Build to Rent (B2R)
Client:
Essential Living
Location:
London
Union Wharf is a groundbreaking Build to Rent development for Essential Living. Delivering 249 homes, it has an array of residents’ shared amenities and an extensive public realm, The scheme has established many precedents in the Build to Rent sector, including the UK’s first private rented building specifically designed for families; it successfully challenged the London Plan’s balcony provision in favour of shared amenity spaces; it is one of the first high-rise residential projects in the UK to use volumetric offsite construction, and it pioneered the concept of discount market rent (DMR) as the affordable contribution. These DMR homes are pepper-potted across the two buildings to create an entirely tenure-blind development. Union Wharf was cited in the government’s 2017 Housing White Paper.
