Better Community

Our vision is to be the leader in transforming urban spaces into extraordinary places. For us, an extraordinary place is one where everyone feels included: tenants, visitors, customers, residents, employees, and local community members. We’ve made Canary Wharf into a destination where people come not only to work, but to live, relax, and enjoy the range of arts, culture and sports programmes we provide.

We’re creating a place that benefits everyone, not only by providing enriching spaces but by supporting our local economy, schools and talent. We believe that everyone should benefit from our developments, which is why we’ve been committed to working closely with the community since day one. Today, we provide financial support, space and our employees’ skills and time to schools, businesses and charities in our local community.

Since 1987 we have transformed the docklands into a thriving district, reclaiming a former industrial site and turning it into a place that supports economic growth, fosters creativity and promotes wellbeing. By creating truly inclusive spaces, we are creating a better place for the whole community.
