Canary Wharf Group plc is an iconic London real estate business which has overseen the largest urban regeneration project ever undertaken in Europe. We design, build and manage a unique set of assets to serve local and international companies, renowned retailers and some of the UK’s most exciting technology startups. Our vision is to create truly great places where people want to work, live and relax. Over the past 25 years we have developed 16 million square feet of London’s disused docklands into one of the world’s foremost business districts, with more than 11 million square feet to come. Canary Wharf is home to the global and regional headquarters of leading names in law, banking, financial and professional services, media and technology.
The Canary Wharf Estate is fast evolving into one of London’s most exciting hubs. Alongside high quality offices for established companies, our status as a major retail destination including five shopping malls, Level39, Europe’s most influential financial technology accelerator, and the Cognicity smart cities technology initiative, we will soon deliver a major residential building programme, providing thousands of new homes for Londoners. Outside of Canary Wharf, the Group has a stake in the 20 Fenchurch Street (‘Walkie Talkie’) development in the City of London and in the Shell Centre redevelopment on London’s South Bank. We are in the business of place-making and continue to create cityscapes of and for the future. We employ over 1000 people and there is a working population at Canary Wharf of 105,000 people. The arrival of Crossrail trains in 2017/2018 will strengthen the resilience of the existing transport infrastructure, doubling capacity and cutting journey times into central London and further afield. It will take 39 minutes to get to Heathrow airport, while City airport is just 10 minutes away.
