Grosvenor Waterside is built around a dock which was originally a waterway (The Grosvenor Canal) stretching from the Thames to Victoria Station. This waterway, which opened in 1823, provided the Chelsea Waterworks Company with its water supply. It was the last functioning canal to close in London, being used as late as the 1990’s for commercial purposes. The development of the new Victoria rail route in the mid 19th century lead to most of the canal being built over, and by June 1860 the first railway bridge was built over the Thames, providing access to the area which had previously been made up of the canal. It was further reduced by the addition of Victoria platforms 15 to 19. In the year 2000, Westminster Council granted planning permission to redevelop the disused Grosvenor Canal and the Grosvenor Waterside development was born.
The development was intended to be seen as a new cultural hub of Chelsea, combining history, art and urban architecture. The development is centred around a beautiful, tranquil water feature and the 24 hour concierge, underground parking and its close proximity to the Thames have resulted in Grosvenor Waterside becoming a popular, desirable development for purchasers and renters alike. The transport links of Victoria are almost on your doorstep, the shops and restaurants of Chelsea and Belgravia are both within a few minutes’ walk and the wonderful views of the Thames from the Chelsea Embankment are a short stroll away.
