Canary Wharf Group tops out at 8 Harbord Square – 01.03.22

Construction has topped out at 8 Harbord Square, Canary Wharf Group’s latest residential development.

Located in Wood Wharf, Canary Wharf’s new neighbourhood, 8 Harbord Square will offer 82 loft-style apartments across 12 storeys once complete.

Designed by Karakusevic Carson, it will also provide commercial and retail usages at ground floor level. 

The design of the building has been influenced by the warehouse districts of Lower Manhattan, with the new apartments offered in two styles – Prospect loft and Gramercy loft. Both feature exposed brick walls, exposed servicing, concrete ceilings and large industrial-style windows to create the loft-living effect.

The building also draws architectural inspiration from the history of the London docklands and Canary Wharf; 8 Harbord Square’s façade is set in simple vertical bays with solid brickwork and decorative panels and cornices to define the large window bays.

Brian De’ath, Managing Director of Residential Sales at Canary Wharf Group, comments: “This is a significant milestone for 8 Harbord Square, our latest residential development that sits at the heart of Wood Wharf. I’m delighted that we’re moving forward at speed to create this exciting, loft-inspired apartment building that brings a unique taste of Manhattan to Canary Wharf for first time.”

Wood Wharf is a new 23-acre neighbourhood within the Canary Wharf estate, which will comprise up to 3,600 new homes, 350,000 sq. ft. of shops and restaurants, 2 million sq. ft. of office space, a new NHS doctor’s surgery and two-form primary school. Amongst this will sit lively high streets, green public spaces and walkways. Residents will benefit from a year-round programme of arts, music, sport and events, many of which are free.

Prices at 8 Harbord Square start from £745,000. For more information or to book a private tour of the marketing suite contact Canary Wharf Group  or visit
