Alex Neil were established in 1984 and have been operating successfully as Tower Bridge Estate Agents providing residential sales and lettings services.
In the 18th century the area directly south of the bridge quickly became the world’s largest industrial port. A huge number of warehouses were created to offload and load worldwide goods. Eventually Tower Bridge was opened in 1894 in response to the rising population of East London and demand for a new Thames crossing.
Congestion and the arrival of containerised shipping caused the docks to reposition to deeper water and consequently the warehouses surrounding Tower Bridge were closed. However, a mass redevelopment phase in the 80’s and 90’s brought business back into the area and many of the warehouses were converted into bars, restaurants, shops and expensive flats.
Shad Thames, once the largest warehouse complex in London, continues to develop and are a popular living destination. Most of the warehouses are named after the goods which used to be stored in them – Cayenne Court, Wheat Wharf, Tea Trade Wharf – and they maintain many original features.
There are excellent transport links
surrounding Tower Bridge with the Northern Line providing services to the City and beyond, and the Jubilee Line connecting to Canary Wharf and the West End. Plus, there are plenty of Overgound stations and bus routes.
