I’ve been on the lookout for a home in the Canary Wharf area, and Charrington ticked all the boxes. The facilities are amazing. We visited the health suite and the rooftop garden, and these are some of the best views I’ve seen in London since I moved here. There’s a nice friendly feel to the wider area, and the apartments are airy and modern. Very pleased.
Charrington Tower, formerly known as Providence Tower, is the flagship structure of renowned development, New Providence Wharf. This slick, multi-level property is close to the heart of Canary Wharf, set some 400 metres back from the Thames riverside. Its residents are extremely well connected, with Blackwall and Canary Wharf stations within walking or cycling distance, and London City Airport a 10-minute drive away.
The development embodies a true sense of sophistication. Its 43 storeys comprise of one, two and three-bedroom apartments. These are high-spec homes with high price tags, but the aesthetics are suitably elegant and contemporary. Apartments are open-plan, with floor-to-ceiling windows, soothing neutral paintwork, and immaculately done-out kitchens with integrated appliances. Each home comes with a minimum of one private balcony offering superb London views.
The focus on luxury extends to the onsite facilities. For stress-free living, there’s valet parking and a dedicated 24-hour concierge. And health and wellbeing is taken care of, thanks to a top-of-the-range fitness centre, swimming pool, and spa with sauna and steam room. Residents are also treated to a cinema and a sky garden with sensational views of the capital’s skyline.
The local area has something for everyone. Take your pick of riverside restaurants and gastropubs. There’s also a good line of classy wine bars and cocktail hangouts. As for shopping, residents of Charrington Tower are just a short walk from the malls of Canary Wharf’s centre, where you’ll find everything from designer clothes to contemporary art. Famous Billingsgate Market – the largest inland fish market in the UK is less than a 10-minute walk away, too. This is 13 acres of net-fresh seafood, so head here early on a Saturday to pick up dinner for the evening,or visit its onsite cafe on a Sunday for what’s rumoured to be the best English breakfast for miles.
