Only a few decades ago, Canary Wharf was just a network of long-abandoned industrial docks. Now it’s a buzzing business and residential district, its cloud-skimming buildings full of state-of-the-art new-build apartments, hotel rooms and offices. The location often referred to as Canary Wharf consists of the 97 acre Canary Wharf Estate owned and run by The Canary Wharf Group and the wider Isle of Dogs area on the peninsula. Whilst the estate is Canary Wharf, home to a working population of over 120,000 people, many of the developments on the Isle of Dogs peninsula also market themselves as Canary Wharf and have been included in this guide. Read on to discover the developments that are rated as the best places to live in Canary Wharf and to see reviews from residents who own or rent in Canary Wharf.
The development is 5 minutes from the Canary Wharf station where you have access to the Jubilee Line and the DLR. There will be an Elizabeth line soon which will allow you to get to Oxford Circus in 15 minutes or Heathrow airport in 45 minutes. The development is in a great location, with a shopping centre nearby and an Amazon Fresh and Waitrose. There are lots of great restaurants from Shake Shack to Roka and Wagamama. Plenty of open space for you to walk in the park or walk along the dockside and have a picnic.
Please review your development:
All residents have access to a residential lounge and a media room. One of the great things about this development is the residential terrace which overlooks the docks and the Canary Wharf skyline. You get to admire the beautiful 1 Park Drive building next door and see other residential buildings being constructed.
The concierge team is fantastic and is always available 24/7.
