Hackney scheme revives its former industrial setting
Organised by The Sunday Times, the awards are held annually to celebrate and commend excellence in new homes across the country, with top homebuilders and developers competing for sought after accolades.

Reviving a former industrial setting in the London Borough of Hackney, City Wharf comprises of 327 one, two, three and four-bedroom modern apartments overlooking the adjacent Wenlock Basin.

City Wharf has been designed by Stephen Marshall Architects in a warehouse style that articulates the area’s past as a thriving centre for timber production in the 1800s.

Located on Wharf Road, next to the Wenlock Basin, an extension of the Regent’s Canal, City Wharf benefits from the waterside setting whilst being close to the boutiques, theatres, pop up bars and café culture of Islington and Shoreditch.

Darrell Mercer, Chief Executive of A2Dominion, said:

“We’re extremely proud to receive the Best Apartment Building award for City Wharf.”

“The development has been an enormous success, providing high quality housing for a variety of different tenures and rejuvenating a barren industrial area into a thriving community within the London Borough of Hackney”.

This latest commendation adds to A2Dominion’s award wins in 2016, which includes winning Outstanding Landlord of the Year (UK Housing Awards), silver for the Best Apartment (Evening Standard New Homes Awards) and silver for Landlord of the Year (RESI Awards).

A2Dominion completed 1,127 new homes last year and now manages more than 36,000 homes in London and the South East and plans to develop a further 4,500 by 2020.
