The thriving 97-acre Canary Wharf estate has a new landmark. Newfoundland, a spectacular 60-storey residential skyscraper housing 636 apartments topped out on 10 October 2018.
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’.
Newfoundland is a visual landmark for Canary Wharfand also for London. The tower offers 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.
Newfoundland will provide high quality, fully furnished, rental apartments as part of the Vertus portfolio. The building provides apartments that are both generous in size and layout, and offers views west over London and east over the dock and Canary Wharf. Retail, restaurant facilities and a health club are provided at the base of the building for the enjoyment of residents and the wider community.
