Canary Wharf was once a drab, lifeless industrial area that held little appeal to renters. Since its regeneration it is now London’s powerhouse and a vibrant, trendy place for young couples to rent an apartment. Living in Canary Wharf E14 puts you in the heart of the city’s financial district. So, for couples and young professionals who work in Canary Wharf, there is no lengthy or expensive commute. In fact, it’s usually possible to walk or cycle to work.

The skyline of Canary Wharf is dominated by sleek, glass-fronted multi-storey office buildings, contemporary apartment blocks, and excellent shopping and leisure facilities. Being situated on the banks of the Thames in the former Docklands area, most apartments have fantastic views.
