Being just 300 metres from South Quay DLR, the development is conveniently located to get in and around London, but its Ability Place’s close proximity to Canary Wharf which is the real clincher. Whilst many live in Ability Place so they can walk to work in Canary Wharf, the business district’s Jubilee line station really does open up Central and East London within a matter of minutes.

The on-site facilities at Ability Place are also really rather good, sure its missing a swimming pool, but it’s got everything else. The extensive gym has all the equipment you expect at a paid-for gym, including plenty of free weights, add to that a sauna, steam room, treatment rooms and a Jacuzzi and you can begin to see why Ability Place is so popular.

Why would I want to live in Ability Place?

Why wouldn’t you?

Great Leisure facilities. Really friendly concierge staff who smile and remember your name. Close to Canary Wharf. A short walk away from Mudchute Park & Farm if you want to get away from the hustle and bustle. The Lotus Floating restaurant is just across the dock (and they do some pretty mean dim sum). A Tesco just around the corner on Millharbour.

Why we love Canary Wharf

Not just home to the international finance community, Canary Wharf has qualities that should appeal to just about anyone. The sleek tower blocks of London’s Canary Wharf may dominate the skyline but there are a tonne of things to do away from the financial centre. From amazing restaurants to shops, comedy clubs, live music venues and beautiful parks, Canary Wharf boasts some of the capital’s best entertainment. It’s very safe, even at night. And need we say anything about the fabulous transport connections? Whether you’re looking for your next home or you’re a professional on the hunt for rental properties, Canary Wharf is a fantastic area to live in.

We are a local Canary Wharf estate agency and our team knows the area inside out.

Customer reviews

  • As professional landlords with a large portfolio we expect a high level of service from the letting agents we use. The advice we received from Christian at Proper Local was excellent and he far exceeded all expectations, agreeing more lettings at our new development than another very well-known high street letting agent."Steve, Shoreditch
  • My client and I are very pleased with the lettings service we have received from Proper Local. A special thank you to Christian, he kept us updated throughout the week as viewings were taking place, he also gave some good advice on the rent we could achieve on the property. We would definitely use their lettings services again should we have another property in Canary Wharf. Once again thank you. "Nadia, Canary Wharf
  • Christian was absolutely amazing and unlike any estate agent we have met before. He was very flexible and understanding of any concerns we had. In fact, he was so nice, and the place so wonderful, we started to think that it might be a scam! It just goes to show how we have got used to money grabbing, smarmy estate agents and poor living situations. Proper Local are totally reinventing estate agency and we thank them! We love our new home."Kate, Deptford
  • What a pleasant way to be taken around for a viewing. No hard sell, lots of information not only about the property we were viewing but also about the local area. Proper Local were also closely by our sides as we made the transition from our old property to our new property, with lots of help an assistance."Rebecca, Deptford
  • After some bad experiences as a landlord I decided to choose something different from the traditional letting agent. Christian has gone above and beyond service expectations and has been incredibly helpful to me and my family. When a suitable tenant presented themselves there was only one week to finalise the negotiations and paperwork and it was handled very efficiently. I would definitely recommend his letting service."Claire, Isle of Dogs
  • With Christian, there is nothing to lose. The professional approach, confidence, knowledge and years of experience prove that Christian tells you everything AS IS. There is constant communication, updates, reminders and follow ups; it feels like that everything is being done for me. I highly recommend Proper Local. It is an enjoyable experience to work with them"Katarina, Shoreditch
