Silvertown shines for first-time buyers

The Silvertown peninsula, with the Thames on one side and the Royal Docks on the other, currently offers some of the more affordable residential properties in the areas adjacent to Canary Wharf, with two-bedroom flats available for a little over £200,000. New neighbourhoods are planned for the area as it undergoes a £6.5bn transformation, including Thameside West, which will bring 5,000 new homes, along with shops, restaurants, bars, parks and schools. Shared ownership homes at The Refinery, close to West Silvertown DLR station, start at £120,750 for a 35% share of a one-bedroom flat, rising to £183,750 for a three-bed apartment.
