From timber yard to craft yard – a masterplan that celebrates the area’s industrial heritage and brings forward opportunities for East London’s entrepreneurs.

Given the strategic nature of this site in the Local Plan, providing modern, flexible and high-quality new employment space is one of the key drivers behind the Crown Wharf masterplan. Industrial use is in the site’s past, but it can also form part of its future, through the creation of medium and small employment spaces.

East London is a booming place for artists, makers and craftspeople, who are in need of flexible affordable space to work and create. Crown Wharf will support this important sector of the local economy through the provision of 2,300sqm of light industrial and commercial space.

The employment space has been carefully designed with genuine flexibility to meet the spatial, design and specifications of a wide range of different occupiers.

This includes:

Light Industrial

Maker space

Office and studios

Green industries

Hybrid tech / office requirements


Barratt’s commitment to local workers

The development will unlock a significant number of jobs and apprenticeships from construction to delivery and operation and we are committed to working closely with Newham Council and Our Newham Work to ensure that a large proportion of these employment and training opportunities are taken up by local people in the Borough.
