Gun Place, 86 Wapping Lane, Wapping, E1W 2RX



THE ORIGINAL BUILDING

Gun Place is a relatively modern warehouse, constructed in the 1920s by Lichfield and Soundry. Gun Place was part of a group of buildings incorporating what is now Gun Wharf on the other side of the street, and together called 'Gun Wharves'.

Gun Wharf is built from standard stock brick.There are wide openings at ground floor level to allow wagons to carry produce through the inside. There are original girder hoists and cranes on the exterior of Gun Place.


MODERN FLATS

Barratt East London converted Gun Wharves to residential use in 1986. Frank Timothy and Crawley Hodgson were the designers.

When the warehouses were converted to residential use balconies were inserted in the original loading bays and many of the windows were replaced.


MANAGEMENT

I do not know who owns the freehold of Gun Place. But in 1985 a long lease of the building until 2111 was granted by the then freeholder of Gun Place, Moran Tea Holdings plc, to Barrratt East London Ltd. Since 2008 that long leasehold interest in Gun Place has been owned by Proxima GR Properties Limited (Co. Regn. No. 3829939). Proxima is the immediate landlord to the flat owners in Gun Place.
