The latest phase of the iconic London Dock development, Saffron Court, is launching soon. Already one of the capital’s premier living environments, London Dock is something of a well-kept secret. Hidden away behind London Bridge and Wapping High Street, its quiet canals, riverside docks and narrow streets mean it feels a million miles from the hustle and bustle of life in the big city. As residents will attest, it has a style and charm all of its own, and as the latest addition to this unique, community-led location, Saffron Court is shaping up to be something really quite special.
Standing at an impressive eighteen-storeys, Saffron Court is a state-of-the-art tower, featuring forty-nine exquisitely crafted apartments, including sixteen Manhattan, nineteen one-bedroom and fourteen two-bedroom. Each is an expansive, wonderfully designed home, with engineered wood floors, bespoke kitchens, underfloor heating and bathrooms finished to the highest possible standard. Perhaps what makes them really stand out, though, is the overall aesthetic. Modern, warm and effortlessly cosmopolitan, each property can also lay claim to a private terrace or balcony, providing outstanding views across London Dock’s waterways, communal areas and greenspace.
Of course, this is really about reinventing ideas around urban living in the 21st century. Life in London is always stimulating. It is, after all, one of the greatest cities in the world. However, we all lead busy, demanding lives these days and London Dock was originally designed so that residents would have a place to relax, rejuvenate and replenish in surroundings specifically intended to make that as easy as possible for them. In many ways, Saffron Court is merely a continuation of that relatively straightforward ideal: to enjoy and experience the very best that London has to offer.
Situated between The City and Canary Wharf - two of the world’s leading financial hubs - residents at Saffron Court will have access to an extensive range of five-star facilities. With a pool, spa, cinema room and virtual golf among just some of the onsite activities, a night in after a long day takes on a whole new meaning. However, step outside and you’re only moments from a series of excellent bars, restaurants and cultural venues. Not for the first time, the phrase ‘best of both worlds’ comes to mind.
Set to be completed in 2025, Saffron Court remains a highly desirable investment opportunity. This is in part because of its prodigious Zone 1 location but also because London Dock in general has proved hugely popular with families, skilled professionals and international students alike. With outstanding transport links into the city and beyond, Saffron Court is well on track to becoming the area’s most valuable new asset. Watch this space.
