What is in Canary Wharf?
Canary Wharf is planned on a grand scale, yet with meticulous attention to detail. The estate extends to over 86 acres and is so called because when in use as a dock, many of the imports were from the Canary Islands. Approximately 6 million net square feet of office and retail space has been constructed to date with a further 8.1 million square feet under construction.
The first tenants moved into Canary Wharf in August 1991. Now, approx. 95% of the existing space is leased with 55,000 people working here. The current development comprises of eighteen office buildings, a retail centre, conference and banqueting centre, Docklands Light Railway station, a London Underground station, landscaped grounds and five car parks (in addition to car parking below the office buildings).
