Large Housing Development


The Water Yards masterplan is a major mixed-use development at Canada Water in Southwark, which will deliver a new town centre with 1030 new homes and a range of commercial and community uses across a seven-acre site.  Porters Edge at Water Yards is the first phase of the development. Its role within the wider masterplan is to provide a new consolidated store location for the current Decathlon stores within a new mixed-use urban block. By doing this it makes way for the rest of the redevelopment and forms the northern edge of the masterplan and brings new definition to the Albion Channel to the north, Surrey Quays road to the east, the new public space to the south and the Canada Water Basin to the south. Rising up to 18 storeys, the development includes 234 apartments for private rent.
