The first apartments went on sale on 24 September for Wardian London, a new riverside development located moments from Canary Wharf and created by EcoWorld Ballymore.
Each apartment has its own landscaped balcony up to 37.2m in size and overlooks South Dock and Canary Wharf. A rooftop observatory bar will also contain the city's highest botanical gin garden and a 25m open air swimming pool set within a tropical garden. Atriums located throughout the development's two towers will be filled with plants and flowers from around the globe. A public plaza will be landscaped with sunken gardens to immerse residents and visitors in lush greenery upon arrival.
The development takes its name from the Wardian Cases, first created in East London to transport tea plants to India. It is a three minute walk from Canary Wharf and will comprise 624 suites, apartments and penthouses in two buildings of 50 and 55 storeys. Apartments in the East Tower are now on sale with the first residents to move in during 2019.
Landscape architect Huw Morgan from Camlins worked on the project. He said: "Wardian London offers an exceptional opportunity to engage with the natural elements while living in the thriving hub of the city.
"Green space is one of the most sought after commodities in London and Wardian London capitalises on this with abundant planting of more than a hundred different exotic species of plants and flowers across the development. Creating hidden sanctuaries, inspired by Wardian Cases, was of utmost importance in this project to deliver a tangible retreat from city living."
Ballymore will manage the development after completion.
