Located on a triangular site in Canning Town between Barking Road and Newham Way (A13), Phase 1 of Rathbone Market, Vermilion provides 271 new homes.
The development is leading the regeneration of the local area and includes an eco-garden with a green wall to deflect noise and pollution from the adjacent A13, 12 rooftop allotments for residents and 22,000sq ft of commercial space. The layout of the development is composed of three adjoining blocks, one of which has penthouse apartments that offer stunning panoramic views towards the Millennium Dome, Canary Wharf and The City. The whole of the scheme is ‘wrapped’ in bands of differing shades of vibrant reds.
