Jamestown Harbour

No.13 Landons Close is one of the premier apartments situated within the Jamestown Harbour Development. It boasts unrivalled views across Poplar Marina, private and secluded communal gardens as well as views overlooking Blackwall Marina and Canary Wharf.


Jamestown Harbour is an unusually low density development and sits on the eastern edge of the Canary Wharf estate between Poplar and Blackwall Marinas.


Landons Close feels like a quiet mews, a rarity amongst the hotel style, high rise complexes within the Canary Wharf area.


Designed by WCEC Architects for the Wates Group and built in 1985, Jamestown Harbour was one of the first housing developments of the original Docklands regeneration scheme. With its brick built warehouse style exterior and generous apartment sizes it is a hidden gem among the new developments around Canary Wharf.

It hasn’t gone unnoticed either.

A recent article in the Wharf newspaper highlighted the development and particularly singled out no. 13!

The development lies between Polar Marina, Blackwall Basin and the old lock from the Thames into West India Docks. Whichever window you look out from you will see water. The apartment also benefits from its own private entrance to the beautiful and mature private garden.


Poplar Marina, formerly Poplar Dock, was built in 1851. The old hydraulic accumulator towers, which were built in 1877, still stand today, one of which can be found at the entrance to Landons Close. The tower is a historic monument to Poplar Dock’s past, although it now provides a large storage area for residents, housing the odd canoe or boat! This Grade 2 listed tower has recently been given a listed building grant so it can undergo necessary renovations.


Management

Jamestown Harbour is managed by Mountpoint for Mulberry Management Ltd, a company which is owned by the residents of Jamestown Harbour and a share of which comes with the property.


The summer of 2010 saw Jamestown Harbour undergo a major facelift, with all external areas refurbished and painted. Fourth quarter 2012 will see all the internal communal areas re decorated and recarpeted.
