Lincoln Plaza in Canary Wharf

Lincoln Plaza is Galliard Homes’ most recently completed residential development in the Canary Wharf area, and (imposingly) stands to the south of the business district close to South Quay DLR and Millwall Dock.

It’s a sprawling development, but the principal private residential components are Duckman and Talisman Towers, which comprise 366 private luxury residential apartments, and respectively stand at 22 and 31 floors. A 12-storey international brand name 100-suite hotel is yet to open, but integrates with the two towers. At launch, which has confused many, Talisman Tower was named Franklin Tower, and Duckman was named Greenwich.

Administration Fees For Tenants

The topic of administration fees charged by lettings agents is, excuse the pun, hot property in the property press right now. In fact, this very matter is to go before the House of Lords next week with the subject actually being the outright ban of agents’ fees as part of The Renters’ Rights Bill. 

At Proper Local we’ve long felt that excessive tenant administration fees are not only unfair, but a blight on the industry itself. Estate and letting agents have got a bad enough reputation as it is, so charging excessive fees for the administration of a tenancy isn’t exactly going to help matters is it.

The client in a tenancy is always the Landlord, and the client pays in any industry, so why do we charge administration fees?

41 Millharbour is a modern residential development in London’s Docklands, just minutes from the business centre of Canary Wharf.

Comprising 264 apartments over 15 floors, each apartment is finished to a high standard and offer open-plan living spaces with modern, fully equipped fitted kitchens.  The development offers secure gated parking, whilst a 24-hour concierge ensures those Amazon parcels are never return to sender. Residents also have access to a beautiful water-featured communal garden in the centre of the development.

Canary Central is built on a site originally occupied by Tate & Lyle, an agribusiness, who we most commonly know as a sugar refiner. Founded by Henry Tate he used his fortune to found the Tate Gallery in 1897, hence the inspiration for naming the six buildings that form Canary Central: Gainsborough House, Nash House, Turner House, Lowry House, Moore House and Constable House.

Canary Central was completed in 2004 by developer Galliard Homes. The buildings are arranged around a central courtyard with raised planters, seating and architectural features. Located in the Vibrant area of Canary Wharf, Canary Central Offers a range of apartments from suites to three bedroom apartments.
