Five towers cut like prisms alongside the rolling River Thames. At their feet, pavement cafes, bars, destination restaurants and a sculptural 5km running trail, all with views of the water, creating an atmosphere to rival the Southbank.

There’ll be landscaped gardens for you to relax in and be inspired by. To socialise in. To feel at home in. To take you outside of the city and into another world. There’ll be sky-high rooftop spaces open to all residents. All around you, moments and places for you to experience the elements. Some are private and some are shared. Above you only sky.

This is Upper Riverside, Greenwich Peninsula’s latest emerging neighbourhood.

Each building in Upper Riverside has a subtly distinct glass and honeyed stone facade that creates a stunning illusion of translucency as angles change across the exterior.

A stepped geometric design brings an unusual quality of light and dual aspect vistas to the apartment. The orientation to the river exposes living spaces to river views and maximum daylight continued from the warm timber balconies facing the waterfront.

Upper Riverside has been designed by architects SOM, a world leader in high-rise architecture and creator of Dubai’s Burj Khalifa and the new World Trade Centre in New York.

Internal spaces respond to the unique geometry and location of the building, prioritising comfort, light and space.

Restful tones and cool, smooth surfaces draw light inside. Full height sliding windows frame stunning river views. Polished marble, subtle woods and glossy panels complement a modern palette choice of dark or light. Fixtures and fittings speak of solidity and craftsmanship and every apartment has a private outdoor balcony or terrace.

You’ll find shared spaces to relax in, socialise in and meet your neighbours. In Upper Riverside you get something special, five elegant buildings brimming with urban amenities, including:

  • Gyms, a swimming pool and steam room.
  • Cinema and games rooms.
  • Multiple terraces, roof gardens and sun deck.
  • Dining room, dinner terrace and BBQ space.
  • Residents lounges and honesty bars.
  • Meeting rooms, library and co-working areas.

There’s also our renew floor, a whole space dedicated to getting and feeling your best, through relaxing with other people and giving your wellbeing a bit of attention. Exclusively designed by Tom Dixon, it’s hard to decide whether it’s the gym and pool in this private spa or the gorgeous terrace views that make your heart healthier.
