The doors have now opened to the highly anticipated award-winning riverside address by Studio Ashby: No. 3 Upper Riverside at Greenwich Peninsula.
One of the world’s most sought-after tastemakers and design influencers, Ashby has curated bespoke interiors across a collection of 126 apartments, lofts, penthouses and residents’ amenities, all inspired by the building’s prime position on the River Thames.
No. 3 Upper Riverside is the latest chapter of Upper Riverside, the new design-led neighbourhood within Greenwich Peninsula. It encompasses a family of five striking prism-like towers which cascade to the banks of the river, each with interiors by contrasting icons of Britain’s design world. The opening of No. 3 Upper Riverside – by Studio Ashby – represents an important milestone for the distinctive new neighbourhood ahead of its final completion next year.
The building also extends the impressive range of amenities, introducing a new co-working space to the Upper Riverside Club – a suite of resident facilities which also includes Renew, an entire floor dedicated to wellness and relaxation.
Greenwich Peninsula – the 150-acre regeneration project enveloped by 1.6 miles of the River Thames – is creating the capital’s boldest modern cultural landscape. It is now a well-established new London district, already home to some 3,000 residents and a host of new cultural spaces, restaurants and bars. The completion of No. 3 Upper Riverside follows the recent opening of new event space, Magazine London, and the summer unveiling of The Tide, London’s first ever cultural linear park, the first section of which weaves throughout Upper Riverside.
Riverside living – inside and out
Perched on the tip of the Peninsula, interspersed with landscaped walkways, No. 3 Upper Riverside takes inspiration from its unique waterside setting. Apartments maximise the far-reaching views with floor-to-ceiling windows that perfectly frame the river and skyline, and balconies which provide much-desired private outside space from which to also enjoy the impressive vistas.
The eclectic yet homely interiors by Studio Ashby – two-time winner of Designer of the Year at The Sunday Times British Homes Awards, including for No. 3 Upper Riverside in 2018 – also put the River Thames centre stage. Ashby has used a warm palette of grey and dusty blue. drawn from the ever-changing hues of the River Thames, alongside materials including brass, stone and warm oak, which complements and contrast the bold, angular architecture of the building and its surroundings.
Spaces to work, relax and play
Spread across Upper Riverside’s five iconic buildings is The Upper Riverside Club, a host of modern and convenient amenities and services that bring the best of work, rest and play to the doorstep. From cinema rooms, lounges and libraries to co-working and event spaces; from the concierge to the digital community app – life on the Peninsula is as easy and accessible as ever.
No. 3 Upper Riverside is home to the residents’ library and co-working space, also designed by Studio Ashby. It also introduces a spectacular roof garden and terrace – a key feature of all Upper Riverside buildings and popular space for resident events.
Residents also enjoy Renew, a bold yet elegant spa and wellness centre masterminded by design giant, Tom Dixon. Occupying the upper most floors of No. 2 Upper Riverside, it is cleverly designed to embrace the surrounding panorama with floor-to-ceiling windows and portholes that frame the views while drawing on the maritime heritage. The Renew floor boasts one of London’s highest swimming pools – with the best skyline views, alongside a steam room, two state-of-the-art gymnasiums and a terrace for open-air exercise and relaxation.
Kerri Sibson, Sales and Marketing Director, Knight Dragon, said: “Upper Riverside offers homes unlike any other in the capital – in space, in aesthetic and in views – providing residents with a new perspective on London, and way to live in the city. With this new waterfront neighbourhood due to complete next year, the opening of No. 3 Upper Riverside marks an exciting chapter in the Upper Riverside story.”
A new district for London
An almost-island in the capital’s Zone 2, Greenwich Peninsula is leading the charge for a new London. With creativity at its heart, it will create at least 13,000 new jobs and 15,000 new homes, with £500m invested in culture-led public and social spaces across its seven new neighbourhoods.
Residents and visitors are already enjoying the first section of cultural linear park, The Tide. once complete, will span 5km and feature a series of elevated walkways and sunken gardens, as well as landmark artworks from renowned names such as Damien Hirst and Allen Jones – many arriving early this year. A host of new neighbourhood restaurants and bars on the river are also proving popular, from family-run Mama Fuego and Basque restaurant, Ardoa, to a new dining and deli concept from Market Table.
The next six months will also see the completion of the final two buildings within Upper Riverside, as well as the highly anticipated opening of the Design District – London’s first purpose-built district created specifically for the creative community with studio, workshop and desk spaces alongside a series of public areas including a basketball court, galleries and walkways.
