Luxury living in the former working-class district. Ships from the West Indies used to be unloaded on the Isle of Dogs, but today London has its second major business centre there; Canary Wharf. A spectacular addition to the skyline in many ways is the 226-metre, 62-story Newfoundland Tower, which opened in spring 2021. The tallest “built-to-rent” residential tower in Great Britain offers breathtaking views and first-class services for the tenants of the 636 apartments, and a façade that put the Newfoundland Tower in the top league of the style-defining skyscrapers of Canary Wharf.
