Canary Wharf is an area of London, England, located on the Isle of Dogs in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets
There is nothing unique or special about the name Canary Wharf. This area was built on 97 acres of the old West Indies Dock and even though this was one of the busiest dock areas in the country, its name was not good enough for the new development.
Instead, Canary Wharf came from the name of No. 32 berth of the West Wood Quay of the Import Dock. The name Canary Wharf was first applied to this dock because it dealt in trade with the Canary Islands.
The Home Of Tall Buildings
This is what this section of London is now famous for. With over 16,000,000 square feet of office and retail space, this area has become a financial hub for the country.
That office and retail spaces are housed in over 30 buildings ranging from 344 feet high to the 3rd tallest in the country, 1 Canada Square, at 771 feet high. The latter has 50 floors to it as well.
