Developed by Bellway Homes and completed in 2005. Boardwalk Place is one of the closest residential developments to the Canary Wharf in Docklands. Ideally situated for travel, the development is a few minutes walk from the Jubilee Line tube station and the three DLR stations of Blackwall, Poplar and Canary Wharf itself. It is a short drive from the Blackwall Tunnel and City Airport and is very well served by all the bus routes on the island.
Surrounded by water, with Poplar Dock to the east and the Grade 1 listed Blackwall Basin to the south, Boardwalk Place was conceived in the Nineties. The 408 apartments and townhouses are totally privately owned and of a very low density compared to most other Docklands developments. This means there are more gardens and open spaces to enjoy and that the apartments are very spacious compared to later developments in the area.
The iconic boardwalk, complete with signature neon lighting, names the development and leads out over Blackwall Basin. Both docks have picturesque residential riverboats adding to the heritage of the site, as well as the history of the old cranes on Poplar Dock.
Boardwalk Place is a three-minute walk to the businesses, shopping malls, gyms, bars and restaurants of Canary Wharf, ideally situated for both work and pleasure.
