A new neighbourhood in East London
A place to connect
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 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.
