Canada Water

Waterfront view of canada water library

The exciting Canada Water regeneration programme is delivering a vibrant new town centre for Rotherhithe.

We are providing a mix of high quality homes, community facilities, employment, shops and new public realm.

This is a unique opportunity to transform a historic London docklands location into a distinctive, new waterside town centre. So far we have delivered:

  • 900 homes of which 236 are affordable
  • a state of the art Library with  over 40,000 books, learning spaces, meeting rooms and a theatre
  • new  plaza designed to accommodate a street market and other events

We have been working closely with local community to understand their aspiration for Canada Water.

Our shared vision is to ultimately deliver at least 4,500 new homes, 35,000sqm of additional retail spaces and generate around 2000 new jobs.

Further details of our shared vision and how it will be delivered is set out in the Canada Water Area Action Plan (CWAAP).
