As Starbucks fit-out commences, further details of Sainsbury's Local emerges

With construction underway on the fit-out of the Starbucks at the north-east corner of the Royal Wharf development, Royal Wharf News can reveal further details of the Sainsbury's Local located at the bottom of Masthead House on Royal Crest Avenue.

A planning application from March 2017 provides some further details of the planned shopfront for the Sainsbury's Local, complete with an ATM for the development. 

Shopfront layout which received planning permission

While the plans posted on the Newham Council website suggest the shopfront will display opening times of 7am to 11pm everyday, Royal Wharf News understands these are likely to be illustrative only to seek planning approval.

Residents and visitors to the development will have noticed that the fit-out of the Starbucks at the northeast corner of the development, close to Pontoon Dock DLR Station and the Security Lodge is progressing apace.

In addition, online job adverts have popped up for supervisors and trainee baristas specifically for the Starbucks at Royal Wharf.

Our understanding is that both Sainsbury's and Starbucks are planning to be open for business by the second week of December.
