Known as East London’s new riverside community, the stunning Ballymore Goodluck Hope development has been the topic of discussion since it first opened to the public earlier this year. The latest riverside development located in the heart of E14, which is known as East London’s hidden gem, has quickly transformed into the desirable creative hub that we know today, offering boutique island living with a superb variety of amenities and shops located in London City Island and Canning Town.
The development offers over 800 beautifully designed apartments across three aesthetically chic buildings and injects new life and a community into the popular neighbourhood. Goodluck Hope is a true London island rediscovered with a certifiable buzz surrounding this development and area.
Smaller than neighbouring developments, Goodluck Hope creates a tight-knit community of residents, perfect for Generation Rent or families looking for a long term area to call home, with its luxury homes surrounded by history, culture and atmosphere and enhanced with period charm.
Described by Ballymore as “Reclaimed, Remade and Reawakened”, it’s there’s no surprise why the development has been the topic of conversation throughout London. In this article, we explain the excitement behind the Goodluck Hope development and what it offers to residents who live here.
Homes for Life
Goodluck Hope offers boutique homes ranging from studio apartments up to three-bedroom homes, with prices starting at £392,500. The highly sought after warehouse aesthetic that we often see in American sitcoms and films based in New York or Los Angeles is echoed in swathes here.
Every inch of these homes has been executed to the highest standard, ensuring maximum light and space no matter what size of property you are living in. Suites and one-bedroom homes create intimate, cosy spaces, perfect for first-time buyers. Moving up into the two and three-bedroom apartments you can expect a stripped-back palette of concrete and steel in hues of grey and white, ready to move into.
We think the most exciting aspect of the Goodluck Hope Development is the ample three-bedroom loft apartments which are now newly available. With the unique positioning, enviable location and only eight loft apartments available, they are sure to get snapped up very quickly! The high-ceilings, utilitarian aesthetic and vast windows flood every ounce of space with light. Each loft has a unique positioning, meaning a distinctive unparalleled view of The Thames and Canary Wharf, depending on the loft you live in.
The Life of Luxury
Residents of the Goodluck Hope development are guaranteed a life of luxury, with the boutique apartments offering sweeping views of the Thames and the London skyline. Since most of the apartments in the development are south-facing, there is plenty of natural sunlight flooding in for residents to enjoy.
The contemporary apartments also boast floor-to-ceiling windows and open plan interiors, for complete luxury living. For an area to relax and unwind, there is an option for a balcony overlooking the London skyline.
If you’re looking for an apartment with a more rustic and quirky setting, you may then you might be interested to know that the Goodluck Hope development offers luxury loft apartments, all with three bedrooms and two bathrooms. The loft apartments are the pinnacle of loft living with bright open spaces and sweeping views of Canary Wharf.
Fantastic Onsite Amenities
The amenities at Goodluck Hope are among the best we’ve ever seen and truly have to be seen to be believed. The residents of Goodluck Hope benefit from a 5* service from the exclusive onsite facilities, including a fully-equipped gym, swimming pool, private cinema, health spa, business centre and lounge, which are all placed in the 1595 Club.
Not only do residents have access to the facilities of neighbouring London City Island, but they also have their own fantastic onsite amenities. ‘The 1595 Club’ as it is known in the development, allows residents to escape from the outside world and enjoy the finest services in wellness, co-working and entertainment.
The Workhouse and The Lantern Room are functional, chic and modern co-working spaces where you can take the time to write that novel, finish your finance reports or simply work from an environment where you can enjoy fast Wi-Fi, comfortable chairs and tables just at the right height. Whether you want a break from working in your room or you want to meet like-minded individuals, take some time out to go to The Lantern Room as the sun comes up or down for panoramic views of the Thames and the City, which offers a retreat from the busy London lifestyle.
There really are options available to everyone, with an Olympic-Sized swimming pool which can be found at The Water House, sleek enough to be in a Spa whilst retaining a practical and functional quality for those wishing to clock up morning lengths. The Waterhouse is next to The Courtyard, an indoor-meets-outdoor corridor where plants and people collide to provide the ultimate cocoon of relaxation for residents and friends alike.
The Sweat House (also known as the fitness centre) rivals most luxury gyms across the Capital. With a stripped-back look, the gym provides all the equipment you need to work up a sweat, from resistance and cardio machines and free weights.
Prefer to get your sweat on without lifting anything? Head over to the Steam House where you can enjoy the healing and restorative aspects of steam and water, surrounded by lush ferns, climbers and the natural world around you.
More of a film buff? Grab your friends, loved ones, significant other or simply go alone to The Picture House to settle down in a plush chair and escape reality for a few hours.
A Creative Hub
Wandering around the development and surrounding area, you might be mistaken for feeling like you’re in a smaller Shoreditch. However, unlike Shoreditch, with its hordes of tourists and lack of authenticity, Trinity Buoy Wharf offers has a raw edge; a vulnerability almost, burgeoning out of its somewhat unknown yet intriguing past.
The history of this nautical expanse stretches back to 1514 when it was granted a charter by Henry VIII as “The Guild or Fraternity of the most glorious and undivided Trinity of St Clement”. It received its coat of arms in 1573 and with it the authority to erect and maintain beacons, marks and signs of the sea, “for the better navigation of the coasts of England”.
Elsewhere, children and adults alike can release their inner street-runner at the Parkour Academy and then stop off to learn some history at the Faraday Museum, dedicated to the work of the eminent scientist Michael Faraday. Families moving to the area needn’t worry about schooling either, the Faraday Prep School is in the heart of Trinity Buoy Wharf and offers mixed non-selective schooling for children aged 4-11.
Described by many as an amazing vibrant environment, Goodluck Hope is forged from London’s enduring spirit. Those who have visited the development have described it as a called it a vibrant community perfect for urban living, one which offers plenty of greenery space, making it the greatest escape from London life.
If you’re looking for an area of London steeped in maritime history, then look no further than Goodluck Hope. As a location shaped by its prime history of London, the design of Goodluck Hope has been inspired by the industrial past of the area, which is evident in the buildings and the overall design of the development.
With an architectural style influenced by the Docklands warehouses, the designers of the development have placed creativity at the heart of the development, which further enhances East London’s reputation as an artistic and cultural hub.
Location is Key
You might feel as though you are on a secluded island, however transport options are plenty, with excellent transport links into London City, Canary Wharf and further beyond, with the tube, DLR, Thames Clipper, Crossrail and an extensive bus network. This means that you can reach Canary Wharf in 17 minutes and London Bridge within 31 minutes.
The Jubilee Line is on the Night Tube so no matter what you have planned you can find a way home easily and safely.
The development is only moments away from the East India Dock Basin and the Limmo Peninsula Ecological Park. Both are great for children and adults alike, so whether you love taking your little ones for an insect hunt, or an evening run after work, you can enjoy vast swathes of nature whilst only being less than half an hour from central London.
Located on the historic Leamouth Peninsula, the Goodluck Hope development boasts incredible views along the River Thames. Once a busy part of the London Docklands, the area has reinvented itself as the perfect location for a riverside community.
About The Area
The area is known for its creative community with artists, makers and architects creating homes in refurbished shipping containers. Nearby attractions include London’s only lighthouse at Trinity Buoy Wharf and the Faraday Project, a tiny museum dedicated to the work of Michael Faraday.
The development also offers a range of restaurants, shops, leisure facilities, bars and outside spaces to eat, shop and relax in. In keeping with area tradition, The Wharf Brewing Company will set up shop and open a brewhouse for visitors to learn more about the process and enjoy an ale or two. It’s designed to be a brewhouse for people to gather in throughout the day and learn about the brewing heritage and history of imports and exports.
Wondering what to do in the area? Why not tuck into a juicy burger at Fatboy’s Diner for a start. Think you recognise your surroundings? Fatboy’s unique location and interesting exterior (an Airstream) has been used in many films, most notably the 1998 romantic comedy Sliding Doors with Gwyneth Paltrow.
