Canary Wharf Group’s First In-Situ Show Apartments Launch at 10 Park Drive
Canary Wharf Residential has launched three spectacular fully furnished show apartments at its first private sale residential building, 10 Park Drive, Wood Wharf. The show apartments with interiors created by award winning Make Architects, have been beautifully presented and perfectly complement the high-end living available at 10 Park Drive. Remaining apartments at 10 Park Drive are available from £830,000.
The three show-apartments now available to view perfectly present the elegant simplicity at 10 Park Drive and are designed to make the most out of the natural light and spectacular views out across the boardwalks and docks of Canary Wharf’s new district, Wood Wharf.
Brian De’ath, Director of Residential Sales at Canary Wharf Group, comments: “When you walk into the three new show apartments at 10 Park Drive, you are met with a sense of tranquil calm thanks to the abundance of natural light pouring in from the full-length windows.
“What really makes the show apartments though, is the panoramic views across the landmarks of the capital and the bustling community of Wood Wharf below. The views are truly spectacular for watching the world-below go by.”
Katy Ghahremani, Director from interior architects, Make, comments: “Our design for the interiors of the apartments are inspired by the elegance of the architecture and materiality of the building at 10 Park Drive. This creates a holistic experience for the residents with warm and light spaces which are uplifting and relaxing.”
Each apartment interior at 10 Park Drive has been designed to embody the vision of the scheme, with natural light and materials to create relaxing and versatile spaces. Potential purchasers will see how Make has integrated the external architecture into each interior detail, their inspiration came from the concept of carving into a solid block.
The apartments feature open-plan kitchen and living spaces that benefit from outstanding views over London making this the centre of the home. Marble inspired vanity blocks can be found in the bathrooms that have almost a spa-like feel to them. Purchasers have a choice of two different timber types in the living areas, with a light and dark palette that emphasise the warm tones and textures used throughout. The excellent joinery within this space really reinforces the sense of quality and craftsmanship on offer at 10 Park Drive.
Only 70 apartments remain at 10 Park Drive and the first new residents were welcomed in June. The residents are the first homeowners to live in Canary Wharf’s new neighbourhood, Wood Wharf. Once complete, Wood Wharf will comprise up to 3,600 new homes, c.350,000 sq. ft. retail space, over nine acres of public spaces, gardens, artwork and parks. It will be an oasis of calm in the city, whilst also being one of the most well-connected districts in Europe.
Residents at 10 Park Drive will benefit from access to a serene landscaped sky terrace situated on the 13th floor, where careful planting creates a unique space for relaxing or entertain. They will also have access to the private Residents Club, which has been contemporarily designed with intimate seating areas and a library, which acts as a perfect place to work or share a coffee with friends. Residents will be able to hire the sky terrace and Residents Club for special private events.
In addition, residents will also benefit from membership of a stunning health and fitness club close to 10 Park Drive. Alongside a swimming pool, the club will include a state-of-the-art gym, exercised area, jacuzzi, sauna and steam rooms, as well as a studio for classes and private treatment rooms.
