From £550,000

Enjoy views of Canary Wharf’s rapidly rising skyline from the tower of a new development that’s less than a ten minute walk from all the shopping and nightlife it has to offer. The Canary Wharf and City View Collection, the third phase to go on sale at Manhattan Plaza, comprises nine one and two bedroom apartments, all with private balconies or terraces, inspired by New York’s Meatpacking District, says architect Barton Wilmore. Due to be finished in the autumn of 2017, buyers will also have access to two rooftop gardens and an onsite gym, not to mention the new Crossrail station when it opens in 2018.
