Canary Wharf Group has released details of the final 75 apartments within its 10 Park Drive development in Wood Wharf. Designed by leading architects Stanton Williams, this striking 345-apartment scheme is located at the heart of Canary Wharf’s new district, and offers purchasers the exclusive opportunity to live in one of Europe’s most desirable and well-connected private estates. Purchasers are invited to register interest with Canary Wharf Group, with one-bedroom apartments starting from £870,000.
Set across two 42-storey and 13-storey towers, 10 Park Drive will comprise 74 studios, 115 one-bedroom apartments, 141 two-bedroom and 15 three-bedroom apartments, all offering extraordinary views of the city and the ever-changing river. Located adjacent to the South Dock, 10 Park Drive has been designed to engage people with the surrounding water, landscaped gardens and views, creating a bustling waterfront neighbourhood.
Due to complete at the beginning of 2020, purchasers at 10 Park Drive will be among the first to live on the Canary Wharf estate; an area home to a richly diverse community, which combines the finest architecture, technology, brilliantly curated public art, beautiful public spaces with some of the very best of shopping, restaurants and events London has to offer.
All apartments have been designed with high quality, tactile materials to maximise the natural daylight, and the large outside spaces allow residents to appreciate the stunning vistas at every opportunity. Some apartments boast spacious balconies, whilst others house beautifully designed terraces, set back within the building’s form for greater privacy. Inside, interiors have been masterminded by Make Architects, who have chosen to echo the architecture of the building through the warmth of timber, elegance of porcelain and champagne metal detailing.
Interiors have been designed to be flexible to suit the residents’ needs and requirements, and each can be customised, with sliding doors facilitating either an open plan or more traditional layout. Purchasers can also choose between light and dark colour palettes. Apartments include sleek kitchens with fully-integrated Siemens appliances, zoned underfloor heating, fitted storage throughout, comfort cooling, feature ceiling detailing and engineered timber flooring. 10 Park Drive also offers 24-hour security, concierge, entry-phone system, bicycle storage and charging points for electric vehicles.
Residents of 10 Park Drive will also have access to a secluded “oasis in the city”; a terraced sky garden on the 13th floor. With bookable facilities and free use of shared spaces, this sophisticated residents’ club provides an elegant space for residents to relax, socialise and entertain. Purchasers will also have access to a new, state-of-the-art Third Space fitness club, with a swimming pool, jacuzzi, sauna, steam room and fitness class studio.
Brian De’ath, Director of Residential Sales at Canary Wharf Group, comments; “Canary Wharf is already one of London’s best run estates, with a vibrant calendar of events and state of the art facilities. 10 Park Drive will become a striking addition to Canary Wharf’s already globally recognisable skyline, and residents will soon be able to say they were there when it all began.”
“Not only will residents get all benefits of living on a private estate, they will be among the first to appreciate the area’s new shops, restaurants and public spaces. With a new doctor’s surgery and a two-form primary school set to open in the near future, this new community has something for everyone.”
Apartments at 10 Park Drive will be available to purchase in September 2019. Prices start from £870,000.
