: Allies and MorrisonGoodluck Hope is the unique residential-led development of 804 homes on Leamouth Peninsula, creating an island neighbourhood of apartments, lofts and townhouses, set between a series of landscaped courtyards and slipways. The industrial-inspired design, world-class amenities and excellent connectivity make this scheme unique, cementing its place as London’s most exciting new riverfront development.
The scheme launched on 15th June 2017, with Douglass Tower, the 29-floor pinnacle of Goodluck Hope’s residential offering, launching in 2018. First completions were in 2020, and the final phase of construction completes in summer 2022. Goodluck Hope spans 2.7 hectares, surrounded by water on three sides. The contemporary homes are complemented by 1,900 sq m commercial space, 14,000 sq m retail space and 400 sq m education space. Designed to reflect the industrial heritage of this location, the architecture is a modern interpretation of the warehouse typology that once dominated this area, innovatively delivered yet sympathetic to the local vernacular. Developer Ballymore approached several challenges with pioneering solutions: to achieve swift construction on this narrow peninsula, Ballymore implemented the Byldis prefabricated building system for high performance façade composition, reduced site deliveries and a condensed build process. The façade and windows are also extremely thermally-efficient, reducing the need for active heating and cooling, and offering sustainable heat and noise insulation. Goodluck Hope’s collection of immersive leisure amenities named The 1595 Club, proximity to key transport links, and tranquil waterfront location provides a holistic lifestyle offering, meeting the requirements of modern life.
