Paul Davis + Partners ignites the regeneration of Wapping with its new residential scheme.

Paul Davis + Partners’ just completed, largely residential and mixed-use scheme, looks set to act as a catalyst for the regeneration of the historic dockland area of Wapping in east London.

+44 (0) 7710 787 708images@adamparker.co.uk21 Wapping Lane, a high quality development for Ballymore, consists of five main blocks varying in height and massing that are connected by richly landscaped courtyards. To the south of the site, the buildings are rectilinear, while to the north of the site and adjacent to a canal, the blocks are more curved, reflecting the changing urban fabric.

Four of the blocks are residential, while the fifth, a 20-storey tower employing a curved façade and sculptural terracing – an abstract reference to the historic ships that once characterised Wapping – combines mixed use on the ground floor with apartments above. A mix of 379 market, intermediate and social units are provided in the scheme, which uses robust and high quality materials.

The creation of a new public piazza, located near to the historic grade I listed Tobacco Dock development and 21 Wapping Lane, also has the potential to ignite the regeneration of the local area.

“In developing 21 Wapping Lane, Paul Davis + Partners adhered to sound urban design principles. In doing so, the scheme contributes positively to its local surroundings and has acted as a catalyst for other improvements in the area including the re-launch of a local events venue and the development of the site adjacent to the scheme by a major bank.”
