The first homes at a new development within the Barking Riverside regeneration scheme are set to go on sale next month. Bellway London is preparing to launch Eastbrooke Village, its latest contribution towards the rejuvenation of the former Barking Power Station site.
The new development will comprise 107 apartments, including 53 properties for private sale and 54 affordable homes for rent or shared ownership. Construction work is already underway on the site, which will feature a range of one, two and three-bedroom apartments.
Amie Triphook-Cole, Head of Sales at Bellway London, said: “The launch of Eastbrooke Village underlines our ongoing commitment to the Barking Riverside project and follows the success of our first development in the wider scheme, Fielders Quarter.
“We have already handed over the keys to 100 apartments at Fielders Quarter, where construction work is continuing, and we are looking forward to welcoming the first visitors to our latest development next month.
“The sales rates at Fielders Quarter demonstrate the growing appetite for new homes in the area, as Barking Riverside establishes itself as one of London’s most rapidly developing neighbourhoods and a destination of choice for buyers on all stages of the property ladder in the capital.
“Major investments in local transport infrastructure are significantly improving connections to the rest of the capital. Thames Clipper services are now running from the recently opened Barking Riverside Pier while the extension of the Overground line later this year will provide a direct link to national rail and Underground services at Barking.
“The range of apartments at Eastbrooke Village will provide options for buyers with varying needs, from families with young children needing more space to downsizers looking for a more manageable home with lower maintenance requirements. With just over half of the apartments at this development being allocated as affordable homes, we are also making a sizeable contribution towards much-needed housing association stock in the borough of Barking and Dagenham.”
