Buy a riverfront residence in London

In recent years, a wave of innovation has washed up on the banks of the River Thames, the longest river in England, nurturing the rise of new luxury residential developments in the heart of London.

Breaking ground on the banks of the Thames

If you are a buyer interested in living in central London, near the city’s landmarks and monuments, its distinguished schools and international universities, as well as its celebrated cultural institutions, but favor modern design to dated architecture, then we have some good news: Here are 3 innovative developments making big waves on the banks of the River Thames.


The riverfront residences at Riverwalk are some of most popular new commodities on the market, and for good reasons. Firstly, to buy a residence at Riverwalk is to acquire property at one of the world’s most prestigious addresses in Westminster, home of the Royal Parks and Buckingham Palace, just a short walk from the Tate Modern, St. John’s Church, and the famous Westminster School.

Secondly, this contemporary condominium complex was built to stand out among the traditional English setting, thanks to a dynamic collaboration between the award-winning architects at Stanton Williams and the developers at Ronson Capital Partners. Its modern architecture is an extension of the river’s natural flow, bringing the city’s hustle and bustle to a pause. Similarly, the spacious 2 to 3 bedroom apartments at Riverside are sanctuaries of calm. Each layout is unique, but you can count on a space that has been carefully crafted with high-quality materials, submerged in natural light, and embellished in relaxed neutral tones. This no-fuss approach has proven to be quite attractive, as 80% of units have already been sold!

Why not reach for the stars and consider a penthouse with one of the largest private terraces and certainly one of the most breathtaking views of the skyline in central London.

Chelsea Waterfront

One of the largest ongoing developments in London is Chelsea Waterfront, ideally located at the threshold of King’s Road in Chelsea, a privileged neighborhood of art and fashion. Upon completion, this colossal project, planned by the renowned architect Sir Terry Farrell, will be comprised of 5 cutting-edge residential buildings set among landscaped gardens and squares, all linked by bridges. Residents will be granted total access to the magnificent Water Gardens, a miniature Chelsea Flower Show on display year round, as well as shops, bars, a fitness center, and the Lots Road Power Station, a historic site being completely redeveloped.

Choosing your preferred living quarters at Chelsea Waterfront depends on your criteria: 1 to 4 bedroom apartment with a balcony or terrace overlooking the Thames in Claydon House, Chartwell House, or Compton House; or if you prefer a little height, then wait on the finishing touches of 2 sleek residential towers. It’ll be worth the wait.

Battersea Power Station

Those who are looking for complete immersion will be delighted by the new development on the south bank of the River Thames. The iconic Battersea Power Station and its surrounding riverfront area in South West London are currently undergoing a total transformation into a neighborhood unlike any other in London.

To buy an apartment at Battersea Power Station is to purchase an exquisitely detailed design product at the Battersea Roof Gardens. This luxury residence was designed in the image of a moving wave by the architecture firm Foster + Partners. Though soft curves frame the exterior, crisp cuts of glass and metal give immaculate structure to the interior. Choose from an inventory of contemporary-design apartments with 2 or 3 bedrooms, available in an iridesent “Cloud” or a warm “Steam” colorway. As for the cherry on top, a massive roof garden will crown the building and boast breathtaking panoramas of the river and sparkling cityscape.

Residents will have every amenity imaginable at their doorsteps: Concierge services, retail shops, green zones, upscale restaurants, specialty grocery store, on-site winery, private bars, cafes and dining rooms, health and wellness facilities, art and cultural spaces.
