A few snaps I took when out walking around Canary Wharf last weekend. Back then, the sun was still shining – right before it was replaced with grey skies and rain yesterday. Ah, summer… it was nice while it lasted.
We walked past the huge building site over at what was Wood Wharf and, over the coming years, will be a major mixed-use development that extends Canary Wharf considerably.
What was really impressive was the fact that it’s largely going to be built on land reclaimed from within the dock. Hence the massive holes and extensive new constructions to keep the water back. It’s both impressive and ugly at the same time.
To be honest, this whole neighbourhood seems to be a building site right now and it’s getting annoying. The works at Ten Bank Street are a particular eye-sore. Both the noise and the dirt are disruptive, but I’m just focusing on how nice it’ll all look when it’s finished.
