Canary Wharf Group

Transforming urban spaces into extraordinary environments.

Canary Wharf Group is the developer of the largest urban regeneration project in Europe.

We are a commercial and residential property company who, as owner, manager and developer, is responsible for the regeneration of 128 acres of the once-derelict Docklands district of East London. Our purpose is to transform urban spaces into extraordinary environments.

We have created a 24/7 city where people can live, work and thrive; enjoy the benefits of great transport links, access to green spaces and waterside living; and a wide range of amenities including an award-winning arts and events programme. Our retail offering comprises over 300 shops, including grocery stores, pharmacies, health clubs, bars and restaurants, all within 15 minutes’ walk.

The Evolution of Canary Wharf

Thirty-five years ago, Canary Wharf 1.0 started its transformation into a new financial centre noted for its investment in striking architectural design, infrastructure, and transport. At Canary Wharf Group, we have always been pioneers, open to change and unperturbed by challenges. It’s at the core of our company.

In 2015, we recognised that Londoners, increasingly wanted to live and work in vibrant communities with green space, leisure facilities, shops, restaurants, schools, and medical services – all within easy reach and we embarked on Canary Wharf 2.0, building a new residential community as part of a mixed-use neighbourhood. Today more than 3,500 residents call the estate home.

In 2020, we set out our plans for Canary Wharf 3.0 focusing on three areas:

  • Nature: Our ground-breaking partnership with the Eden Project encourages biodiversity and will introduce a green-blue spine through the centre of Canary Wharf
  • Adding amenities for everyone: On top of our regular events programme, we have open water swimming in Middle Dock, Europe’s fastest go-karts, basketball, and central London’s largest padel tennis centre.
  • Attracting new industries: Genomics England, the MHRA, NHS Transformation Unit and Barts Health are early tenants, and the Innovation Centre, with 40,000 sq ft of wet lab space, has strong demand from other life science companies.

London, one of the world’s greatest cities, is undergoing constant reinvention as the needs of its diverse and growing population change. Continuing to evolve to meet Londoners’ needs, we’re ensuring Canary Wharf’s future will have an increasingly varied community of businesses, retailers, residents, and visitors, living and working alongside nature.

“Since the very start, Canary Wharf has been defined by an audacious vision — of what a city can be, of what urban life at its very best should be about.”
