Anchor’s Point, the rental phase of the Gallions Green development is set to be handed over to Sigma Capital.

The rental phase of the Gallions Green development site in Royal Albert Wharf, known as Anchor’s Point, is expected to be transferred to Sigma Capital this month. The Build to Rent homes will be managed under the Simple Life London rental brand.

Anchor’s Point includes 132 new homes – a mix of one, two and three bedroom Build to Rent apartments and family-friendly duplexes. Amenities include a gym, co-working space, a resident lounge and concierge.

“We’re really excited to take handover of our blocks at Anchor’s Point and look forward to offering local renters a high-quality home with a refreshing, professional approach to renting. We’ve experienced high levels of local interest so far, so we’re expecting the development to prove very popular. This is set to become a very vibrant and sought-after community to be a part of.”

Stuart Churchward, Development Director on behalf of Simple Life London

The Gallions Green development – which topped out in March 2023 – is the penultimate phase of the wider Royal Albert Wharf masterplan in the Royal Docks, and welcomed Mayor of London Sadiq Khan just a year ago to celebrate the phase reaching its highest point. The development is welcoming its first residents as it reaches practical completion.

The scheme includes two buildings with a total of 267 new homes – of which 132 homes are Build to Rent. Over half of the homes are affordable housing, with 40% being larger homes designed for families.

The Gallions Green project is a joint venture partnership between one of the largest housing associations in the country – Notting Hill Genesis – and residential and mixed-used developer – Telford Homes. The pair secured the forward-sale of the Build to Rent element in early 2023, which is being delivered on behalf of a joint venture between EQT Exeter and Sigma Capital Group.

“We are proud to be working in partnership with Notting Hill Genesis on the penultimate phase of the Royal Albert Wharf masterplan, delivering high-quality homes that focus on community and will be a place that residents can live, work and play for years to come.”

Once complete, Royal Albert Wharf in the Royal Docks will have been transformed into a vibrant mixed-use community. It will include 1,856 homes, 9,100 sqm of commercial space, and affordable studio space for artists and the creative sectors. With over £34m of funding from the Greater London Authority, 42% of the total homes will be genuinely affordable housing.
