First build-to-rent development in Canary Wharf unveiled

Canary Wharf Group’s build-to-rent operator Vertus has unveiled its first development at 10 George Street – which will be the first of three.

The apartments, which will range from studio to three-beds at the 327-unit building, will be available to rent from early 2020.

The show floor is available for viewings on selected open days, while apartments will start from £1,950 per calendar month.

Alastair Mullens, head of Vertus, said: “The apartments at 10 George Street are set to raise the standards of build-to-rent in London.

“As a new residential landlord for Canary Wharf, Vertus will provide a fantastic experience for those who rent with Vertus, with varied facilities, an exciting events programme and 24/7 concierge, all this without the commitment of buying.

“We expect to see a strong demand for these apartments once they launch in 2020.”

The development comprises 6,000 sq. ft. of Club Vertus social spaces, including lounge, expansive south-facing garden terrace, private event space, and a bar area with automatic winedispensers. Several of the areas will be bookable for private use by residents.

The building will also host a private gym studio for residents, as well as two Sleep Suites for guests of residents to stay in.
