the Wharf that it became a riverside hamlet called Wapping-on-the-Woze (mud). Large scale development of the river front with warehouses and residential buildings cemented Wapping as an important part of British seafaring business. This history can be seen in the period buildings and converted warehouses that are prevalent in the area.
Designed to complement Wapping’s historical character whilst providing new homes that bring high quality modern city living to the area. 21 Wapping Lane’s 5 buildings are an excellent addition to the area with views looking over the iconic Tobacco Dock and beyond.
Each property benefits from the highest specification features such as parquet flooring and marble bathrooms. There is also an array of onsite facilities including a private residents’ cinema and health club. It is perfectly placed for commuters standing between the City and Canary Wharf with both Wapping and Shadwell stations nearby.
