Vertus, the Build to Rent arm of Canary Wharf Group has expanded its living sector offering with two new serviced apartment buildings at 3 and 15 West Lane. Designed by HTA Design, the buildings seamlessly blend contemporary architecture with Vertus’ signature premium service.

The buildings will provide 378 fashionably furnished studio apartments and are ideal for travellers and city dwellers alike, as they are available for short-to-medium stays. 3 and 15 West Lane are scheduled for completion in December 2024, opening the doors to its first guest stays in January 2025.

Guests at both building have access to shared amenities, including a lush garden lounge and landscaped terrace, a private dining area, residents’ lounge and co-working hub.

“Launching 3 and 15 West Lane is another exciting milestone in the evolution of the residential rental offer in Canary Wharf. Last year we witnessed record visitor levels to the Estate, with over 67 million visitors. Now, for the first time, we will be able to provide more of those visitors with an outstanding apartment coupled with the best-in-class customer service that Vertus is renowned for.

“Our new flexible offer is a perfect way for guests to get a taste of living in Canary Wharf, with the option to then upgrade to longer tenancies within our residential apartment buildings.

“We have all the ingredient here for an incredible stay – world class transport, some of London’s best restaurants, and tranquil blue and green spaces. We can’t wait to welcome a new wave of guests early next year, adding another dimension to Canary Wharf’s flourishing community.”

Guests also have access to the exclusive Vertus+ programme, a wider social community. The extensive programme of social soirees is orchestrated by a dedicated in-house team, ranging from cooking masterclasses to cocktail mixology lessons to Wine Wednesday club gatherings. Each event is designed to make it easier to meet like-minded people – fostering an instant yet sustainable community spirit. 

The West Lane buildings are conveniently located near the Estate’s flourishing food and beverage scene. With Hawksmoor, Dishoom, Blacklock and Fish Game minutes away, guests will also be able to enjoy the Roe, Hovarda, Kricket and SOMA which are due to launch soon.

Surrounded by 16.5 acres of green space, encompassing leafy Harbord Square Park, serene South Dock and vibrant Harbour Quay Gardens, guests can take advantage of outdoor activities such as open water swimming, GoBoats and Padium – Canary Wharf’s premium padel club.

Wider plans currently underway include the creation of a new green spine through the centre of the Estate, transforming Middle Dock into a new destination for swimming and water sports.

Guests will also benefit from world class transport connections including the Elizabeth and Jubilee lines, where they can reach central London within 15 minutes.

London City Airport and Heathrow Airport can also be reached via direct services in 15 and 45 minutes respectively, making Canary Wharf an ideal location to explore the city.
