New Caledonian Wharf is a luxury gated community in the Rotherhithe area of London on the River Thames.

History[edit]

The wharf was originally known as Redriff Wharf and continued to be a commercial wharf until the late 70s. It was located adjacent to Greenland Dock and part of the Surrey Docks, though it was directly accessible from the river. After falling into disrepair, Rosehaugh acquired the site in 1989 and redeveloped it into 104 flats together with architects Shepheard Epstein Hunter.

The building benefits from a large central courtyard, which includes a fountain. The community has use of a private gym and swimming pool, available only to the residents and their guests. The wharf also has 24-hour portage.

Many of the flats in the wharf benefit from balconies looking over the Thames, with the views stretching from Greenwich to Canary Wharf.
