West facing apartments will look across South Dock with Canary Wharf’s impressive, rather than imposing, skyline to the right. East facing apartments look towards the 02 in North Greenwich and all but the lower floored apartments will have views over the Thames.

Internal specification includes underfloor heating, comfort cooling and high-end Siemens kitchen appliances. Interestingly, the apartments’ flooring is to be large format anthracite tiles rather than the more usual wood or engineered wood. Nice touch.

Why would I want to live there?

The developers made a big play of the fact that Dollar Bay can’t be built in front of due to its position on the corner of South Dock, and we agree that it certainly be re-assuring to residents. As Canary Wharf goes through a quite unprecedented ‘build phase’ with many buildings’ previously great views being obscured, Dollar Bay’s offering is strong. The fact that all apartments, regardless of size, have a winter garden is also compelling. We have a sneaking suspicion that Dollar Bay may well go on to be something of a Canary Wharf favourite. Nearly every apartment is going to have an unobscured water view and we really liked the specification of Mount Anvil’s Lexicon scheme on City Road.
