The architectural and interior design, build quality and innovation was ranked in categories covering housing partnerships, regeneration schemes, community-led projects, home interiors, smart homes, landscaping and sustainability.

The award judges, who include architects from Assael, AHMM and Pollard Thomas Edwards, said: “One Park Drive, designed by Herzog & de Meuron, is the signature building of the new district and one of London’s most distinctive residential towers. Positioned on a prominent dockside plot on Wood Wharf, the new neighbourhood of Canary Wharf, One Park Drive represents a unique architectural achievement, which has been designed to be the very best in city and waterside living.

“One of the most challenging building types to construct, the circular, geometric form was chosen to clearly distinguish itself from the commercial buildings of Canary Wharf, meaning it cannot be mistaken for anything other than a place where people live. The four distinctive zones on the outside reflect how well the living spaces work on the inside.”

Brian De’ath, Managing Director of Residential Sales at Canary Wharf Group commented: “One Park Drive is an iconic building that has already become an instantly recognizable part of London’s skyline due to its unique architecture. Due to the prominence of its position, at the entrance to Canary Wharf’s new residential neighbourhood, we wanted to create a signature building that would act as a marker for the wider residential offering across the Estate. These awards will be added to others already secured this year, capping an outstanding period and further demonstrating One Park Drive’s credentials as a truly outstanding residential address.”

Studios, 1, 2 and 3-bedroom homes at One Park Drive currently start from £710,000.
