Canary Wharf has the distinction of being one of London’s two main financial districts and a major commercial hub in central London. This booming business area is situated in the Tower Hamlets borough of the city. It is home to the second tallest building in the entire United Kingdom Ė One Canada Square. From the early 1800s until the mid-1900s, Canary Wharf was one of the busiest ports in London. The continuous decline of the port industry resulted in all the docks shutting down. Subsequently, by the late 1900s, Canary Wharf re-emerged as a prime location for the back offices of business houses such as Credit Suisse First Boston, and ultimately going on to be recognised as a major financial hub in the city.
With more than 14 million square feet of retail and office space in the heart of the city, Canary Wharf has indeed emerged as a prime business location in London. Almost half of the available office space is owned by the Canary Wharf Group, whereas the remaining commercial space houses the head offices of leading professional consultancy firms, media companies, financial institutions, insurance companies, as well as major international banks. Citigroup, J P Morgan, Metlife, Credit Suisse, and HSBC are some of the leading businesses that have offices in Canary Wharf.
