Every iconic area has its residential pinnacle, a towering point in the skyline. For the thriving, 97-acre Canary Wharf estate, that place will soon be the newly constructed and aptly named Newfoundland, a spectacular 60-storey residential skyscraper housing over 560 decadent apartments.
Newfoundland represents the first stage of new residential development at Canary Wharf and will be designed by renowned Mayfair-based architects, Horden Cherry Lee who have created an exceptionally delicate aesthetic rarely found in such impressively high towers. Newfoundland’s striking appearance stems from its transparent diagrid structure, also notably used in another famous London landmark, ‘The Gherkin’. The ‘diamond’ shape will have sloped, sculpted sides and an external frame will give residents more space while also offering privacy on the balconies, shielding each one from being overlooked by their neighbours.
Newfoundland will become not only a visual landmark for Canary Wharf but also for the capital. The tower will offer some of the best views in London and residents will be able to enjoy panoramic scenes of the capital from their floor-to-ceiling windows, a stunning backdrop to everyday life. Residents can watch the morning sun come up over the impressive skyline and the buzzing pace of the city in the day, right through to the evening when the workday tempo slows down for more leisurely pursuits.
