Canary Wharf Group Achieves the Topping Out of Ten Park Drive
Canary Wharf Group, one of London’s leading developers, has achieved a significant milestone with the topping out of Ten Park Drive, the first residential apartments the Group has built on the Canary Wharf estate. The building has reached its full height of 149 metres above ground level. Designed by the internationally renowned Stanton Williams Architects, the building will offer 345 homes when it completes in the final quarter of 2019. Ten Park Drive will form a key part of Canary Wharf’s new residential district, Wood Wharf, alongside neighbouring residential development, One Park Drive.
Ten Park Drive will comprise 74 studios, 115 one-bedroom apartments, 141 two-bedroom apartments and 15 three-bedroom apartments when complete. The development saw unprecedented interest when it was first launched in July 2015, with over 60 buyers camping overnight to secure their home of choice. With 275 units now sold (80%), Ten Park Drive is currently withdrawn from the market.
The apartments have been designed to maximise the light and stunning vistas of the surroundings at every opportunity, and interiors have been masterminded by Make Architects. Residents of Ten Park Drive will also have access to a private sky terrace on the 13th floor, with bookable facilities and free use of shared spaces. The development sits adjacent to South Dock and is linked to the water by exquisitely landscaped gardens and parks. Purchasers will also have access to a state-of-the-art new health and fitness club with a swimming pool, jacuzzi, sauna, steam room and fitness class studio.
Wood Wharf is London’s newest district; an exciting new expansion into reclaimed land by Canary Wharf Group. Residents at Ten Park Drive will be at the centre of a new community, and close to the wide array of art and events, many of which are free as well as five retail malls. With the opening of Elizabeth Line imminently in December this year, those working nearby will be perfectly placed for a speedy commute.
With up to 3,600 homes in the pipeline, including One Park Drive, Wood Wharf is a burgeoning community just waiting to happen. Currently on the market, One Park Drive features beautifully crafted interiors and private balconies, with views over the Thames and surrounding areas of London. Studios, one, two and three-bedroom apartments are available from £665,000.
Brian De’ath, Head of Residential Sales at Canary Wharf Group, said: “This is an exciting step in the construction of Ten Park Drive, both for the area and for us at Canary Wharf Group as we top out our first residences on the Estate. The work that has gone into the development so far has been phenomenal, and we look forward to it reaching completion and for the first residents to move into Canary Wharf’.
“Some of our purchasers camped out overnight to be able to secure a home at Ten Park Drive which I strongly believe says a great deal about the quality of the offering here. The extensive calendar of events, diverse community and excellent transport links on the Estate are making it an increasingly hard location to beat within the London property market.”
