South Quay Plaza, Canary Wharf

From £695,000

The arrival of Crossrail trains at the latticed Foster + Partner-designed train station in Canary Wharf will be a “gamechanger” for the area, according to Berkeley Homes. That’s why the developer has chosen the business hub– and the station’s Sterling Prize winning architects – to create its tallest ever tower on the south dock. Billed as “London’s youngest landmark”, it’ll house 888 studio to three bedroom apartments in its 68-storey tower. There’ll also be 1.5 acres of public space, shops and an enormous gym and spa on the first floor. A show apartment was unveiled this week and buyers are due to move in by 2020.

Hexagon, Covent Garden

From £1.65m for a two-bed apartment

BNP Paribas has chosen the West End for its first residential scheme. Named after the unusual hexagonal shape of the building, this former 1960s office block is being modernised by architects Michaelis Boyd and A&Q. The 15-storey tower will comprise 46 one to three bedroom apartments and penthouses, alongside 13 more affordable homes. New residents are expected to move in at the start of 2018, and sales were launched this week with 30 per cent of apartments sold off-plan.

Ebury Place, Pimlico

From £699,000

Most homes will have a balcony or terrace and underground parking and cycle storage can be purchased, too. Homes will go on sale on 5 October and they’ll be finished in late 2018.
