The thriving 97-acre Canary Wharf estate has a new landmark. Recently topping out to reach its full height of 220 metres (729 ft.), the Build to Rent tower, comprising 636 private rented apartments, is shaping up as an iconic figure on the London skyline. Newfoundland will be a world class mixed use development over a total of 58 floors, at the western end of the Canary Wharf Estate, close to the River Thames. It will consist of high quality residential apartments, retail space and residential amenities. It will be located just a few minutes’ walk from the Canary Wharf London Underground (Jubilee Line & Elizabeth Line), Docklands Light Railway stations and the Canary Wharf river link, offering easy access to the West End, the City and beyond.
Newfoundland represents the first stage of new residential development at Canary Wharf and has been designed by renowned Mayfair-based architects, Horden Cherry Lee and structural engineers WSP. They have created an exceptionally delicate aesthetic rarely found in such tall towers. Newfoundland’s striking appearance stems from its transparent diagrid structure, also notably used in another famous London landmark, ‘The Gherkin’.
The apartments, ranging in size from 429 sq. ft. to 1,819 sq. ft provide studio, one, two and three-bedroom accommodation. They will be available fully-furnished through Vertus, a full-service build-to-rent operator, part of the Canary Wharf Group. Residents will have exclusive access to a range of onsite facilities, including a private dining room, residents’ lounge, gym, virtual fitness studios, children’s play area and terrace garden. Occupying the first floor of the 60-storey building, will be a 10,000 sq. ft. M Restaurant and Grill.
