The Lighterman is a residential development designed by Carey Jones Chapman Tolcher, on behalf of Knight Dragon. The scheme consists of 3 elements, a 24 storey tower orientated to take advantage of the East to West long range views, and 2 smaller courtyard buildings which are located next to the Thames path and again take advantage of the stunning riverside views. The scheme provides 224 high quality residential apartments of which 55% are allocated for affordable housing.

The project started onsite in May 2015 and it has been developed in phases. The social and intermediate buildings are due to be completed in November 2016 whilst the 24 storey high tower will be finished in May 2017.

The scheme is part of the exciting Peninsula Riverside and it communicates with the neighbouring developments via a beautifully designed public area. The landscape design is by Turkington Martin and the adjoining plots were designed by DSDHA and Pilbrow and Partners.
