Canary Wharf
Wharf
is located on the West India Docks
West India Docks
on the Isle of Dogs. West India Dock Company era[edit] From 1802 to 1939, the area was one of the busiest docks in the world. After the 1960s, the port industry began to decline, leading to all the docks being closed by 1980.[4][5] Of the three main docks of the West India Docks, part of the north side and the entire south side of the Import Dock (North Dock), both sides of the Export Dock (Middle Dock) and the north side of the South Dock were all developed by Robert Milligan
Robert Milligan
(c. 1746-1809) who set up the West India Dock Company. Port of London
Port of London
Authority era[edit] West India Quay

was by this time owned by the Port of London

Wharf
itself takes its name from No. 32 berth of the West Wood Quay of the Import Dock. This was built in 1936 for Fruit Lines Ltd, a subsidiary of Fred Olsen Lines for the Mediterranean
Mediterranean
and Canary Islands
Canary Islands
fruit trade. The Canary islands were so named after the large dogs found there by the Spanish (Gran Canaria from Canine) and as it is located on the Isle of Dogs, the quay and warehouse were given the name Canary Wharf.[6] London Docklands Development Corporation era[edit] After the docks closed in 1980, the British Government adopted policies to stimulate redevelopment of the area, including the creation of the London Docklands Development Corporation (LDDC) in 1981 and the granting of Urban Enterprise Zone status to the Isle of Dogs in 1982.[5] The Canary Wharf
Wharf
of today began when Michael von Clemm, former chairman of Credit Suisse First Boston
Credit Suisse First Boston
(CSFB), came up with the idea to convert Canary Wharf
Wharf
into a back office. Further discussions with G Ware Travelstead led to proposals for a new business district and included the LDDC developing a cheap light metro scheme, called the Docklands Light Railway
Docklands Light Railway
to make use a large amount of redundant railway infrastructure and to improve access. The project was sold to the Canadian company Olympia & York[7] and construction began in 1988, master-planned by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill with Yorke Rosenberg Mardall as their UK advisors, and subsequently by Koetter Kim. The first buildings were completed in 1991, including One Canada Square, which became the UK's tallest building at the time and a symbol of the regeneration of Docklands. By the time it opened, the London commercial property market had collapsed, and Olympia and York
Olympia and York
Canary Wharf
Wharf
Limited filed for bankruptcy in May 1992. Initially, the City of London
City of London
saw Canary Wharf
Wharf
as an existential threat. It modified its planning laws to expand the provision of new offices in the City of London, for example, creating offices above railway stations (Blackfriars) and roads (Alban Gate). The resulting oversupply of office space contributed to the failure of the Canary Wharf
Wharf
project. Modern Canary Wharf[edit] In December 1995 an international consortium, backed by the former owners of Olympia & York and other investors, bought the scheme. The new company was called Canary Wharf
Wharf
Limited, and later became Canary Wharf
Wharf
Group. Docklands was the target of 1996 Docklands bombing
1996 Docklands bombing
by the IRA in February 1996, killing two people and injuring more than a hundred. In 1997, some residents living on the Isle of Dogs
Isle of Dogs
launched a lawsuit against Canary Wharf
Wharf
Ltd for private nuisance because the tower interfered with television signals. The residents lost the case.[8] Recovery in the property market generally, coupled with continuing demand for large floorplate Grade A office space, slowly improved the level of interest. A critical event in the recovery was the much-delayed start of work on the Jubilee Line Extension, which the government wanted ready for the Millennium celebrations. In March 2004, Canary Wharf Group
Canary Wharf Group
plc. was taken over by a consortium of investors, backed by its largest shareholder Glick Family Investments[9] and led by Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley
using a vehicle named Songbird Estates plc. At the peak of property prices in 2007, the HSBC
HSBC
building sold for a record £1.1 billion.[10] In March 2014 planning permission was granted for the second residential building on the Canary Wharf
Wharf
estate, a 58-storey tower including 566 apartments plus shops and a health club.[11] In July 2014 Canary Wharf Group
Canary Wharf Group
was granted planning permission for a major eastwards expansion of the Canary Wharf
Wharf
estate.[12][13] The plans include the construction of 30 buildings comprising a total of 4.9 million square feet, including shops, 1.9 million square feet of commercial offices and 3,100 homes.[12][13] Construction is planned to commence in autumn 2014 with the first buildings to be occupied at the end of 2018.[12] In 2014, Singapore listed Oxley Holdings, together with developer Ballymore UK, have a joint venture to set up a new waterfront township of Royal Wharf
Wharf
with 3,385 new homes housing over 10,000 people. Tallest buildings[edit] This table lists completed buildings in Canary Wharf

Wharf
developers played a pro-active role in improving transport links, which they recognised as essential to the success of the project. Beginning in 1985, they proposed extension of the Docklands Light Railway (DLR) to Bank, and upgrading of frequencies and capacity. The DLR now serves four stations in the area: West India Quay, Canary Wharf, Heron Quays
Heron Quays
and South Quay
South Quay
DLR stations with two additional stations located close by just beyond the district, Poplar and Blackwall DLR stations. In 1988, they proposed construction of a second rail line to Docklands, which ultimately became the Jubilee Line Extension. After the Jubilee Extension opened in 1999, Canary Wharf
Wharf
began to actively promote Crossrail, as a new station on Crossrail's Elizabeth line

Heron Quays
Station, one of the first stations to be built in the Canary Wharf
Wharf
estate, was first opened in 1987. The station has two platforms in use, is in Travelcard Zone 2, and is on the Lewisham
Lewisham
branch, between Canary Wharf
Wharf
and South Quay. The station was moved 200 metres south (to fit inside the new buildings) and a longer platform was built at this new site to accommodate three-unit trains planned as part of the DLR Capacity Enhancement; the station re-opened on 18 December 2002. While Canary Wharf
Wharf
Station had been part of the original DLR plans, but the station was not ready when the DLR opened in August 1987. It was originally planned that the station would be similar to the original station at Heron Quays, with two small platforms either side of the tracks. The station is located on the DLR between Heron Quays station and the West India Quay

station, in Travelcard Zone 2.
