Herzog & de Meuron’s first UK homes electrify the London residential market


  • Canary Wharf Group sells over 200 apartments in One Park Drive
  • The 58-storey building is Herzog & de Meuron's first residential design in the UK
  • Architecture aficionados are taking advantage of the rare opportunity to buy a home designed by the Swiss practice
  • Prices start at £645,000 for a studio apartment​

HONG KONG, October 30, 2017 – Demand for One Park Drive, the 58-storey residential building designed by leading architects Herzog & de Meuron, has been incredibly strong and new apartments have now been released to the market.  The project is Herzog & de Meuron's first residential building in the UK and follows critically acclaimed cultural buildings for Laban Dance Centre and Tate Modern elsewhere in the capital. Eager buyers have now bought over 200 apartments within this eye-catching and meticulously designed waterfront building.​

Herzog & de Meuron opted for a cylindrical shape in order to make the building stand out amongst the otherwise square architecture in Canary Wharf. The building is then split into three apartment typologies, Loft, Cluster and Bay each with their own personality. The circular nature of the building will offer generous, multi-aspect views over the surrounding docklands and across London.​

Brian De'ath, Director of Residential Sales, Canary Wharf Group, said: ​

"We knew that this building was likely to be popular when people bought into 10 Park Drive simply to be able to get on the waiting list for the launch of One Park Drive. While we planned for high demand, the sales process has gone better than we had hoped possible at this stage. It is testament to Herzog & de Meuron's reputation for world-class design and Canary Wharf Group's knowledge and expertise in construction and estate management that interest in these properties is so high."​

Sir George Iacobescu, Chief Executive Officer of Canary Wharf Group, said: ​

"Buyers of London property are sharp and sophisticated. They recognise that this building is something very special. As Herzog & de Meuron's first residential project in the UK, this is a rare opportunity for buyers to purchase a London home by these incredible architects."​

Mandy Wong, Head of International Residential at JLL, said: ​

"One Park Drive boasts to be the signature building sitting on the waterfront within the new residential neigbourhood in the Canary Wharf Estate, one of the major business districts in London attracting the very diverse businesses opening offices here.  Travelling across London from Canary Wharf would be even easier and direct after the Elizabeth line open to traffic in 2018.  It would be a total lively neighborhood that offers everything for the very best city and waterside living."​

The new residential address, One Park Drive, is the cornerstone of the future development of 3,300 homes, on the Canary Wharf Estate. One Park Drive will be at the heart of a dynamic social, cultural and business centre, which will include premium offices, world-class shops and restaurants, a school, doctors' surgery and stunning open spaces, including the roof garden at Crossrail Place. With the arrival of the Elizabeth line in 2018, Canary Wharf will be only six minutes to Liverpool Street, within 39 minutes of Heathrow and moments from City Airport and international train services to Europe.​
