Making our home and area a better place

“Making our Home and Area a Better Place”

The NPWLRA welcomes you to the residential community of New Providence Wharf which comprises the residential blocks of New Providence Wharf, Michigan Building, Ontario Tower, Charrington Tower and Columbia West. There are a total of 1259 private individual apartments on the NPW Estate.

The New Providence Wharf Leaseholders and Residents Association (NPWLRA) is a legally recognised Residents Association and represents all the leaseholders and residents in the residential blocks of New Providence Wharf, Michigan Building, Ontario Tower, Charrington Tower and Columbia West. The Constitution of the NPWLRA was adopted on the 17th November 2015, and the Residents Association was fully recognised by the NPW Landlords, Ballymore (January 2018) and Blazecourt (March 2018).

Our primary aim is to ensure that our properties and investments retain their value and that we remain one of the most sought out residential locations in our area. We endeavour to represent the best interests of leaseholders at all times and seek to balance quality with cost in our engagement with the managing agents.

The leaseholders may raise any issues that arise with us that they are unable to resolve bilaterally with the managing agents and we will endeavour to represent those issues with the managing agents Ballymore Asset Management. A well run and effective Residents Association is in everyone’s interest. Our strength is in our membership and our organisation. We would strongly advise all leaseholders that it is in their best interests to join the NPWLRA. We advise you to  register here!

The NPWLRA as a recognised RA has appointed a Surveyor to support its work to hold the managing agents to account. We would advise all leaseholders that its in their best interest to support the RA’s ongoing work with the appointed Surveyor. Contact us by emailing: npwlra@outlook.com
