With its mix of heritage, having previously been the largest port in the world, and it’s modern day form of being the hub of international commerce and trading, Canary Wharf is an exciting place to live. Plus the investment pumped into the surrounding area for the 2012 Olympics has helped it to become highly sought after. It is this financial and commercial draw which ensures one of Canary Wharfs biggest attractions is the potential for career opportunities and development, and as such residents are often city workers as opposed to families.
There are a number of very chic, prime developments in Canary Wharf and with such sleek and luxurious homes on offer, the majority of which are in the form of studios and one bed apartments and penthouses, the competition to own or rent in the area is stiff.
The main areas and developments to buy and rent include: Canary Riverside, Pan Peninsula, West India Quay and Discover Dock.
In terms of the local area, there is any number of beautiful bars and restaurants to welcome in the many workers in the surrounding financial and commerce centres. Names to mention include, the Japanese cuisine restaurant Roka, Boisdale oyster bar and grill and the contemporary french cuisine found at Plateau.
For down time there is a wide variety of pastimes including shopping at the Westfield Stratford City shopping centre and over two hundred cafes, restaurants, shops and bars in the Jubilee Place and Churchhill Place shopping centres. For a quieter time, try lunch and a drink by the river side or a walk along the Thames.
Via the Jubilee Line and DLR you can easily access the West End and the City respectively, and a frequent bus service means that Canary Wharf is well linked to the rest of London. The London City Airport is 30 minutes away and the 2017 Crossrail link will provide easy access to West London and beyond.
