A new benchmark in large-scale placemaking

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 spectacular landmark in riverside living.
