The concept of Canary Wharf was a courageous move to develop an international business nucleus, on what was essentially wasteland in the East end of London. After years of planning, development and tireless promotion gradually the axis of the City of London began to shift. One by one key businesses and organisations made the bold step of moving from the traditional 'Square Mile' to this new contrived business environment called Canary Wharf.

  • The first company to occupy offices at Canary Wharf was the State Street Bank.
  • Now the Wharf is home to the world or European headquarters of numerous major banks, professional services firms and media organisations including Barclays, Citigroup, Clifford Chance, Credit Suisse, Infosys, Fitch Ratings, HSBC, J.P. Morgan, KPMG, MetLife, Morgan Stanley, RBC, Skadden, and Thomson Reuters
  • Canary Wharf comprises 35 building, 3 shopping malls and contains over 14,000,000 square feet of office space
  • Approximately 95, 000 people are employed at Canary Wharf
