On 15th June 2017, Ballymore will launch Goodluck Hope, a new riverside neighbourhood comprising of 804 homes located directly on the River Thames at the historic Leamouth Peninsula.

Goodluck Hope is the latest development from Ballymore, which has a strong footprint in East London, delivering some of the most ambitious regeneration schemes in the area. Having transformed Leamouth North with the creation of London City Island, which is set to become one of London’s leading arts and cultural destinations, Goodluck Hope in Leamouth South completes the landscape at Leamouth Peninsula, making the whole island area a landmark in riverside living.

The architecture and exterior design of Goodluck Hope is drawn from the areas previous incarnation, evident in the forms, patterns and colours of the bricks from the central street of Orchard Place to the restored Grade II listed Dry Dock and each of the surrounding buildings to create a cohesive, contemporary design aesthetic.
Representing a modern interpretation of warehouse living with floor to ceiling windows and generous open plan rooms, the proportions and apartment sizes have been designed with a focus on clean lines and materials that have luxurious warmth to them as well as a contemporary edge. The open plan kitchen and dining area feature a bespoke stone island with dining table alongside uniquely designed brass faucet taps, carrying the Goodluck Hope maker’s mark, a symbol of craft and ingenuity and Ballymore’s attention to the finer details.
Maximising the riverside location and industrial maritime heritage, residents of Goodluck Hope are surrounded by water at every turn, with riverside promenades offering spectacular panoramic views of the city.
