Vertus, Canary Wharf Group

: Horden Cherry Lee

Managed by Canary Wharf Group’s residential leasing arm Vertus, Newfoundland is a remarkable new Build to Rent (BTR) development which launched in May 2021. The tallest BTR building in the UK, Newfoundland comprises 636 apartments spread across 56 floors, with a total height of 220 metres, offering residents a rare opportunity to claim a piece of the London skyline.

With a variety of homes to rent, ranging from studios to three-bedroom apartments, Newfoundland has been conceived with a broad range of residents in mind. All the properties at the development are open-plan and benefit from an abundance of natural light thanks to their floor-to-ceiling windows, as well as Juliet balconies, whilst each home offers 20% more space than an average London apartment. Residents have access to a private dining room, which can be booked for special occasions, and there is also a screening room with a wide-screen TV and games consoles, suited to a variety of different uses. A 24-hour concierge is in place to assist residents with enquiries and receive parcels, ensuring a seamless, safe and secure experience. Newfoundland’s strong sustainability credentials make it a popular choice among eco-conscious home seekers. The building runs from 100% renewable electricity, and the PV solar panels on its roof help save over 8,000kg of Co2 emissions (equivalent to saving 768 gallons of diesel).
