Canary Wharf Group (CWG) has completed 8 Harbord Square, a striking new residential building that marks a major milestone in the ongoing transformation of Canary Wharf into a bustling, mixed-use neighbourhood.

8 Harbord Square comprises of 82 loft style apartments across 12 storeys and 6,000 sq ft of retail and commercial space on the ground floor. Located in the heart of Wood Wharf, the 23-acre neighbourhood within the Canary Wharf estate.

Designed by leading architecture practice Karakusevic Carson Architects, the open-concept apartments at 8 Harbord Square are available in two styles – the 809 sq.ft Prospect loft and 1,037 sq.ft Gramercy loft, all of which are completely open plan with exposed brick interiors and crittal windows, allowing owners to easily customise the space as needs evolve. The only fixed elements within the apartments are the kitchens and bathrooms.

The ground floor levels of 8 Harbord Square will provide commercial and retail spaces. Residents will enjoy direct access to Harbord Square Park, whilst the building is opposite The Lanes, a high street-style offering which will be home to a mix of shops, cafes and restaurants. Just around the corner, residents will also have access to a sunny boardwalk and Harbour Quay Gardens.

8 Harbord Square is the third residential-for-sale building completed at Canary Wharf, following One Park Drive and 10 Park Drive. Including residents living in the Estate’s build-to-rent apartments, there are now over 3,500 residents living on Canary Wharf.

Melanie Conway, Director of Residential Sales, CWG said: “Inspired by the industrial heritage of the docks, as well as the loft-style living of New York City, the completion of 8 Harbord Square brings a new style to the Estate which encapsulates Canary Wharf’s current evolution into a vibrant, mixed-use community – surrounded by world class amenities, incredible green and blue spaces, vibrant restaurants and bars, and exceptional transport links.”
