Fully-fitted or open plan office space available for rent within this Grade II Listed, purpose-built Victorian riverside warehouse
Metropolitan Wharf is a Grade II Listed Victorian riverside warehouse and is one of London’s most impressive wharf buildings. Sitting on the northern banks of the Thames, the building is sandwiched between the cobbles of Wapping Wall and the lapping of the river, in an atmospheric and hugely characterful location that was not only the Capital’s nautical hotspot, but also the launch pad of London’s urban renaissance. Wapping is gradually building a name for itself for an emerging scene of creative workspaces that sit alongside its well-established reputation for some of London’s most authentic examples of riverside warehouse apartments. The commercial space created in the 80s and 90s from the initial regeneration of the docks are now being renovated into twenty first century workspaces to match those in the City Fringe, but within a unique quarter abutting the eastern side of Tower Bridge. Metropolitan Wharf’s latest incarnation is courtesy of UK Real Estate whose current repositioning of the building is led by Hawkins Brown Architects. Alongside the revitalised commercial element, the refurbishment includes 8 residential penthouses from Design Research Studio, the interior design arm of Tom Dixon. We are offering a series of newly refurbished creative workspaces across the first to sixth floors. All feature open plan floor plates and a specification including high speed fibre connectivity, exposed brickwork, cast iron columns, galvanised steel perimeter trunking, suspended LED lighting and superb natural daylight through warehouse style windows inspired by the original design.
Wapping’s transport offering was transformed with the coming of the Overground. Just two stops from Whitechapel and the forthcoming Crossrail interchange, Wapping is now extremely well connected to London’s transport network: just one stop from the DLR at Shadwell and two from the Jubilee Line at Canada Water, meaning Canary Wharf, the City and City Fringe are all within a 10 minute ride.
