SUSTAINABLE AND FORWARD THINKING

A sustainable development built with future generations in mind.

Crown Wharf proposes a masterplan that is ambitious in its approach to sustainability and is built to last for future generations.

We’re aiming to achieve the highest industry standards for sustainability and are exploring lots of different initiatives here, including:

Soft landscaping features such as rain gardens, green roofs and permeable paving to help mitigate flooding risk

Recycled materials to create a design that reflects the area’s industrial past whilst bringing in new greenery and public spaces

Solar panels and air source heat pumps

A car free development, except for blue badge holders, encouraging sustainable modes of transport

Excellent provisions for cyclists, with a large number of cycle parking spaces and a new cycle route along the River Lea

Support local biodiversity

Our commitment to sustainability is linked to our formal partnership with the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB). This helps guarantee that our developments not only comply with current biodiversity requirements but will help deliver our longer term ambitions.

This commitment is at the forefront of our design approach, considering the site’s position in relation to the Bow Creek Ecology Park.
