Almost 100 eager buyers queued in Canary Wharf on Thursday 9th July in order to secure one of the very first apartments to be built in the famous London district. The demand was for the prestigious new address 10 Park Drive, Canary Wharf Group’s first-ever residential development.

The brand new residential address, 10 Park Drive, comprises a mid-rise 13 storey element which adjoins a 42 storey tower that embraces the uninterrupted views towards the south, east, and west including the O2, Canary Wharf’s public parks and the river.

The development, which will include 74 studios, 115 one-bedroom apartments, 141 two-bedroom apartments and 15 three-bedroom apartments, is anticipated to complete in 2019. Residents at Canary Wharf will also become members of a stunning new health and fitness club, which will include a swimming pool, a state-of-the-art gym and exercise area, jacuzzi, sauna, steam room and a studio for regular pilates, stretch, yoga and related fitness classes.

Brian De’ath, Head of Residential sales, Canary Wharf Group said: “We have received over 3,000 registrations in a very short space of time, and seeing around 100 buyers queue illustrates the high levels of demand for people wanting to live on the Canary Wharf Estate. 10 Park Drive is a fantastic residential address, which will be surrounded by over 300 shops and restaurants, open spaces and some of the best transport links in London. We’re really excited to welcome the first of many who will be able to call Canary Wharf their home.”

Stirling Prize winning architectural practice, Stanton Williams, has designed the buildings to maximise the light and beautiful views at every juncture, all the apartments come with a balcony or terrace. To help residents unwind, they will have access to a secluded ‘oasis in the city’ – a beautiful private sky terrace, which will provide an uninterrupted southern exposure throughout the year.

Award-winning architects Make, responsible for the interiors of 10 Park Drive, has ensured the design of the lobby and apartments are high-quality, functional living spaces that are unique in appearance.

The open-plan kitchens and integrated bathrooms offer elegant and smart solutions to practical problems and every aspect has been considered, from where you plug in your kettle to the soft close of a door.

The new residential address, 10 Park Drive, is a cornerstone in the future development of 3,200 homes, on the Canary Wharf Estate, a quarter of which will be affordable with the capacity in the future to build a further 400 new homes. 10 Park Drive will be at the heart of a dynamic social, cultural and business centre, which will include premium offices, world-class shops and restaurants, a school, doctors surgery and stunning open spaces, including the roof garden at Crossrail Place.
