Luxury fitness lifestyle brand Third Space is set to open a 40,000 sq. ft. premium health club at 15 Water Street.
The state-of-the-art space will be open to new members and will also include an 8,000 sq. ft. area exclusively for residents – the first combined offering of its kind in London. Residents will get the best of both worlds – a vibrant world-class club complete with an extensive group exercise class offering and industry-leading personal trainers, as well as their own private training area, spa, hydrotherapy pool and lounge.
The Third Space private residents’ area will be available to purchasers at 10 Park Drive.
Set to open in 2021, Third Space Wood Wharf is being designed by the award-winning architecture practice, RHE. The main 32,000 sq. ft. space will feature a freestanding athletic rig, multi-purpose studios, medical and beauty suite, 20-metre swimming pool, and spa complex.
Brian De’ath, Head of Residential Sales at Canary Wharf Group, commented: “To be able to offer our residents at 10 Park Drive a private fitness space provided by an operator of the calibre of Third Space is a real coup for us. We want to create a lifestyle here that matches the quality of our residential offering and this is the perfect partnership.”
Colin Waggett, CEO of Third Space, added: “Place-making developers such as Canary Wharf clearly recognise that Third Space’s unique and tailored proposition can differentiate and add value to their developments. We’re excited also to provide our first private residents’ space, which will have its own feel and layout to the main club. Residents will be able to experience everything a Third Space club has to offer, as well as a private sanctuary for relaxation.
“Every Third Space club is unique. Despite being only a short walk from our existing 100,000 sq. ft. Canary Wharf club, Third Space Wood Wharf will look and feel very different. The scale and quality of the new district and the continued growth of the whole Canary Wharf Estate gives us the confidence to deliver a new and exciting fitness hub for this thriving area of London.”
Established in 2001, Third Space operates a portfolio of clubs in iconic locations across London, including Canary Wharf, Tower Bridge, Soho, Marylebone, and Tower Hill, with a sixth location due to open in Islington in early 2019.

Canary Wharf Group has completed the first leasing transactions for Wood Wharf.
Ennismore, the developer and operator of unique hospitality properties around the world including The Hoxton and Gleneagles; and The Office Group (TOG), one of the UK’s largest providers of shared workspaces, are two of the fastest growing and creative companies in the UK. They will reside in the distinctive red-bricked building of 15 Water Street.
Ennismore has agreed to lease c.100,000 sq. ft. on a 25-year contract, arranged over the Ground floor and Levels 4 to 9. This will house Ennismore’s newest brand, NoCo: a 312-room hotel with honest pricing, clever design, beautiful essentials and a focus on technology.
TOG has leased c.45,000 sq. ft. of the Water Street mixed-use building, arranged over Ground and Levels 10 to 13 on a 20-year contract. TOG is a pioneer in its field, offering beautiful, individually designed office buildings with progressive membership schemes and flexible agreements to a mix of start-ups and established businesses.
Wood Wharf is currently under construction by Canary Wharf Group, with the first phase of buildings to be delivered in 2019 and 2020. With 2 million sq. ft. of commercial space, it represents a major new destination for modern businesses.
The 5 million sq. ft. development will include world-class cultural and educational centres and up to 3,600 residential homes, 380,000 sq. ft. of retail and leisure amenities, a two form primary school and medical facilities set in 3.6 hectares of interconnected open spaces; combining tree-lined high streets, dockside walkways, and running trails. Wood Wharf will become a home to tenants of a modern and progressive mind-set and business community.
Richard Archer, Managing Director Offices at Canary Wharf Group said: “As part of our placemaking phase, we chose Ennismore and TOG because they epitomise the vision we have for Wood Wharf. We are specifically partnering with dynamic and forward-thinking businesses like Ennismore and TOG so we can continue to attract a truly diverse range of occupiers. We are delighted to announce them as the first to sign leases with us at Wood Wharf.”
“We’re incredibly excited to launch our new hotel brand NoCo as part of a new era of the Canary Wharf estate” said Sharan Pasricha, CEO of Ennismore, “Wood Wharf provides a location that matches with our mission to create an affordable hotel that will embrace technology, great value, and stylish design, as well as provide an open space to the new tenants of the estate.”
Charlie Green, Co-CEO, The Office Group added: “The conventional market in and around Canary Wharf has a huge volume of traditional office space. When you have that level of concentration, it tends to follow that the need for flexible and shared space is strong. So we’ve been looking for the right building for some time. With Wood Wharf, we’ve found the right building. We’re delighted to be sharing the building with Ennismore. I think we sit really well with a hotel, and their branding and design skills are outstanding. We’re working very closely with them and CWG to create a landmark building for the Estate.”
