New Crane Wharf, Wapping High Street, Wapping, E1W 3TU



THE ORIGINAL BUILDING

New Crane Wharf as it is today is made up of a number of original warehouse buildings known as 'E', 'F', 'G' and 'H' warehouses, and No. 82 New Crane Wharf. These warehouses formed a group with what was originally warehouse 'A' of Metropolitan Wharf next door.

'E', 'F', 'G' and 'H' warehouses were built in 1880 along Wapping Wall. They are basically six storeys high, and constructed in stock bricks in the late Victorian 'Italianate' style.

No. 82 was built at around the turn-of-the-century in an L-shape along the river. It was constructed partly in stock bricks with engineering brick decoration.


MODERN FLATS

The warehouses were converted to flats and commercial premises by Heron Homes in the mid-1990s and called New Crane Wharf.

The courtyard is New Crane Court.


MANAGEMENT

New Crane Wharf Freehold Limited (Co. Regn. No. 03022504) became the freeholder of New Crane Wharf in 1995. Since the registered office is a flat in New Crane Wharf, and given the very specific name, I assume this company was a vehicle for New Crane Wharf's flat owners to buy the freehold.
