The Existing Site

Located a 5-minute walk from Barking town centre, the Quayside Barking site is bounded by the River Roding to the east, hotels and the Highbridge Road to the west, London Road to the north and the River Roding basin and residential development under construction to the south. The site comprises a 4,960 sqm Tesco store, associated car parking and a petrol filling station.

The Roding Riverside has seen a number of regeneration projects in recent years including Barking Wharf (Apo Barking) which was delivered by EcoWorld London. We want to positively contribute to this thriving neighbourhood with Quayside Barking.


Planning permission has already been granted for a residential development on the southern portion of the application site, comprising 514 homes in buildings up to 23 storeys. EcoWorld London, working with Tesco, is now bringing forward a proposal for a comprehensive masterplan for the whole site that better connects the neighbouring areas and provides more benefits for the local community.

The site is situated in a highly sustainable location; approximately a five-minute walk from Barking town centre and 10 minutes from Barking station and is allocated for development.

Barking station provides exceptional transport connections via bus train and tube.  A multi-million-pound station upgrade is also planned to increase capacity, improve station concourse and traveller experience.
