“The worst enemy to creativity is self-doubt.” ― Sylvia Plath@silvertownldn
Silvertown is a new piece of city in London’s Royal Docks for people to make, show and share.
Silvertown is not a place for everyone. It is a place for people who want to reshape their world. It is for those who invent, create, break and make.
Silvertown is an effect. Businesses rethink, people take part and create a different kind of community. A making, showing and sharing community.
Buildings reinvented. Spaces activated. And openness, wellness, curiosity, collision and collaboration are the order of the day.
Silvertown was born more than a century ago. A place of invention, Silvertown led the way in nautical engineering and new ways of milling. Waterproof clothing and indersea cables were also born here.
Today, Silvertown is in the next stage of innovation and invention.
Silvertown will reinvent the ‘atelier’ on a grand scale – creating a place where people who make things, show and share them.
Silvertown sits in the heart of London’s future – the East – between Canary Wharf , The O2 and London City Airport, within the historic Royal Docks. Local, regional and international travel is on the doorstep with DLR, Crossrail and City Airport minutes away.
The Silvertown Partnership (Chelsfield Properties, First Base and Macquarie Capital) are taking forward the reinvention of Silvertown.
Collectively the team has delivered 8 out of 14 of London’s largest developments including Stratford City, Broadgate, Ludgate Circus, Chiswick Park, Stockley Park and Waterloo.
From grain to meat to all variety of spices and foodstuffs, even exotic animals for London Zoo, the variety was staggering. Industry and innovation has always thrived at Silvertown.
In 1852 Samuel Winkworth Silver unintentionally kick-started the internet. By casing copper wire in rubber for submarine cabling at his India Rubber, Gutta Percha and Telegraph Cable Company he laid the foundations for broadband capability and ultimately the world wide web.
Silvertown’s pontoon docks pioneered new and faster ways to service boats and speed up maritime trade and the flour mills pioneered new milling techniques and higher quality flour products.
Silvertown sits in the heart of London’s future, sandwiched between Canary Wharf and London City Airport and sitting within the historic Royal Docks.
Silvertown has fast and efficient transport options, with London and internationally, across land, water and air. London City Airport is next to Silvertown and offers flights for more than 60,00 passengers every week.
The real game changer is Crossrail and Silvertown is a three-minute walk from Custom House station. It will significantly reduce travel times to Canary Wharf, the City, West End and Heathrow Airport.
The Silvertown Partnership comprises Chelsfield Properties, First Base and Macquarie Capital.
Responsible for 8 out of 14 of London’s largest commercial and mixed-use regeneration projects, the team has outstanding place-making credentials, including: Stratford City, Broadgate, Ludgate Circus, Chiswick Park, Stockley Park and Waterloo.
Macquarie is a leading provider of banking, financial, advisory, investment and funds management services. Founded in 1969, Macquarie now employs more than 13,900 people in 28 countries. At 31 March 2014, Macquarie had assets under management of $US396 billion.
First Base is an influential London developer and investor, focused on delivering buildings and places that meet the changing needs of Londoners. Every First Base project is award winning for design, construction and creation of place, and importantly, has provided a lasting legacy for many years to come.
Chelsfield Properties is a leading real estate company and asset manager focused primarily on the principal cities of Europe and Asia. Since 1986 the business has constantly evolved to encompass and develop emerging market practices.
Silvertown spaces are innovative and inventive. New types of buildings, new configurations, new layouts, for a new era of making, showing, and sharing.
Specially designed and run as a home for 150 pioneering businesses to come together. All sorts. All sizes. Big with big ambitions, small with bigger ambitions. In spaces to create and collaborate with each other.
Showcase and Share
Flexible space for organisations who want to showcase what they do. Buildings specifically created to engage their people, their neighbours and the public beyond the street.
Space for businesses who want to show more and enable customers to do more. A place to test and try out.
For people who want to be part of and live in a making, showing and sharing community.
Silvertown will be a place which celebrates the history and heritage of the past and welcomes the vision of the future.
We have been getting to know our existing local community and together we have put together exciting plans for what will be coming to Silvertown.
Listening and responding will continue throughout the coming months and years and we look forward to continuing to work together. We will be running more community events as our plans move forward and working to boost local employment. We’ll also be working to ensure all our builders and contractors are considerate of local neighbours in the work they do.
