On 15th February, the first Vertus residents moved in to 10 George Street’s Canary Wharf apartments. The first members of the Estate’s first ever renting community, they symbolise a watershed moment in its ongoing story.
So, Vertus has officially brought Residential Leasing to Canary Wharf. A long-established shopping and cultural destination – and international business hub – it’s now also a place to call home with residents at its heart.
Wood Wharf springs to life
With this new 23 acre neighbourhood comes a cohort of new bars, cafes and restaurants. Mercato Metropolitano and The London Project lead the way, and will no doubt be followed by similar brands looking to join this exciting new part of the Estate. Meanwhile, wide boardwalks and gardens let all who come here make the most of Wood Wharf’s waterside location.
Without reinventing the formula that’s been the catalyst for Canary Wharf’s success since its inception in the 1980s, Wood Wharf has clearly adjusted it to adapt to the stresses of 21st Century urban living and what people now want from where they live: inclusive spaces and a positive work/life balance.
The Lounge at 10 George Street
More than just a place to call home
10 George Street is the chance to be among the first to experience all this and live within a brand new London neighbourhood.
Life here revolves around cohesive social spaces which are designed to bring people together and interact. A large, elegantly furnished lounge - complete with pool table, shuffleboard and television notifying residents of upcoming events - is the building’s social hub. But it doesn’t begin and end here. Just the other side of its full-height sliding glass doors is the expansive, south-facing terrace giving residents and their guests cinemascape views across South Dock and Harbour Quay Gardens just below. The bar comes complete with a coffee machine and self-service wine machine, so catch-ups can take place over a quick morning cup or a more leisurely evening glass, and then there’s the Parlour: a dining room that can be booked for any occasion. Residents have already put this space to good use entertaining friends and family as they celebrate moving in.
The Terrace at 10 George Street
First, but not the last
10 George Street’s first residents are more than just the initial occupants of a new building, they’re pioneering a whole new way of living within a brand new waterside neighbourhood that is, itself, a new extension of the capital’s most famous Estate and all the events, culture and art that it offers.
Canary Wharf has never been inclined to follow, preferring to take the lead on everything from regeneration to Fintech. And with 10 George Street, it’s now set a new benchmark for how London rents.
