One Park Drive has sold out of its largest available apartments. The 3-bedroom Loft apartments with open plan living spaces and stunning wraparound terraces, have been snapped up by purchasers looking for spacious city homes.
One Park Drive, which will house 483 apartments, offers the ultimate in city and riverside living, with stunning views of the surrounding docklands and wider London. Remaining apartments are available to purchase, with studios starting from £665,000.
Designed by leading Swiss practice Herzog & de Meuron, One Park Drive is divided into three distinct typologies; Loft, Cluster and Bay. The Loft apartments, which feature interiors by Bowler James Brindley, are some of the largest properties available. Situated on floors two to nine, Lofts are designed to make the most of the connection to the surrounding green spaces and waterfront, with generous wraparound terraces framed by fluted terracotta panels, naturally sheltered within the building’s form. The Lofts feature contemporary, free-flowing spaces, complete with sliding walls, cool resin floors and unique mother of pearl-clad bathrooms.
The Cluster apartments, with their interlocking geometric façades, form the heart of the building. With striking interiors by Goddard Littlefair, the Cluster typology contains the greatest variety, with the lower levels connected to the parks and water; the higher floors with the sky. The top floors are home to the Bay apartments, which all boast double-height terraces set back into the building. These properties also feature interiors by Goddard Littlefair, with elegant palettes and cool textures, including concrete walls, timber panelling, pivot doors and natural stone, all of which maximise light.
Brian De’ath, Director of Residential Sales at Canary Wharf Group, commented: “To have sold all of the three-bedroom Lofts is a huge achievement for the One Park Drive team. With the majority of new build schemes, the smaller units are the first to go, yet at One Park Drive, the opposite is true. The demand for the larger apartments is testament to the unparalleled architecture and interior design, as well as the extensive facilities, dedicated open spaces and diverse events programme of the wider Canary Wharf estate.”
“We have now sold over 60% of apartments at One Park Drive and the larger units have formed a significant proportion of that. The new Wood Wharf neighbourhood will be a place where individuals and families can live, work, relax and play and it is great to see buyers invest in that community.”
The development will also offer state of the art amenities designed by GA Design, split over the ground and first floors. Residents will benefit from a sophisticated entrance lobby with 24-hour concierge services; library, cinema room and lounge on the ground floor, whilst the first floor houses an exclusive residents-only health club. Framed by floor-to-ceiling glazing, this calming space, which includes a 20-metre pool, gym, studio space and spa, invites stunning views of the surrounding parks, gardens and water.
One Park Drive will form the centrepiece of Canary Wharf’s new district, Wood Wharf. This neighbourhood will welcome a new community with the buzz of city life, filled with up to 3,600 new homes, 380,000 sq.ft. of retail space, eight acres of public spaces, plazas and parks. Amongst this will sit lively high streets, boutique shopping arcades, a vast collection of public art, doctor’s surgery and a brand new two-form primary school.
As a private estate, Canary Wharf is run by a team of over 1,000 people working around the clock. This dedicated team manage the day-to-day facilities, tend to the green spaces and provide Estate-wide concierge services, as well as co-ordinate the extensive arts and events programme.
Apartments at One Park Drive start at £665,000.

Canary Wharf Group is launching Level 32 Sky Lofts in One Park Drive on 9th of April 2018.
The building is divided into three distinct sections; the spacious Loft apartments take up floors 02-09, the Cluster section of apartments intelligently layered to maximise space in the mid-section and the large Bay apartments toward the top of the building. This structure creates a one-off design opportunity on L32, where the Cluster and Bay typologies meet.
The Sky Lofts, with interiors designed by Bowler James Brindley, are forged out of this idiosyncrasy created by One Park Drive’s striking cylindrical design. Fashioned using the best elements of both apartments, three purchasers now have the opportunity to own a property that has subtle differences in design unlike any previously available. These are some of the most beautifully appointed apartments to be made available within the landmark building, with prices starting from £2,750,000.
The Sky Lofts benefit from having spacious and separate kitchen and lounge areas as well as five-piece bathroom suites. In combining key characteristics, these newly released apartments boast spaciousness and views. Wrapping around the outside, each of the three Sky Lofts has up to 1,300 sq ft. of terrace, which is accessible from all of the major rooms.
This design approach encourages a harmonious mix of adaptable inside and outside living space. Through curved ceiling profiles, sculptured bathrooms and resin flooring, a seamless living environment is fully achieved.
Brian De’ath, Director of Residential Sales, said: “One Park Drive is a remarkable work of architecture and in time will become one of the most recognisable buildings in London. These three apartments are a one-off opportunity, created at the point where two of the three distinct sections of the structure meet. One Park Drive is a residential building like no other and the Sky Lofts epitomise our vision for what it is to live in this building.”
One Park Drive was launched in March 2017 and the Sky Lofts were not made available in the first phase of released apartments. The 58-storey building has 483 luxury apartments consisting of the three typologies, Loft, Cluster and Bay, which range from intelligently concise studios to stunning Penthouses. One Park Drive will form the centrepiece of Canary Wharf’s new district, Wood Wharf and residents will benefit from a lobby with concierge, a library, plus a screening room. There will also be a modern health and fitness suite, including a gym and 20-metre swimming pool overlooking the docks as well as a steam room and sauna.
In total, Canary Wharf’s new district will create up to 3,600 new homes, 380,000 sq ft. of retail space, 2.8 million sq ft. of office space and eight acres of public spaces, squares and parks.

One Park Drive is launching on 4th May 2017!
- 483 luxury apartments on offer at One Park Drive, a 58-storey building designed by leading architects, Herzog & de Meuron in its first residential venture in the UK
- Eye-catching new images of the Herzog & de Meuron circular building revealed – set to define urban, stylish living in this exemplary corner of London
- UK buyers will have the first opportunity to purchase a landmark piece of architectural art
- Latest development in the transformation of the new district of Canary Wharf
Canary Wharf Group has announced that its collection of exceptional apartments at One Park Drive will go on sale from 4th May, defining urban living within this instantly recognisable part of London. The new homes at One Park Drive, Herzog & de Meuron’s first residential project in the UK, will be launched first to UK-based buyers with prices for the 483 apartments in the 58-storey building starting from £575,000 for a studio, £750,000 for a one bed, £1,080,000 for a two bed and £1,625,000 for a three bed.
The critically acclaimed architecture firm has ensured that One Park Drive engages seamlessly with its surroundings, paying homage to its prominent waterfront location while at the same time, providing a natural circular contrast to its neighbours. This continues the trend of effortlessly blending past and present, a technique that won Herzog & de Meuron praise for its most recent project, the extension of the Tate Modern, which launched in 2016. The firm has also been commissioned to design Chelsea Football Club’s new stadium, which is due for completion in 2021.
Standing out amongst Canary Wharf’s famous skyline, the eye-catching apartment building, with its cylindrical appearance will form part of the new district of expansion in one of the city’s most celebrated areas. The next phase of Canary Wharf’s development will further accelerate the area’s transformation, which has already started to see organisations like Mayfair’s Arts Club commit to opening a new venue in the Docklands. Canary Wharf’s profile is changing fast, with a growing number of start-ups and media companies increasingly attracted to the area because of its innovative tenant base, excellent transport connections and expanding leisure facilities.
Meticulous attention has been paid to the design of this 58-storey building, ranging from cleverly concise studios to spacious four-bedroom penthouses. Three typologies – Loft, Bay and Cluster – powerfully expressed in the exterior and interiors have their own distinct personalities. Each apartment will offer generous views over the surrounding docklands and across London, while the layout of the building has been planned with privacy in mind, ensuring that no unit is overlooked.
Residents will also benefit from a lobby with concierge, a library, plus a screening room. There will also be a modern fitness suite, including a gym and 20-metre swimming pool overlooking the docks as well as a steam room and sauna.
Sir George Iacobescu, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Canary Wharf Group said: “Canary Wharf has always been pioneering in its approach to the built environment and urban design. One Park Drive, the first residential building by Herzog & de Meuron in the UK, will represent the best of Canary Wharf as our private Estate develops into a new destination for London. Herzog & de Meuron are a practice that we have long admired for their meticulous approach to design, their ability to challenge preconceived beliefs and conventional wisdom, delivering a truly remarkable finished product.
“One Park Drive will become a fixture on the London skyline and this launch represents a rare and very limited opportunity for people to buy a home in London. This more than just a building, it is a piece of art.”
Commenting on the project, Jacques Herzog, Herzog & de Meuron said: “Residential high rises are conventionally characterised by the negative qualities of sameness and too much repetition. One Park Drive has three distinct zones offering different types of accommodation that are clearly expressed offering a sense of individuality in a larger development.”
Brian De’ath, Director of Residential Sales, comments: “One Park Drive will define the standards by which all future residential projects will come to be measured. In terms of how it works, how it looks and the quality of every detail, it is something very special indeed.”
Canary Wharf’s new district comprises around two thirds residential properties, or approximately 3,300 new homes, a quarter of which will be affordable with the capacity in the future to build a further 400 new homes. The site will also create over 17,000 new jobs through hotel, leisure, construction and recreational facilities.
This milestone follows the launch of Canary Wharf Group’s first ever homes at 10 Park Drive in the summer of 2015. A Stanton Williams designed building, 10 Park Drive is a mid-rise 13 storey building adjoining a 42 storey tower, together containing 74 studios, 115 one-bedroom apartments, 141 two-bedroom apartments and 15 three-bedroom apartments.
Construction work on the site has already begun and completion of the first district of this development will follow the arrival of Crossrail in 2018. Once the Crossrail station opens, Canary Wharf will be only six minutes to Liverpool Street, within 39 minutes of Heathrow and moments from City Airport and international train services to Europe.
Internationally-renowned architects Herzog & de Meuron, Stanton Williams Architects, Allies and Morrison, Grid Architects, KPF, Darling Associates, Patel Taylor and Wirtz International have been appointed to design the first phase of buildings.
