Find commercial property in the Docklands
In the last ten years or so, transport connections to the Docklands have been completely restored with the construction of the Docklands Light Railway (DLR) that now connects the region to the City. Canary Wharf is also served by several city bus routes, as well as six of its own that operate solely within the area. If you’re planning to network within the city, then the Docklands is definitely a great location in which to base your office.
Because of the close proximity to Canary Wharf and the financial district there, the Docklands carries a real prestige amongst businesses, and offers huge potential to any company looking to expand. The area is expected to enjoy continuous ongoing investment in the future, with 30 new buildings comprising a total of 4.9 million square feet in the process of being developed, including 1.9 million square feet of commercial space. If you base yourself in the Docklands, you’re investing in London’s future.
As well as being a notable business district, of course, the Docklands is an enjoyable place in which to spend time. There’s a real buzz in being based in such a reputable area, and the area is now well-served by a variety of different cafes, bars and restaurants. Even within such a busy area, though, there’s still space for green, with Millwall Park and the Millwall Outer Dock offering the chance to relax whilst away from the office.
