What's life like living on the Royal Docks?

We recently caught up with Ramsey, a resident at Royal Eden Docks' sister site Royal Docks West, to discover why the Royal Docks was the right choice for him.

Construction update


The Courtyard

The stair and lift core has been built up to the third floor so far, with more progress to be made to this over the coming weeks.

The Botanist

The third floor decking is currently being formed - this is the framework we build before laying the steel reinforcement and concrete which creates a floor. The stair and lift core has been built up to floor 6.

The Wellspring

Enabling works for The Wellspring are due to commence this month in preparation for the piling to start in June - piling is where we drill deep holes into the ground that will create the foundation to your new home.

The amenities

The outer box structure for the 20-metre swimming pool has been fully formed and waterproofing is currently being installed.

We're continuing to carry out all our work on site safely, following the government guidance, with weekly COVID testing on site for all team members and contractors.

Check out some time-lapse footage below of all the action on site.
