The first apartments at a major housing development in Silvertown, which will have 295 homes across four buildings, are set to go on sale.

Pontoon Reach, in Thames Road adjacent to North Woolwich Road, will feature a mix of studio flats, homes with one to three bedrooms and duplex apartments set over two floors. 

Housebuilder Redrow and housing association Peabody, which have partnered on the development, expect the first homes to be completed this summer. 

The 69 homes in the River Walk building will be available to buy from January 16.

These homes are eligible for the London Help to Buy scheme, which gives first-time buyers access to a 40 per cent, five-year equity-free loan from the government. 

Redrow Greater London sales director Neil Bowron said: “The Royal Docks has transformed dramatically in recent years into a thriving residential neighbourhood with excellent connectivity to Canary Wharf, the City and beyond. 

“The much-anticipated release of Pontoon Reach by two of the UK’s leading developers brings high quality homes, where first-time buyers will also have the rare opportunity to purchase using Help to Buy, making these homes even more accessible to Londoners.”

“We are very pleased to be bringing much-needed new homes to the capital alongside Redrow and helping to create further opportunity for aspiring first time buyers to start their homeownership journey at an affordable level.”  

Prices at Pontoon Reach start at £330,000.
