A batch of 40 luxury apartments at the massive Goodluck Hope development on the Leamouth Peninsular near Canary Wharf has just gone on the market more than two years before the scheme is finished.

The development being built by Ballymore Homes at the Lea estuary where it flows into the Thames will have 800 apartments in tower blocks when it is ready by 2020.

It has unrivalled views of central London and is surrounded by water on three sides with the iconic Canary Wharf skyline on the fourth.

A Thames Clipper jetty is being added with the riverbus service due to run regularly from next year, taking 15 minutes to the City and 25 to Westminster.

The architecture is drawn from earlier maritime and dockside heritage of the Isle of Dogs with the restored Grade II-listed Orchard Dry Dock at the heart of the development being restored as an open space.

The scheme includes the Island Grocer delicatessen and restaurant and the Wharf Brewing Company on the site of the old Orchard House pub with locally-brewed beers and its own school of brewing.
