Apartment Complex in London Topped Out

A new apartment complex in the Wood Wharf district of London has been officially topped out. The Canary Wharf Group development, One Park Drive, has reached its full height of 215 metres ahead of its scheduled completion next year. 

Comprising 483 apartments, the landmark Wood Wharf development features a distinctive geometric façade with three unique typologies unmistakable within the building’s form. It is designed by Swiss architect Herzog & de Meuron. 

The Loft apartments are located on floors two to nine and feature interiors by Bowler James Brindley. The 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. These apartments also feature contemporary, free-flowing spaces, complete with sliding walls, cool resin floors and unique mother of pearl clad bathrooms.

Cluster apartments form the heart of the building, located on floors nine to 32. 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 (33 – 57) 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.

One Park Drive apartment complex will 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 views of the surrounding parks, gardens and water.

When complete, the entire Wood Wharf district will offer up to 3,600 new apartments, 350,000 sq ft of shops and restaurants, 2 million sq ft of office space, a new NHS doctor’s surgery and two-form primary school.
