Our office is based in Tavern Quay by Greenland Dock close to Surrey Docks Fitness & Watersports Centre. Some of our team live in the neighbourhood in the recently developed Marine Wharf, Marine Wharf East and Greenland Place developments just beyond South Dock Marina, and in historic Rotherhithe near the river. We are highly knowledgeable about the developments, amenities and transport links in this part of London.
Local residents love the tranquillity of the area, combined with its excellent connections to the City, the West End, Canary Wharf, East London and Maritime Greenwich. The stations of Surrey Quays and Canada Water are easily accessible, along with Greenland Pier for Thames Clipper services. The surroundings include Russia Dock Woodland, Greenland Dock and the Thames Path.
The 53-acre Canada Water Masterplan will bring exciting developments, with the first phase due to be complete by 2024. This initial stage will provide new civic space, a leisure centre, housing, retail and workspace to the west of the iconic library. The whole project will replace the current shopping centre, leisure park and old newspaper factory sites, and will create a new pedestrian heart to the area – seamlessly connecting the communities of Canada Water, Rotherhithe and Surrey Quays.
The multi-phased Sellar development around the east side of Canada Water Dock will provide over 1,000 new homes with a wide range of commercial, retail and leisure uses on site. This includes the new 100,000sqft flagship Decathlon store, which opened in 2018. The entire scheme is due to complete in 2024.
TFL are consulting on an enhanced ferry service better connecting the Rotherhithe peninsula to Canary Wharf.
Surrey Quays one-way system will be changed and Lower Road will become two way as part of the Rotherithe Movement Plan.
Cycleway 4 will create a continuous segregated cycle route between Tower Bridge and Greenwich, and improve public spaces and facilities for people who are walking. The plan is to finish the Tooley Street and Jamaica Road sections in spring 2020.
New Bermondsey will redevelop a 30-acre industrial site in South Bermondsey (bordering Surrey Quays & New Cross), providing a new Overground station, over 2400 homes, extensive community facilities and upgraded public spaces, as well as an enhanced Millwall Football Club Stadium.
The planned redevelopment of the Bermondsey Biscuit Factory will provide over 1500 homes at a range of rents, in buildings of varying sizes across the neighbourhood, alongside a new secondary school facility, employment, cultural and retail spaces, knitted into the neighbourhood through a network of new landscaped spaces and convenient routes.
The Timberyard in Deptford will provide 1132 homes, green space, leisure amenities and workspace. The first phase, Cedarwood Square, is due for completion in Winter 2019/20.
Convoys Wharf will provide a seamless riverside connection between Surrey Quays and Greenwich by re-opening up a 500m disused part of the Deptford Thames Path through redeveloping a 16.6 hectare derelict brownfield site where Henry VIII founded Deptford Dockyard in 1513 – the most significant royal dockyard of the Tudor period, which remained one of the principal naval yards for 300 years. Up to 3500 new homes and other facilities will be provided.
" Toby and Tessa recently sold a property for us and we are delighted to recommend their services. They are very professional as well as being friendly and helpful at all times. We never felt we were just clients behind a reference no but human beings with needs and preferences… "
" A very refreshing change to deal with an estate/lettings agency that is so professional, organised, diligent, personable and knowledgeable. And not a pointy shoe or shiny suit in sight. The usual stereotypical estate agent persona doesn’t feature here, and what you get is an experience that is far better than with any other estate agent I’ve ever used… "
" I recently sold my apartment through Urban Patchwork, after initially listing it with an online agent that generated one viewing in three months. Within 48 hours with Urban Patchwork I had two viewings and within a week it was sold for full asking price. Toby and Tessa kept in weekly contact providing updates and working hard to ensure everything went smoothly… "
" The property had been on the market for 3 months with a typical local agent. Urban Patchwork let it within 10 days - down to better quality photos, promotional materials, and good interactions with potential tenants. And they provide free rent collection, which is a useful bonus. I like the fact that they are a social enterprise. Tessa & Toby are definitely a cut above the rest - friendly, professional, and good at what they do… "
" …From start to finish the service they provided was absolutely outstanding, I couldn’t fault it in any way. They were knowledgable about the market, very friendly and professional, and kept up the momentum on the sale the whole way through. Thank you so much! "
" Excellent letting agents - Knowledgeable, capable, trustworthy and ethical. "
" Simply The Best! Urban Patchwork genuinely acted in my best interests throughout the whole process. They were extremely professional and on top of everything. They thoroughly researched my property so that they had a really good understanding of it throughout the whole sale process. They ‘held my hand’ from start to finish. They're good people! And they're EXCELLENT estate agents. You won't be disappointed. "
" Exceptional service. When my flat became vacant it needed refurbishment. Toby helped me refine my specification of work needed, found excellent contractors and supervised the work. I was delighted with the result and appointed Toby to find me new tenants, now in occupation, and to manage the flat. His professionalism, knowledge of the industry and hard work impressed me and I would not hesitate to recommend him, Tessa and Urban Patchwork. This new agency has brought a breath of fresh air to the letting scene.. "
