The creation of a new 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 landmark in riverside living.
"Highlights include English National Ballet and London Film School’s new homes, and a new pedestrian bridge bringing Crossrail and DLR transport links to within a short walk away"
The development includes over 1,700 residential units and 20,000 square metres of office space. Highlights include English National Ballet and London Film School’s new homes, a new pedestrian bridge bringing Crossrail and DLR transport links to within a short walk away, fantastic River 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.
