Beautifully designed with panoramic views of London’s skyline, the rolling river and sweeping green spaces, The Founding is the landmark 35-storey residential building launching Canada Water’s extraordinary transformation over the next decade.
The building features 186 light-filled apartments to buy with studios, one, two and three-bedroom flats designed by Conran & Partners alongside spacious lushly planted terraces, sustainable living and state-of-the-art facilities.
Uniting the area’s industrial and maritime heritage in its architecture, connecting with London via outstanding transport links and embracing the nature which surrounds it, The Founding gives you the opportunity to live and flourish in the heart of a remarkable neighbourhood – now and into its ground-breaking future.
The Founding’s apartments were designed to reflect how we live, the things we need to flourish, to rest and to be creative. The full-height Crittal windows flood the apartments with natural light while overlooking the city skyline, ever-changing river and the vast green spaces of south-east London.
Inspired by the neighbourhood, Conran & Partners embraced a calming colour palette, intuitive design and natural materials with open-plan spaces that encourage socialising with friends and sharing time with family while creating a sanctuary in the heart of an exciting city.
Cradled by the River Thames, The Founding gives a unique perspective on London – one that’s rarely experienced. To the west, you can see the iconic skyline of the city from a different angle and the green space of Southwark Park and, to the east, the shining waters of Greenland Dock and Stave Hill’s tree-filled nature reserve.
As Canada Water transforms, the view will evolve including a new 170-metre long boardwalk – referencing The Founding’s design in an industrial red – which will connect the station to the new town centre.
It’s these incredible vistas which have inspired the terraces of The Founding; these are spaces to be embraced and lived in. From watching the sun rise to enjoying a starlight evening as the city lights up to joining neighbours for morning yoga on the residents’ terrace, it’s about bringing nature into your home.
Living at The Founding means all of London – thriving work centres, world-class universities, independent food and drink, art, culture and music, airports and international trains – is utterly accessible.
With Canada Water station one minute away connecting you to Canary Wharf and the Elizabeth Line, London Bridge, Bank, the West End and beyond via the Jubilee Line and Overground, riverside cycle pathways and a bus hub, you are at the very heart of a global city.
“More people under the age of 35 living in Greater London can access Canada Water within 45 minutes on public transport than any other location in Central London”
The Founding comes with a 24-hour concierge, exclusive memberships and welcoming residents’ lounges which encourage connections, creativity and community. Whether working from home and in need of a breakout place or socialising with neighbours, these spaces are practical, beautifully designed and ideal for all occasions.
From morning coffee to alfresco dining in the summer, the ground floor of The Founding will feature small shops, delis, bars and restaurants which will become go-tos for residents and a destination for visitors.
Complementing this bustling atmosphere will be a brand-new leisure centre next door to The Founding. With an eight-lane 25-metre swimming pool, high-tech gym, racket courts, sauna and steam rooms, lounges and fitness programme, boost your happiness levels and physical wellbeing, unwind and feel incredible.
The Founding is also surrounded by 130 acres of parks and woodlands and the sparkling waters of Canada Water Dock and Greenland Dock with a planned 12 acres of new open spaces, a 3.5 acre park, revitalised wetlands and cycle paths to come. The neighbourhood connects you to the city but also gives you a calming, rejuvenating haven formed in nature. Welcome to the building…
