10 George Street (Wood Wharf E2)
10 George Street, also known as Vertus, is the first residential development completed on the Canary Wharf Group’s new private estate. It is the first of three build to rent properties commissioned by the rental arm of the Canary Wharf Group, known as Vertus. GRID Architects, based in Southwark, were commissioned by the Canary Wharf Group to design the 37 Storey tower.
The new district, Wood Wharf, will house up to 3,600 new homes, 350,000sq. ft of retail space and eight acres of public spaces, adding to the already extensive offering of Canary Wharf. Already well-connected by the Jubilee and DLR lines, the arrival of the Elizabeth line will make Canary Wharf even more accessible.
10 George Street houses 327 apartments, with a main tower and a six-storey podium. This podium enables space for an expansive roof terrace, amongst other social spaces. The building stands directly in front of South Dock, to the east of the much slender 10 Park Drive, where the access system was also installed by Integral Cradles.
Due to the shape of the façade and high-level access required on the roof, Integral Cradles provided a bespoke BMU, giving both 100% façade coverage and suitable high-level access at roof level.
GlND UK is delivering fully comprehensive BMU maintenance for Vertus Residential Management Limited, Canary Wharf Group’s residential leasing arm.
