A new benchmark in large-scale placemaking

The creation of an exclusive island neighbourhood on one of the best-connected sites in London was once just an ambitious vision. Now, it is a stunning reality. Bridging the business might of neighbouring Canary Wharf and the cultural energy of East London, London City Island is one of the most important waterside projects London has seen in recent years. Taking inspiration from the best elements from metropolitan islands across the world, the project combines bold architecture and pioneering landscape design to create a spectacular landmark in riverside living.

“Highlights including English National Ballet’s new rehearsal and performance space and a brand new footbridge bringing Crossrail and DLR transport links to within a short stroll away.”

The development includes 1,600 residential units and 20,000 square metres of office space. Highlights including English National Ballet’s new rehearsal and performance space, a brand new footbridge bringing Crossrail and DLR transport links to within a short stroll away, fantastic Thames views and a range of cafes, shops, restaurants and cultural facilities. More than just a place to live, City Island is a bona fide destination. Devised to complement the neighbouring business district with a high-end residential and cultural offering, this unique location is at the vanguard of a new wave of investment that is building on and expanding the great success story of Canary Wharf.
