One Park Drive, Canary Wharf Group’s landmark residential development, has successfully sold out of its largest available apartments. The three-bedroom Loft apartments, which boast stylish open plan living spaces and stunning wraparound terraces, have been snapped up by purchasers looking for spacious city homes. One Park Drive, which will house 483 apartments, offers the ultimate in city and riverside living, with stunning views of the surrounding docklands and wider London. Remaining apartments are available to purchase, with studios starting from £665,000.
Designed by leading Swiss practice Herzog & de Meuron, One Park Drive is divided into three distinct typologies; Loft, Cluster and Bay. The Loft apartments, which feature interiors by Bowler James Brindley, are some of the largest properties available. Situated on floors two to nine, Lofts are designed to make the most of the connection to the surrounding green spaces and waterfront, with generous wraparound terraces framed by fluted terracotta panels, naturally sheltered within the building’s form. The Lofts feature contemporary, free-flowing spaces, complete with sliding walls, cool resin floors and unique mother of pearl clad bathrooms.
The Cluster apartments, with their interlocking geometric façades, form the heart of the building. With striking interiors by Goddard Littlefair, the Cluster typology contains the greatest variety, with the lower levels connected to the parks and water; the higher floors with the sky. The top floors are home to the Bay apartments, which all boast double-height terraces set back into the building. These properties also feature interiors by Goddard Littlefair, with elegant palettes and cool textures, including concrete walls, timber panelling, pivot doors and natural stone, all of which maximise light.
Brian De’ath, Director of Residential Sales at Canary Wharf Group, said: “To have sold all of the three-bedroom Lofts is a huge achievement for the One Park Drive team. With the majority of new build schemes, the smaller units are the first to go, yet at One Park Drive, the opposite is true. The demand for the larger apartments is testament to the unparalleled architecture and interior design, as well as the extensive facilities, dedicated open spaces and diverse events programme of the wider Canary Wharf estate.”
“We have now sold over 60% of apartments at One Park Drive and the larger units have formed a significant proportion of that. The new Wood Wharf neighbourhood will be a place where individuals and families can live, work, relax and play and it is great to see buyers invest in that community.”
The development will also offer state of the art amenities designed by GA Design, split over the ground and first floors. Residents will benefit from a sophisticated entrance lobby with 24-hour concierge services; library, cinema room and lounge on the ground floor, whilst the first floor houses an exclusive residents-only health club. Framed by floor-to-ceiling glazing, this calming space, which includes a 20-metre pool, gym, studio space and spa, invites stunning views of the surrounding parks, gardens and water.
One Park Drive will form the centrepiece of Canary Wharf’s new district, Wood Wharf. This neighbourhood will welcome a new community with the buzz of city life, filled with up to 3,600 new homes, 380,000 sq.ft. of retail space, eight acres of public spaces, plazas and parks. Amongst this will sit lively high streets, boutique shopping arcades, a vast collection of public art, doctor’s surgery and a brand new two-form primary school.
As a private Estate, Canary Wharf is run by a team of over 1,000 people working around the clock. This dedicated team manage the day-to-day facilities, tend to the green spaces and provide Estate-wide concierge services, as well as co-ordinate the extensive arts and events programme.

Off the back of successfully settling a $48m syndicated first mortgage for a residential apartment development in Sans Souci just weeks ago, Sydney-based real estate investment manager Centennial Property Group (CPG) opened a new fund with a focus on the industrial and logistics market, Centennial Industrial and Logistics Fund II (CIL II). The fund, available only to wholesale and private high net worth investors, opened on 1 November and was seeking to raise c. $38 million.
