Canary Wharf Group plc is an established integrated property development, investment, and management group of companies. It is focussed on the design, construction, leasing and management of grade A office space, high-quality retail, leisure and residential in central London.
Over the past 20 years Canary Wharf Group plc has successfully regenerated derelict wharves into one of the world’s premier business and shopping districts, constructing over 16m sq ft of office space, retail and restaurants; more than any other company in London. These buildings are currently occupied by over 100,000 people.
Canary Wharf Group plc specialise in buildings that meet the highest sustainable standards, using world class architects, designers and consultants. Beautiful public realm, landscaped gardens as well as public art and events are central to the Group’s approach to creating the very best destinations to live, work and enjoy.
The Group has a successful track record for developing outside of Canary Wharf. As well as developing Southbank Place in a joint venture with Qatari Diar, the Group is developing 20 Fenchurch Street in the City of London, a joint venture with Land Securities. The Group previously completed the construction of Pan Peninsula, a premium high-rise residential development and the Drapers Gardens office building in the City. Planning consent has also been submitted for 568 luxury apartments in Newfoundland and over 3,000 homes in Wood Wharf, a 4.3m sq ft new district of Canary Wharf.
In 2018 Canary Wharf will open its flagship Crossrail station allowing for greater and more efficient transport links across London and beyond. It will also be one of London’s newest retail and leisure destinations.
Southbank Place will feature outstanding residential space, state-of-the-art offices and a diverse mix of retail, aimed at creating a place that will not only change the way people live and work, but add a new dimension to sophisticated living right in the heart of London.
