Designed For The
‘New Green’ designed by JTP Architects acts as a gateway to Rainham Marshes. With a linear green spine providing a cycle route through from Dunedin Road to New Road, planting that echoes the natural fauna and flora of the marshes and high-quality design fit for Rainham’s new generation and beyond.
The three buildings are designed to complement and elevate New Road. Subtle brick-work variances, distinctive metalwork to the balconies and large floor to ceiling windows. Staggered heights work to echo the patterns of nearby streets. The façade on Dunedin Road follows the pattern of the street’s low-rise houses, while New Road offers more urban proportions and rises ten-storeys high.
Focussing on residents’ wellbeing and biodiversity, the private podium gardens provide areas to gather to socialise, reflect and breathe.
Continuing the area’s connection with New Zealand, each building will have a name that reflects the neighbourhood’s close association with the country – which dates as far back as the 1800s.
Rainham is a refreshing urban destination where ancient village charm meets modern day industry, bordered by the Thames estuary and the nature reserves of Rainham Marshes. Well connected to central London, yet offering access to green space, plentiful wildlife, and bustling local towns such as Romford, Upminster and Hornchurch provide for everyday needs.
Forming part of the Thames Gateway Redevelopment area, technological initiatives such as Future Cube are just the start of Rainham’s exciting period of regeneration which will take the area into a new chapter over the next decade.
Visit. Stay. Work. Play
Rainham has roots in the area’s Saxon past, but much of the appeal comes from recent regeneration projects. A £4m+ library development and a contemporary new youth centre both reflect the age of families living here. Upgrades to transport links and the arrival of C2C, make it the perfect location from which to access wider London.
The National Trust’s Rainham Hall is a beautiful example of Queen Anne architecture, retaining many period features from it’s origins of 1729. Surrounded by peaceful gardens and an evolving exhibition programme. Nearby, public artwork Railing Hall, which echoes the Georgian Townhouse, is a refined civic space for locals and day-trippers alike.
Rainham is a great place to develop creative ideas, and work locally. Many of these projects are brought to life in Future Cube, a brand new innovation centre in which small-to-medium enterprises are supported and their growth accelerated.
Havering is an ideal place to establish a new business – cited as one of London’s start up hot-spots. Alternatively, it is well located to enable you to access central London within a short time.
