Canary Wharf - One Park Drive, E14
Designed by Herzog & de Meuron, One Park Drive is the new district's signature building. Positioned at the head of the dock, it proudly represents everything that makes the new neighbourhood so special - a unique architectural achievement thoughtfully designed to be the very best in city and waterside living.

* Located on Canary Wharf's 128 acre private Estate
* A full suite of residential amenities over 2 floors
* Outstanding location surrounded by parks and waterways
* Incredible level of specification
* Terraces to all apartments
One Park Drive is a single harmonious building, however its 58 storeys are made up of three
typologies, each with its own distinct characteristics.
The lower floors contain the Loft apartments - some of One Park Drive's largest apartments.
With high ceilings and wrap-around terraces, they are designed to make the most of the connection to both the green spaces and the waterfront.
The Cluster forms the heart of the building. It is the typology that contains the greatest variety of
apartments. The lower levels are connected with the parks and the water, the higher floors with the sky.
The upper floors contain the Bay apartments. They have double-height terraces which are set
back into the building. Their design is focused on maximising light and the views across London.
Every apartment has terraces designed to work seamlessly with the interior living spaces. There is also great variety; many of the Cluster apartments have two outside areas, the Lofts have
expansive wrap-around terraces and the Bay apartment terraces have double-height space above
them. Each terrace is naturally sheltered within the building's form, yet connected with the scenery
beyond. They're spaces that invite you outside.
The apartment interiors deliver a complexity and surprise that complements One Park Drive's
powerful exterior form, as well as creating a sense of calm and a luxurious intimacy.
The interiors focus on natural materials and finishes throughout with special attention being
paid to the tactile surfaces. The three typologies so powerfully expressed in the exterior architecture have their own distinct yet harmonious personalities.
One Park Drive celebrates its communal spaces. Spread across the ground and first floors, they are all fully integrated into the life of the building and positively engage with its surroundings.
The reception, concierge, lounge, library and cinema are all on the ground floor. The first floor
houses the exclusive health club including a 20-metre pool, gym, studio space and spa. Dramatic floor-to-ceiling glazing invites stunning views across the surrounding parks, gardens and water.
Canary Wharf Group's careful stewardship of the private Canary Wharf Estate over the past 30 years has made it one of the safest, connected, best maintained and most vibrant districts in the capital. And now the most exciting evolution in the Estate's history has begun - the creation of the new residential district.
It will be a neighbourhood of green spaces and waterside boardwalks. A neighbourhood that's both an oasis of calm and one of the most well connected in Europe. A neighbourhood where it will be just as easy to grab the essentials of daily life as it will be to take in live music or theatre. It will be a local neighbourhood with all the benefits of being part of a private Estate.
Canary Wharf has always placed the highest priority on creating beautiful and versatile open spaces – spaces that are used as part of the daily life on the Estate, and that provide a sense of serenity and well-being. The residential district continues this approach – over a third of the development is dedicated to open spaces, bringing nine new acres of parks and gardens to the Estate. Canary Wharf is home to London’s largest collection of outdoor public art (with 67 artworks to date) from some of the well-respected artists working today. It has received numerous awards including the international Christie’s Award for Best Corporate Art Collection. The Estate hosts over 200 arts, entertainment and cultural events every year, with a carefully curated programme that contains some of the world’s best performers and has something for everyone – from the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra playing Gershwin and Shakespeare relayed live from Stratford to afternoon jazz and late night comedy; from lunch markets and fashion shows to children’s workshops, ice skating, street theatre, public talks, dance, sport and more.
The Canary Wharf Estate is a major retail destination, currently is home to over 300 shops, cafés, bars and restaurants across five shopping malls, including the award-winning leisure development, Crossrail Place, housing one of London's most stunning roof gardens.
Canary Wharf is well-connected: it’s a short distance from London City Airport, there’s the Jubilee Underground line, two Docklands Light Railway stations and a Thames River Bus pier. The arrival of Crossrail in 2018 will mean you’ll be able to reach the West End in 13 minutes and Heathrow in just 39 minutes.
