This was once the site of the Bowles and Charrington Wharves, both part of the original Free Trade Wharf. The old disused warehouses were bought in 1977 by the Inner London Education Authority, for a site for the City of London Polytechnic. When this plan was abandoned, the land was acquired by Regalian Homes.

Designed by the architects Holder Mathias Alcock, the first phase of the Free Trade Wharf residential development was built in the 1980s, and the first flat was sold in 1987. The building is described as having “dramatic ziggurat-style terraces” and has often been called ‘The Lego Development’ because of its shape.
