62-Story Residential Tower for Western End of Canary Wharf
Newfoundland, a 62-story skyscraper housing 636 apartments, retail and amenities, is set to open on the western end of Canary Wharf in London in December, The Telegram reported. According to Canary Wharf Group, a joint venture of Brookfield Property Partners and Qatar Investment Authority, the tower provides a counterbalance to the primarily office landscape, with architecture by Horden Cherry Lee befitting its prominent spot on the skyline. Residents will have easy access to public transit and enjoy city views through floor-to-ceiling windows. A Canary Wharf Group spokeswoman shared that, despite the U.K.’s and Canary Wharf ’s close ties to Canada, the tower’s name is from a parking lot the developer was surprised to find out it owned, making it “new found land.”
