Since 1998, the skyline in London and especially Docklands has changed beyond all recognition.
Back then One Canada Square rose as a lone column, hundreds of metres above the rest of the Isle Of Dogs, a statement of intent.
It was designed as a symbol, a lynchpin around which commercial development could cluster. And so it came to pass. In the early 2000s, towers sprang up to house some of the world’s biggest financial companies.
Attracted by new connectivity delivered by the Jubilee line and the convenience of having staff in a single location HSBC, Barclays and Citi built vast homes and lit signs atop them to declare their commitment to Canary Wharf. Business boomed.
Fast forward to 2016 and something else has happened. The bloom of commercial development has led to an explosion of residential homes across the Isle of Dogs and the wider area.
The colossal amount of regeneration and development in and around Canary Wharf has already transformed this part of the capital, adding the likes of residential skyscrapers Pan Peninsula, New Providence Wharf, Baltimore Tower, The Landmark, Lincoln Plaza and Dollar Bay to the landscape.
But that’s nothing compared to what’s planned. Driven by the rising attraction of the area as a place to live and, crucially, the forthcoming arrival of Crossrail services in 2018, which will see Docklands connected to parts of the capital with unprecedented speed, Big plans are taking shape.
Residential schemes in the pipeline include Maine Tower, The Pinnacle, Wardian, The Madison, and South Quay Plaza on the Isle Of Dogs as well as the immense Hertsmere House on West India Quay.
And that’s before we even mention the 3,200 homes that will be constructed as part of Canary Wharf’s second phase including skyscrapers 10 Park Drive and the 57-storey Herzog And De Meuron Tower.
That’s in addition to Canary Wharf Group’s residential titan, currently under construction to the west of the estate, the 60-storey Newfoundland tower.
