If you are traveling to London for business, one of the most up and coming neighborhoods for offices is Canary Wharf and the Docklands area. Canary Wharf is located on the north bank of the Thames and is east of Central London. New York Habitat offers apartments in the area, including choices around Tower Hamlets and Canary Wharf as well as apartments in the City neighborhood of London to the west of the Docklands area.
Reasons to choose the Docklands/Canary Wharf area:
The advantages of this neighborhood include lots of new and reconstructed housing, a new train line and less congestion than downtown. The area has many renovated and reconstructed buildings that include converted factories, cleaned up brown fields and new high-rise buildings. Furthermore, the Docklands Light Rail was initially constructed to connect the Canary Wharf area to downtown but has expanded to several other lines. The Jubilee line, built in conjunction with the millennium events, also offers rapid service to the main area within the city. The neighborhood has several parks lining the Thames River and offers views of the new water control gates along the water. Finally, the Docklands area tends to be less congested because the new infrastructure has been built to provide plenty of capacity in the neighborhood.
