Now a main attraction in its own right, Canary Wharf is the perfect area to wind down after work with its exquisite restaurants, bars and cafés, complemented by a beautiful water frontage where luxury yachts are docked. As of 2021, it is now home to 5 separate shopping malls with 300+ shops, F&B and the largest Waitrose in the UK, as well as pop-up shops and food trucks which offer a wealth of cuisine culture as the area's resident population increases.
Signalling its ongoing strength and as a diversification away from financial service industries, Canary Wharf is set to become the home of a new world-leading life sciences hub with an 823,000 sqft laboratory and investment in a second £300 million facility.
Canary Wharf boasts a well-paid (average wages of £105,000 pa*) working population of 120,000 daily with nearly 400,000 jobs, as well as over 16 million sqft of office and retail space, and the third-largest shopping centre in London.

Aspen will be Canary Wharf’s second-tallest residential building and will define the district’s skyline with its statement architecture.
Aspen is the jewel in the crown of Consort Place, a fresh destination with cafés, bars, activity spaces, education facility, health centre, restaurant and a brand-new adjoining Dorsett Hotel. A 160-year-old public house, The North Pole, will be restored and reopened, which will add further vibrancy to the area.
Residents will be able to take full advantage of Dorsett's exquisite F&B and services, such as housekeeping, laundry and dry cleaning, , pet care services and many more.
There is also a complete range of premium facilities, such as the 24-hour concierge services, the Aspen Club: which includes a games room, cinema, private dining room, wellness centre, and finally a glorious Sky Lounge on level 63 with a bespoke bar, sophisticated lounge, and snugs with 180-degree unobscured panoramic views.
The Aspen name is inspired by the tall, distinguished and elegant tree that is said to symbolise beauty, adventure and self-expression. The building's three 'petals' create six corners which allow fabulous dual aspect views of Canary Wharf, the City of London to the west, Greenwich Peninsula to the east, Olympic Park to the north, and Maritime Greenwich to the south.
