Canada Water


8 acres








Maccreanor Lavington and David Chipperfield Architects

Project overview

Sellar has been appointed to co-develop the 4.5-acre Canada Water Dock following the site’s sale to German property investor and developer Art-Invest Real Estate for £140m.

The site, Canada Water Dock, is located in the London Borough of Southwark, and is surrounded by British Land’s seven million sq ft regeneration project. The site has an indicative masterplan to create three new commercially-led buildings totalling c.1.2 million sq ft. There is also existing consent for 1,000 residential units, including the 234 units and new Decathlon store that Sellar completed in the summer of 2018.

The masterplan is the joint vision of British design firm Maccreanor Lavington and international practice David Chipperfield Architects. Together, they’ve designed beautifully cohesive spaces and buildings that will turn Canada Water into one of the capital’s most exciting and vibrant destinations.

The development is ideally situated in a Zone 2 location, with existing transport links.  With the City, Canary Wharf, London City Airport and the forthcoming Elizabeth Line all less than 20 minutes away, the area presents huge potential to deliver a new gold standard in urban living.


“London’s young innovators and creatives commute through Canada Water every day and its regeneration will create one of London’s most significant new urban centres where people will want to work, live and spend their free time. We look forward to working with the Art-Invest team to deliver a landmark scheme at the heart of London’s next major regeneration hub."
