Canary Wharf Group’s residential leasing arm – Vertus – launches nine new apartments on the 35th floor at its first Build to Rent scheme at 10 George Street in Canary Wharf. Rising 128 metres above Wood Wharf, the top-floor apartments overlook waterside gardens and offer sweeping views across the O2, Greenwich and the Thames Barrier. 

Designed by GRID Architects, the new apartments are housed in the distinctively designed podium and tower building which fronts onto Canary Wharf’s South Dock. All apartments feature furnished interiors from award-winning interior designers Camerich, skilfully combining a considered blend of colours and textures throughout. This, in addition to the sense of space and breath-taking views offered by the full-height windows, and with high-spec Siemens appliances throughout, creates a range of stylish apartments that feel like a secret oasis above the city.

The collection of apartments range from 445 sq ft to 1,015 sq ft and include one studio, five one-bedroom and three two-bedroom properties – available in a variety of different layouts and sizes. Apartments are open-plan to accentuate the natural light, and incorporate the highest quality materials and fittings, from the glass balustrades of the balconies to the dark wood furniture and fitted wardrobes in the bedrooms.

“Across London, Build to Rent apartments continue to be in great demand, but here in Wood Wharf we can offer residents a truly unique experience – contemporary homes in architecturally remarkable buildings with the levels of service and facilities more commonly found in luxury hotels. Our latest apartments at 10 George Street are some of the best Build to Rent homes we’ve offered yet, providing exceptional living spaces in a thriving new community, and with amenities that more than meet the demands of modern work patterns and the desire for engaging and interactive social spaces.”

Alastair Mullens, Managing Director, Vertus

Residents benefit from 10 George Street’s 6,000 sq ft of communal social spaces which have been furnished by Angel O’Donnell. This includes outdoor heaters and a BBQ on the terrace, and a furnished lounge with TV, games consoles, pool table and board games to encourage social interaction. The lounge area opens out onto a south-facing terrace with Med-style seating and day beds offering dockside views of Harbour Quay Gardens.

Residents will also benefit from the artisanal, natural and sustainable MMy Wood Wharf by Mercato Metropolitano, which is due to open in spring and will occupy two levels of 10 George Street. Known for its Elephant & Castle and Mayfair markets, MMy Wood Wharf will include a discerning deli/grocery store offering an extensive selection of fresh and healthy world products as well as an onsite bakery. Further plans include a MMy live jazz music venue at lower ground level.

Emilia’s Crafted Pasta opened on the ground floor of 10 George Street on 21 February 2022 – and offers Italian cuisine. As with all Emilia’s restaurants, the custom-designed kitchen and bar areas will be fully open for diners to watch the theatrics of drinks and dishes being freshly prepared. Alfresco diners can enjoy views of the surrounding water and green spaces and stunning Wood Wharf architecture. 

Vertus’ 10 George Street was the first Build to Rent development on the Canary Wharf estate, which opened its doors to residents in February 2020. The scheme is built to the same high standards of sustainability consistent across the Canary Wharf Group residential and office portfolio.
