One Park Drive, Canary Wharf E14
One Park Drive is a stunning new development designed by Herzog & de Meuron, is the signature building of the new residential district in Canary Wharf, E14. 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.
One Park Drive, Canary Wharf E14 is London’s first residential tower by Herzog & de Meuron, and represents the best of Canary Wharf as the private estate develops into a new destination for London. One Park Drive is not just a unique piece of architecture but something that will set the standard for everything to follow.
The 128 acre Canary Wharf Estate is one of the world’s great city spaces; internationally renowned as one of London’s most vibrant districts and with a unique waterside location. The Group’s careful stewardship over the last 30 years also means it is recognised for being both beautifully maintained and reassuringly safe. The creation of the residential districts represents a unique opportunity to live on the private estate.
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.
* The first residential building by Herzog & de Meuron in the UK
* 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 apartment
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.
