Butler's Wharf in London, United Kingdom, which was designed by James Tolley and Daniel Dale in the 19th century as a shipping wharf and warehouse complex. It fell into a state of disuse and then dereliction. Butler's Wharf is now transformed into luxury flats, with restaurants and shops on the ground floor.
The whole project spanned a decade, beginning with the master plan and progressing in stages. A number of warehouses, including the pivotal Butler’s Wharf building itself, were restored, with retail and restaurants at ground level and apartments above.
The conversion of the main building, now known as 34 Shad Thames, which was carried out to a design by Conrad Roche, was completed in 1989. The conversion of the Clove Building, which was carried out to a design by Allies and Morrison and was completed in 1990 and the conversion of Tea Trade Wharf, which was carried out to a design by OSEL Architecture, was completed in 2003.
Tea Trade Wharf is a superior collection of apartments within a preserved 19th century building, just moments from Tower Bridge and the historic shopping street, Shad Thames.
The development is themed by its magnificent seven-storey atrium and striking warehouse exterior, which has been retained as part of its 21st century transformation. Superior specifications adorn Tea Trade Wharf’s selection of apartments and penthouses, whilst features such as industrial-style, exposed brick walls nod to the building’s nautical heritage. Residents’ facilities include a 24-hour concierge, plus access to the on-site health and fitness centre at neighbouring Cayenne Court.
