area is obviously extremely well-connected, with the Jubilee Underground Line, two Docklands Light Railway stations, and the Thames River Bus pier nearby, as well as being in close proximity to the London City Airport. With the imminent arrival of Crossrail, this is only set to improve.

The area is a prime destination for retail and cultural enthusiasts

alike, offering a swathe of shops, restaurants, bars, and the capital’s largest collection of outdoor public art, receiving numerous awards for its collection.

The estate hosts a variety events, with over 200 cultural, arts and entertainment proceedings each year. Residents and visitors can experience plays, live music, markets, fashion shows, ice skating and more throughout the seasons. Canary Wharf is already home to a diverse array of plants, birds, and aquatic life, including a resident seal, and the development’s green areas are likely to enhance this. The views and amenities available to residents include the riverside, nearby parks, and landscaped gardens kept by the Canary Wharf Group itself. Brian De’Ath added: “Residents will benefit from the high levels of maintenance, as well as service and security. “This area is so exciting precisely because it is our first

residential neighbourhood, and will create new affordable housing, schools, a doctors’ surgery and high street shops.”

RECEPTION The Canary Wharf Group has already achieved what has been called ‘one of the greatest ever feats of civic engineering’, turning once derelict dockland space into one of the capital’s main hubs to work, shop and enjoy leisure time. The new district is far from completion, but has already been well-received by buyers in what remains a high-demand market, and it’s easy to see why. No expense has been spared, with the Canary Wharf Group aiming to create a very desirable set of residences in the form of One Park Drive, and an exclusive community more widely. Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan has expressed his approval of the huge scheme: “Canary Wharf Group has begun to create a new part of London, with exciting designs that will have a profound effect on how our great city looks.

“The key role played by Herzog & de Meuron in helping shape this new district confirms that London is open to ideas, innovation and talent from around the word.” It is clear that there’s a major residential future ahead for Canary

Wharf. No longer will it be confined to just retail and office space, or known only as one of the UK’s two main financial centres. The Canary Wharf Group’s new district is creating a community and a home out of this famous, compact location, providing those with the budget a chance to enjoy both bustling city living, and the relative tranquility of life by the riverside. The first phase of the new development will follow the arrival of Crossrail in December.
