Canary Wharf, the country’s premier financial district, is putting bulls and bears on the back burner this summer. Embracing all that is great in British sport, huge screens are being erected in Canada Square Park and Cabot Square to keep residents and local workers fully entertained.
The summer screens will be airing all the top events such as Ascot, F1 and Wimbledon; a selection of films, entertainment, news and cultural events ensure there is something for everyone. Residents at Bellway’s development, Dockside are well placed to enjoy this fabulous line being just a five minute walk to both of these locations. Take a picnic, meet some friends, enjoy cocktails at The Parlour, or inspired Japanese cuisine at ROKA , classic French dishes at Plateau Restaurant, Bar & Grill, the choices are endless.
Emma Denton, Head of Sales at Bellway Homes Thames Gateway, comments: “Canary Wharf is fast becoming a terrific ‘go to’ destination. Our residents can enjoy a myriad of exciting local events to keep themselves entertained and as the transformation gathers pace and more and more residents move in, a vibrant atmosphere has developed enhanced with the wonderful waterside setting. It is of course a fantastically convenient place to live if you work at Canary Wharf, but also tremendously easy for access into much of London. Buyers who aren’t sure whether Canary Wharf is within their budget should really take a look at Dockside and what it offers – they may be pleasantly surprised.”
Dockside’s sleek and contemporary architecture incorporates extensive glass, set in a prime waterfront position, with sweeping views of the Canary Wharf skyline and docks. Inside, Bellway has created a range of spacious and well-appointed two and three bedroom apartments including some impressive duplexes. Dockside offers buyers a great deal for their money, including a 24-hour on-site concierge, balconies with water views to most properties and highly competitive service charges. Testament to their good value, the homes at Dockside have sold well since their launch last year and now only a handful of properties are still available.
Of the homes currently available, The Padstow is a two-bedroom property that includes two balconies, offering a dual aspect, ideal for enjoying relaxing al fresco at any time of the day. The interior is airy and light-filled with an open plan living, kitchen and dining area and full height glazing. There is an en suite to the master bedroom and a modern family bathroom.
Bellway’s high quality specification is on show throughout, including modern kitchens that come fully fitted with a range of BK Nolte soft close units and integrated appliances including a fridge/freezer and electric oven. Oak flooring comes as standard in the living areas and carpets to the bedrooms.
Local amenities are quite literally on the doorstep as the ground floor of Dockside has a range of shops and restaurants. Canary Wharf itself has extensive shopping and leisure facilities with three shopping malls, as well as a wide variety of restaurants, bars and cafes. For entertainment, the O2 Arena and historic Greenwich are easily reached.
Canary Wharf’s excellent transport connections are part of its appeal. Dockside is situated very close Crossharbour DLR station from where is three stops to Canary Wharf, connecting with the Jubilee line, which offers services across London. The area’s transport is set to further benefit from Canary Wharf’s inclusion on the Crossrail line, linking Essex and Kent to Buckinghamshire and Berkshire making east-west travel fast and easy. For international and domestic air travel, London City Airport can be reached in less than 30 minutes by public transport.
