One Park Drive: A vision of 21st century urban living in Canary Wharf
For the last three decades, Canary Wharf has been a thriving centre of business and culture that has shifted London’s centre of gravity east and set new standards for urban spaces. And now the most exciting evolution in the Estate’s history has begun – the creation of the new residential district.
It will be a neighbourhood of green spaces and waterside boardwalks. It will be both an oasis of calm and one of the most well-connected neighbourhoods in Europe. It will be just as easy to grab the essentials of daily life as it will be to take in live music or theatre. It will be a local neighbourhood with all the benefits of being part of a private Estate.
Over the next few years, Canary Wharf’s blossoming new district will also welcome an influx of residents. Around 3,300 homes are being constructed, along with landscaped riverside areas and community facilities.
One Park Drive is the signature building of the new district. Positioned at the head of the dock, it proudly represents everything that makes the new neighbourhood so special – a unique architectural achievement thoughtfully designed to be the very best in city and waterside living.
Canary Wharf Group
No-one else in London has had such an influence on the City’s skyline as Canary Wharf Group. For them, achieving one of the greatest ever feats of civil engineering – turning the original 97 acres of derelict Docklands into one of the world’s most sought after locations – was just the start.
Over the last thirty years Canary Wharf Group has worked alongside many of the world’s leading architects, pioneered innovative and sustainable construction methods and has gained a reputation as world leaders in creating not just buildings but thriving places, where communities as well as businesses flourish.
Being one organisation that does everything – from creating the initial vision, through construction, to the day-to-day management – gives the Group a uniquely long-term perspective.
