EXCLUSIVE RIVERSIDE LIVING WITHIN ITS VERY OWN ISLAND
London City Island is unique new riverside development and 12 acre neighbourhood – creating a ‘mini-Manhattan’ – in Leamouth, London. Due for completion in 2016, it is adjacent to London’s most exciting creative and commercial districts.
City Island will be a dramatic new cityscape, rising at the point where the Thames meets the River Lea and set against stunning views of Canary Wharf and the City of London’s iconic skyscrapers. It will see the creation of 1,700 new apartments, stunning al fresco spaces, waterside parks, vibrant new bars and restaurants, artist studios, boutique shops, school and exceptional private residents’ club.
The walkways and public squares are choreographed so as to offer frequent views of Canary Wharf, the O2 Arena and the nearby ecology park, but also to give the sense of being somehow enclosed within a vibrant, latter-day citadel. All of the Island’s residents are members of the exclusive City Island Social Club. With this comes access to a range of elegantly designed private facilities including a clubhouse, a gym, a screening room and a grocer’s shop, as well as various sports facilities, pools and gardens. This is contemporary waterside living at its best.
The range of apartments available varies from one bedroom suites to expansive penthouses.
Views are spectacular in any season or at any time of day: the rivers Thames and Lea are a constant presence, as are sight lines of landmarks such as the dazzling Canary Wharf cityscape, the otherworldly dome of the O2 Arena, the epochal Olympic Park and the baroque shape of St Paul’s Cathedral, a reminder that the historic City of London is just a short trip on the Docklands Light Railway.
The delivery of the footbridge will make City Island one of the best connected development sites in London with a 2 minute walk to its very own Jubilee Line and DLR station at Canning Town. 20 minutes to Bond Street, 15 to Westminster. The easy access to the Jubilee means one stop to the world’s most successful music venue at the O2 and two stops to Europe’s largest retail centre, Westfield at Stratford and Queen Elizabeth Park.
The recent acquisition by Chinese developer ABP (Advance Business Parks) of 35 acres of land adjacent to City Airport at Albert Docks is a major coup for London with the former Mayor Boris Johnson stating the multi-billion investment will make this location London’s third financial centre.
