A Spotlight On: Imperial Wharf

Imperial Wharf, Fulham. Views

Imperial Wharf is a relatively new destination in London, created out of the redevelopment of brownfield land in the Sands End area of Fulham where it meets with the Chelsea border. 

Funded at large by developers St George, the project began around 2005 with plans for 1,800 luxury riverside apartments on the site. This new housing stock led to increased demand for new transport links and talks of a new station. 

This construction went ahead over the next couple of years, also funded by St George, at a cost of approximately £3,000,000.  The new Overground station took its name from their neighbouring Imperial Wharf developments and completed ahead of schedule in September 2009. 

This new station provided an important north-south connection between Clapham Junction and West Brompton and routes further in each direction to connect Milton Keynes and East Croydon.  It invoked renewed interested in the area, attracting the interest of more developers and further residential expansion to the Imperial Wharf neighbourhood.

Imperial Wharf’s close proximity to Chelsea Harbour and the easy connections into central London, combined with the luxury specification of the new developments means Imperial Wharf has succeeded in creating a new destination neighbourhood for young professionals and property investors, away from the traditional, prime central London golden postcode zones.

The high rise buildings boast glorious views across the River Thames, as shown to great effect by the views from this tenth floor property at Imperial Wharf (pictured).

London’s riverfront landscape is undergoing an exciting period of investment and change.  Situated not far along the river from Imperial Wharf are other emerging luxury developments, including at Battersea and Nine Elms in Vauxhall, - where St George are also behind the newest addition to the skyline there - The Tower – London’s tallest residential-only building.  These works only continue to keep London’s property market the topic of conversation amongst property investors across the globe and reinforce its strong ability to reinvent itself time and again.
