New Capital Quay SE10 skilfully combines Thameside shops, leisure and cultural facilities, including a flagship Waitrose store and a new Greenwich Heritage Museum, art gallery, design studios and mixed-tenure homes. The result is a development that benefits residents, the local community and visitors to Greenwich. New Capital Quay provides 636 private apartments, which have been created on a site with an illustrious history; King Henry VIII built and kept his ships by this same Thames foreshore, and its shingle beach is where Queen Elizabeth I knighted Sir Francis Drake after the Golden Hind circumnavigated the globe.
The bespoke-designed kitchens of New Capital Quay’s apartments have Miele integrated appliances, stone worktops and flooring, and dark-wood cabinets. The bathrooms have underfloor heating, Marble flooring, Villeroy & Boch suites, bespoke stone vanity units and slate stone feature walls, with LCD televisions to the master en suite bathrooms. Given this high standard of design, fixtures and fittings, it’s no surprise to learn that 22 apartments sold in just two days when they first went on sale - and since then, there were sales each week for six months thereafter. The development is scheduled for completion this summer.
New Capital Quay is designed to bring the Butlers Wharf-type “café and Thameside lifestyle” to Greenwich. Surrounded by water on three sides, the scheme has plans for 29,655 sq. ft. (2,755m2) of waterside cafes, restaurants and bars, and a new flagship 18,000 sq. ft. Waitrose, one of the largest in London, has opened at the scheme. New Capital Quay also features 24-hour on-site security, secure underground parking, tree-lined boulevards, landscaped gardens, children’s play areas, design studios, art gallery space and a new Greenwich heritage museum. What’s more, the Thameside homes are just moments from the famous Cutty Sark and 10 minutes from Canary Wharf on the DLR, and around 20 minutes from Bank Station in the City of London. Prices at the development start from £458,000.
