The development

Soho Wharf is one of the biggest brownfield canal-side schemes in the U.K.

The turnkey development, acquired by Swedish giant Heimstaden Bostad for £160m, will deliver an attractive array of choices including 650 one- and two-bedroom apartments, and 102 carefully-crafted two- and three-bedroom family townhouses, with 64 on-site affordable units, in buildings ranging from four to 14 storeys.

With intimate green pockets, shared gardens, and public waterfront spaces, Soho Wharf includes around 10,000K SF of vibrant, public, and resident-friendly commercial at ground level.

Two central public greens, known as 'The Meadow' and 'Garden', totalling 38% of the site will serve as new focal points at the heart of Soho Wharf. Another located canal-side will provide fluid connectivity to the wider canal network via a new pedestrian bridge.
