An office rental guide to Canary Wharf by Abbey Business Centres

28/10/2009

Once famed for its dockyards which welcomed ships and their cargo from all over the world, Canary Wharf is now synonymous with a very different industry all together; International Finance.

Work to turn the area into the financial centre of Europe started back in the mid 1980’s and still continues to this very day. During the last 25 years, Docklands has become one of the most attractive districts for businesses looking for London office space and is now a real rival to the more traditional financial heartland in The City.

Connected to Central London via the London Underground and DLR, Canary Wharf is easily accessible for the estimated 100,000 people who work in and around Docklands. London City Airport, built as part of the regeneration plan for the area, is also close by for those visitors coming into the capital from further afield. For drivers, the A13 and A406 provide the main routes of entry into the estate.

Renting an office in Docklands also means you are on the doorstep of Central London’s second biggest indoor shopping centre – Jubilee Place. Situated directly underneath the iconic One Canada Square tower, the centre boasts more than 200 shops, restaurants and bars providing workers with numerous ways to relax whilst away from their desks.

The current list of residents who have office space in Canary Wharf is certainly a distinguished one. HSBC and Citibank have housed thousands of their employees in their own skyscrapers – 8 Canada Square and Citigroup Centre respectively - whilst Trinity Mirror, Barclays, Reuters and Morgan Stanley also have a significant presence in Docklands.

With office rental prices in Canary Wharf recently showing signs of recovery, there is no better time to start your search for Docklands office space.

Abbey Business Centres have prime high specification serviced office space on the 37th floor of the One Canada Square building now available to rent. With prices starting from only £700 per workstation per month, including the use of a professionally trained reception team and preferential meeting room access, our office space packages would be suitable for any business and of any size.
