The high life | Upper Riverside

Upper Riverside at Greenwich Peninsula offers the ideal combination of epic views, green space, and luxury amenities all in a thriving area

IF 2020 HAS taught us anything, it’s the importance of where we live – whether that’s a great local park, close-knit community or dedicated space to work.

Thankfully, some fast-emerging London destinations are bringing these elements together amongst the urban sprawl.

One to watch in 2021 is Greenwich Peninsula, a new waterfront district spanning 150 acres with seven distinct new neighbourhoods, new cultural landmarks and expansive green spaces.

Despite its striking appearance – five bold glass and stone buildings – the latest neighbourhood to complete, Upper Riverside, is a hidden gem, sitting on the waterfront and interspersed with a riverside linear park, The Tide, yet with a thriving cultural scene and lively community on the doorstep.

With properties ranging from studios and one-bedroom apartments available with Help to Buy (prices start from £465,000), through to lofts and three-bedroom penthouses, there’s a home for everyone – including a dedicated rental collection at No 4 Upper Riverside.

Most recently, developer Knight Dragon unveiled a new collection of nine bespoke apartments by design and architecture studio, Design Haus Liberty (prices from £1.175m).

The two and three-bedroom apartments sit on the upper floors of No 5 Upper Riverside – the final chapter of the new Upper Riverside address – with floor-to-ceiling windows and expansive terraces providing far-reaching views over the river and skyline.

Residents also have access to the Upper Riverside Club, a relaxed and welcoming members’ club set across all five buildings, featuring a popular dedicated co-working space by Studio Ashby.

It is also thoroughly equipped for downtime with large sky terraces, a media entertainment room with cinema screen, 1970s-style light-up dance floor and karaoke and Renew, a Tom Dixon-designed wellness floor overlooking the skyline with two gyms, indoor pool [pictured below] and steam room.

While the doorstep of Upper Riverside is well populated with new bars, restaurants, cafes, shopping and even a gallery, it’s also superbly connected to the rest of London.

The Jubilee Line at North Greenwich Station provides a direct line to Canary Wharf in just two minutes and London Bridge in eight minutes for when the office or the wider capital is calling.
