Thameside living in Canary Wharf
The dock-side areas of Canary Wharf and Rotherhithe face each other across the Thames. Living on the river has lots of advantages. The beautiful views and waterside walks are good for body and mind. Living beside any ‘blue space’ has long since been proven to be beneficial to the health. Furthermore it is always profitable in the long run as properties on the river are generally in big demand.
For some, the river can provide an opportunity to commute in a faster and more efficient way to other parts of the city too. Not everybody wants to tackle the heat and crowding of the London underground. These people explore alternative routes to their destinations.
There are already many river crossings on the Thames bringing people from one side to another via riverbus. Mayor Sadiq Khan, alongside TFL have now proposed a new bridge between Rotherhithe and Canary Wharf which could make the journey even better for walkers and cyclists by 2024. An improved commute to Canary Wharf would give a boost to the more affordable residential district of Rotherhithe.
