With cranes swinging and concrete pouring at both ends of the estate it’s perhaps little surprise you wait for a topping out and two come along at once.
As well as Newfoundland reaching peak height, the slightly more modestly-sized 10 Park Drive at Wood Wharf has risen to its full 149 metres.
Also residential, although for sale rather than rent, the Stanton Williams Architects-designed structure will house 345 apartments when complete towards the end of 2019.
Currently off the market, 80% have been sold with 60 buyers camping out overnight to secure the first properties at launch in July 2015.
Canary Wharf Group residential sales director Brian De’ath, said: “This is an exciting step in the construction of 10 Park Drive, both for the area and for us at Canary Wharf Group as we top out our first residences on the estate.
“The work that has gone into the development so far has been phenomenal and we look forward to it reaching completion, and for the first residents to move into Canary Wharf.
“Some of our purchasers camped out overnight to be able to secure a home at 10 Park Drive, which I strongly believe says a great deal about the quality of the offering here.
“The extensive calendar of events, diverse community and excellent transport links on the estate are making it an increasingly hard location to beat within the London property market.”
The interiors of the studio, one-bed, two-bed and three-bed properties that will fill the tower have been designed by Make Architects.
Residents will have access to a terrace on the 13th floor, a range of bookable facilities in shared spaces and a health and fitness club with a swimming pool, jacuzzi, sauna, steam room and studio for classes.
For those looking to buy, neighbouring tower One Park Drive is currently on sale with properties starting at £825,000. For more information about homes in Canary Wharf email firstname.lastname@example.org or go to canarywharf.com/ residential
