A Hammersmith renaissance with riverside homes at Queens Wharf

Queen's Wharf, next to Hammersmith Bridge, is set to become a new waterfront hub, with 165 flats alongside the revitalised Riverside Studios.

Hammersmith is undergoing a renaissance, with a high street facelift and moves to reunite the town centre with the Thames. The district's thin strip of riverside is a continuation of Chiswick Mall, a remarkably tranquil section of the Thames, with a clutch of boat clubs and one of London's oldest and most charming pubs, The Dove, originally a Georgian coffee house.

Queen's Wharf, next to listed Hammersmith Bridge, is set to become a new waterfront hub, with 165 flats, above, alongside revitalised Riverside Studios, the famous television production centre where the original Doctor Who series was made in the Sixties.



The old studios are making way for state-of-the-art new studios plus a cinema, café and restaurant. The low-rise apartment building spans 110 yards of river frontage and has podium gardens plus a communal rooftop terrace with views of the Surrey Bend, a twist in the Thames made famous by the annual Oxford versus Cambridge Boat Race. Prices from £540,000. For more information, call CBRE on 0845 982 5482
