Eastern Quay
Eastern Quay Apartments is in Royal Victoria Dock, East London Constructed between April 2002 and November 2003, Eastern Quay Apartments were built at a cost of £10.75m. The building sits adjacent to the site earmarked for Silvertown Quays - a large £100m regeneration project which will include Britain's first purpose-built national aquarium, Biota!. Eastern Quay was designed by Gardner Stewart Architects, and constructed by Morrisons. Standing 12-stories high, it is constructed with a concrete and steel frame. It is one of the first residential apartment blocks in the United Kingdom to have fully-glazed exterior walls. The increased solar-gain on such a building is reduced by a combination of integrated design and advanced glazing technology. The building has a 1.8m wide terrace that wraps around the entire floor, a dual-purpose design providing generous terraces to each apartment and providing shade to the unit below. Furthermore, Low-emissivity glazing which is spectrally selective in order to minimize solar heat gain is installed across the building. The apartment block is located on an east-west axis, exactly 1 km east of the GMT line. The apartments on the north side overlook Royal Victoria Dock and the ExCeL Exhibition Centre, while apartments on the south side overlook the River Thames. Eastern Quay won various awards from construction, including one from the Chartered Institute of Building. In the summer of 2003, the London Evening Standard gave away one of the new-built apartments in its annual summer 'Win a £250,000 Home' competition. The building and its surrounding land are frequently used for TV and Film locations; notably Channel 4, the BBC's 'Life on Mars' and ITV drama The Bill.

Transport
Eastern Quay is served by three Docklands Light Railway stations, all of which are equidistant - Pontoon Dock, West Silvertown and Custom House. The building has 42 underground parking spaces and 12 external spaces. The surrounding area is run by Newham council and is free of parking restrictions. Eastern Quay is on the take off and approach corridor to London City Airport and as such is frequently exposed to aircraft noise from 6:30 to 21:00.
