The charity making life better by water

Bow Wharf - London

Bow Wharf is situated at the junction of the Hertford Union and Regents Canal in a conservation area. Our joint venture company, H2O Urban, secured planning consent in 2014 for 34 residential units and a small commercial space.

The scheme consists of three blocks, which are separated by the Hertford Union Canal but linked by a Grade 2 listed bridge. A new piazza space has been created and the listed bridge refurbished. The design of the new blocks is a modern interpretation of the traditional canal-side warehouse and complements the adjoining, existing Bow Wharf site with its traditional canal-side architecture.

An special purpose vehicle was set up between H2O and Rooff Property LLP to undertake the development, and the scheme was completed in October 2018.
