Formerly known as Wood Wharf, Canary Wharf Group has recently announced the development of this highly significant mixed-use project at New District, Canary Wharf. The scheme comprises just under 2 million sq ft of new offices, targeted towards creative and progressive businesses, with the first phase of buildings to be delivered in 2019. This will be a transformative new piece of London, especially in the context of the 3,500 new homes and 350,000 sq ft of retail that are also being provided.
This New District of Canary Wharf will encompass 22 acres, including 9 acres of interconnected parks, piazzas, riverside walkways and garden squares to extend the appeal of Canary Wharf as a progressive working and living urban district. As wellbeing and lifestyle are key drivers, the scheme aims to include running paths and outdoor sports equipment, as well as tailored arts and events programme and a cultural/exhibition centre for the new community.
The 350,000 sq ft of new retail and leisure will diversify and complement the existing Canary Wharf retail offer with the majority being at street level. Concept stores, health clubs, contemporary brands, showrooms, independents, boutiques and neighbourhood cafes and restaurants including street food markets, will be attracted to the modern streetscape, creating a contemporary, active and dynamic retail and leisure environment.
The 2 million square feet of offices are to be delivered in 6 office buildings typically ranging in size from 100,000 sq ft to 200,000 sq ft. These buildings have been designed to create a more urbane landscape, with a mixture of industrial, red brick and concrete buildings, whilst still benefiting from Canary Wharf Group’s philosophy of providing the most technically advanced buildings with dual power supplies and 1 to 8m2 occupational densities. The aim will be to achieve BREEAM “Outstanding” on all of these buildings.
