Best new development prize for Royal Albert Wharf

Our Royal Albert Wharf development on the Royal Docks has been named Best New Development in the South at the First Time Buyer Readers’ Awards.

The honour, voted for by readers of the magazine, recognises the high quality of the homes and huge range of amenities available to those living there.

There are 1,856 homes on the development, with one, two and three-bedroom flats available via shared ownership and with Help to Buy support.

It is an exciting time for Royal Albert Wharf, with famous chef Cyrus Todiwala due to open his award-winning restaurant Café Spice Namaste this month and community art gallery Art in the Docks having recently opened its doors to offer workshops, exhibitions and screenings. Art in the Docks is hosted by local arts education charity Bow Arts.

Jim Munson, head of marketing at Notting Hill Genesis, said: “The south of England is such a broad geographic area with a highly competitive marketplace for new developments, so we’re delighted that readers have recognised Royal Albert Wharf for this prestigious award. The development is truly standout as a place with unique character that reflects the rich history of east London and the Royal Docks, while building an exciting new community and destination for living – and we’re glad the judges and readers at First Time Buyer Magazine agree.

We have a commitment to providing high quality affordable housing for first-time buyers as part of a range of tenures that supports our vision of providing homes that build a better place for all, and Royal Albert Wharf is a fantastic example as it truly has something for everyone.

The First Time Buyer Readers’ Awards were started in 2010 to celebrate those going the extra mile to support people onto the housing ladder.
