Discover your lifestyle with Apartment Living @ Canary Wharf
London's Docklands has been a regeneration process for the past 25 years with a transformation project that launched in 1981 by a new government
agency call the London Docklands Development Corporation (LDDC.) The Docklands area covers approximately s eight-and-a-half square miles of the
riverside parts of Southwark, Tower Hamlets and Newham.
Today London's Docklands is one of the most exciting tourist attractions in addition to being one of the trendiest places to work and live. The area is
enthusiastically described as vibrant, diverse, and culturally interesting area and also the fastest growing destination in London. A wealth of beautiful
historic warehouses, old riverside pubs and impressive new developments enchant the wandering visitor.
Docklands is a place for discovery and offers an incredible and glorious history. The sheer scale of new developments makes the area an investors
dream come true. Located to the east of the city, London's Docklands are on the opposite side of the Thames to Greenwich. Easy access is provided
by the DLR National Rail connections to Docklands Light Railway (DLR) at Limehouse, Stratford, Greenwich, and Lewisham stations.
Canary Wharf Station is built on the site of the old West India Docks and takes its name from the former sea trade with the Canary Islands. It is said
that during the period of 1802 to 1980, the area was one of the busiest docks in the world with up to 50,000 people employed.
Unfortunately during World War II, the docks were heavily bombed destroying almost all of the original warehouses. There was a brief recovery in the
1950 but by 1980, the docks were closed.
Today Canary Wharf is glorious and prosperous once again and represents London's flagship area for commercial activities and is also a hub of
technology. The wharf contains the three tallest buildings in the UK:
â€¢	One Canada Square, often called the Canary Wharf Tower, stands 771 feet or 235.1 meters tall.
â€¢	HSBC Tower stands 654 feet o
