The Hoola Project, London

Hoola is a new residential development in London’s Royal Docks consisting of 360 individually designed apartments in two iconic towers, set in their own landscaped garden. Hoola has been designed to have as little environmental impact on the area in which it sits as possible which will make it one of the greenest buildings in the world which PUDLO is excited to be a part of.

Located adjacent to the historic Royal Victoria Dock, it marks the gateway to London’s Royal Docks, an area which is set for major regeneration over the next few years.

Royal Victoria Dock is part of the Royal Docks, the largest enclosed dock system in the world with a water area of nearly 250 acres. When it was built, Royal Victoria was state of the art: the first London dock big enough to accommodate the new iron steamships, and the first to have its own railway link, a route which today is part of the DLR and will be incorporated into Crossrail. The docks gradually fell into decline after the 1960s and were mostly derelict by the 1980s.

Today the docks are receiving a new lease of life with significant changes being made, which will capitalise on their large areas of open water and excellent transport connections. Exciting future proposals include major mixed use developments, a floating shopping village, and a new business park. Hoola is perfectly located at the heart of this ongoing transformation.
