Imperial Wharf is one residential development that springs to mind whenever the subject of prime riverside regeneration in London is mentioned. The studio, one, two and three bedroom apartments in several buildings that make up this outstanding Berkeley scheme, are dazzling examples of what can be achieved by energetic and far-sighted planning.
Positioned on the River Thames shoreline that is shared by Fulham and neighbouring Chelsea, old railway tracks and a disused industrial space formerly known as Sands End, have been transformed into a brand new neighbourhood, complete with on-site gym, 24-hour concierge, exclusive shops, stylish restaurants and spectacular views of the River.
Surrounded by landscaped gardens and overlooking spacious boulevards, the apartments form a "Riviera - style" promenade that includes a river taxi pier – a popular alternative for corporate residents to commute into the city centre. The potential of this scheme was apparent early on: so much so, that Imperial Wharf is the only development in London with its own purpose-built overground railway station. This means that residents are closely linked to the famously fashionable Kings Road shopping thoroughfare as well as the West End and the City. They are also within easy reach of many top state and independent schools as well as all the main London universities.
Imperial Wharf Overground Station is part of an orbital transport network that connects vital Zone 2 destinations, such as Westfield Shopping City, Hampstead, Westfield Stratford and Clapham Junction (for the Gatwick Express). It is also just one stop away from Brompton Road station (District Line), a strategic interchange that runs services to Victoria Station, High Street Kensington and Paddington (Elizabeth Line).
