More about Canary Wharf Office Space
Canary Wharf – located in East London on the banks of the meandering Thames – is the UK’s second key financial centre, alongside the City of London. Construction began in the 1980s on dereclict docklands and it’s London’s newest business district. Uniquely amongst the other commercial areas in London, the architecture is 100% modern. It’s home to some of Europe’s tallest buildings, including One Canada Square, the 2nd tallest building in the UK.
Canary Wharf houses around 14,000,000 ft2 of office and retail space, more than half of which is owned by the Canary Wharf Group. About 105,000 people work in Canary Wharf. Many high profile organisations – particularly banks, professional services and media companies – have chosen to base their HQ in Canary Wharf. Examples include Barclays, Credit Suisse, Citigroup, Clifford Chance, Infosys, HSBC, J.P. Morgan, KPMG, MetLife, Moody’s, Morgan Stanley and Thomson Reuters.
Canary Wharf has excellent transport links – with the Jubilee Line on the Tube, DLR (Docklands Light Railway) connecting to Stratford International and the Eurostar. Bus and River Bus services are available, along with Cycle Superhighway CS3. The impressive Crossrail station will be complete in 2017 further improving Canary Wharf’s connections to Central and West London.
Canary Wharf boasts fabulous river views, extensive shopping and dining options.
