A creative quarter that is distinctly separate, yet also collaborative and welcoming is what people find when they explore the waterside phenomenon that is London City Island. Formed from one of the disused docks that line the East London stretch of the River Thames, this imaginative new development provides wide open views of all the nearby Canary Wharf skyscrapers as well as the opposing O2 Arena.
The one and two bedroom apartments for sale are split into Java Wharf, Grantham House and Amelia House and all offer a contemporary design ethos, wood flooring, integrated kitchens and balcony views. Residents can enjoy a private fitness suite, clubhouse and a 24-hour concierge. Prominent neighbours on the island include the English National Ballet and the London Film School which means you could be queueing for your morning latte alongside a prima ballerina or an internationally-acclaimed director.
A period-style red footbridge connects the development to the Canning Town DLR stop which is just a two-minute hop from the Canary Wharf Crossrail and Jubilee Line Tube network. This places the City and the West End within convenient reach and also means that Heathrow Airport can be reached within three-quarters of an hour. Other transportation refinements include a cable car ride across the Thames to the O2 Arena and a fast riverboat service to Central London.
