One Park Drive returns to Bangkok
Canary Wharf Group and JLL announce the launch of an iconic residential tower in Canary Wharf the financial district of London
Canary Wharf Group, one of London's leading developers, is returning to Bangkok with JLL to promote their landmark development, One Park Drive, located on Canary Wharf's private estate. Standing at 58 storeys and designed by Herzog & de Meuron, the Swiss practice behind the Tate Modern and the Bird's Nest in Beijing, One Park Drive will house 483 elegantly designed apartments. One Park Drive features beautifully crafted interiors, an exclusive residents' health club and private balconies providing stunning views of the surrounding docklands and wider London.
Now a leading global centre for business and finance, Canary Wharf takes its name from the area's dockland heritage, specifically the quay where fruit from the Mediterranean and Canary Islands were unloaded. Today, the private 128-acre Estate is one of the world's great city spaces; internationally renowned as one of London's most vibrant districts with a unique waterside location.
One Park Drive will form the centrepiece of Canary Wharf's new district, Wood Wharf. This neighbourhood will welcome a new community with the buzz of city life, filled with up to 3,600 new homes, 380,000 sq.ft. of retail space, eight acres of public spaces, plazas and parks; a place where individuals and families can live, work, relax and play. Amongst this will sit lively high streets, boutique shopping arcades, a vast collection of public art, doctor's surgery and a brand new two-form primary school.
Brian De'ath, Director of Residential Sales at Canary Wharf Group, comments: "The creation of a new residential district represents a unique opportunity to live in one of London's few private estates, with One Park Drive at its epicentre. The development is a truly remarkable work of architecture and in time will become one of the most recognisable buildings in London. The variety of apartments on offer, combined with the excellent residents' amenities, outstanding transport links and busy calendar of events means there is something here for everyone."
One Park Drive itself is divided into three distinct typologies; Loft, Cluster and Bay. The Loft apartments, which feature interiors by Bowler James Brindley, are some of the largest properties available. Situated on floors two to nine, Lofts are designed to make the most of the connection to the surrounding green spaces and waterfront, with generous wraparound terraces and free flowing spaces complete with sliding walls, resin floors and mother of pearl clad bathrooms.
The Cluster apartments, with their interlocking geometric façades, form the heart of the building. With contemporary interiors by Goddard Littlefair, the Cluster typology contains the greatest variety, with the lower levels connected to the parks and water; the higher floors with the sky. The top floors are home to the Bay apartments, which all boast double-height terraces set back into the building. These properties also feature interiors by Goddard Littlefair, with elegant palettes and cool textures, exposed concrete walls, timber panelling, pivot doors and natural stone which all aim to maximise light.
One Park Drive will also offer state of the art amenities designed by GA Design, split over the ground and first floors. Residents will benefit from a sophisticated entrance lobby with 24-hour concierge services; library, cinema room and lounge on the ground floor, whilst the first floor houses an exclusive residents-only health club. Framed by floor-to-ceiling glazing, this calming space, which includes a 20-metre pool, gym, studio space and spa, invites stunning views of the surrounding parks, gardens and water.
With the arrival of Crossrail in December this year 2018, residents of One Park Drive will be able to take advantage of Canary Wharf's unparalleled transport links; accessing Bond Street only 13 minutes, Paddington in 17 minutes and Heathrow Airport in under 40 minutes. London City Airport is also a short 10-minute car journey away, whilst the Jubilee underground line and Docklands Light Railway provide quick links to Stratford (for Westfield Shopping Centre) in 11 minutes, Tower Bridge and the historic Tower of London in 15 minutes and Westminster (for the Houses of Parliament, Westminster Abbey and Big Ben) in just 10 minutes.
As a private Estate, Canary Wharf is run by a team of over 1,000 people working around the clock. This dedicated team manage the day-to-day facilities, tend to the green spaces and provide Estate-wide concierge services, as well as co-ordinate the extensive arts and events programme.
The event for One Park Drive will be held at Park Hyatt Bangkok on 12th July 2018. JLL expects the property to draw interest from high-net-worth Thai individuals who are looking for an opportunity to invest in one of the world's most popular real estate market, and Thai families looking for own home for their children studying in London.
