The Madison – E14’s leading residential address with over 70% public space

HONG KONG AND MACAU, 7 October 2015 -- Innovative central London developer LBS Properties is transforming a site with huge development potential near West India Dock with The Madison - a striking new residential scheme comprising a 53 storey landmark tower that is set to become E14’s leading residential address. 

Designed by award-winning Make Architects, The Madison will comprise 423 high specification new homes, plus an expansive collection of residents’ amenities, public gardens, new office space and an exciting new retail and leisure offering. All of the homes at The Madison will meet Lifetime Homes’ standards and Code for Sustainable Homes level 4. 

The slender form of the glass tower enables 70% of the overall site to be dedicated to new public realm, including over half an acre of thriving biodiverse public gardens with extensive planting and seating areas. There will also be an expansive 186m2 play area for children. This provision of open space will transform the local area providing residents and locals with excellent lifestyle amenities, not enjoyed before in West India Dock.

A beautifully appointed residents’ lounge, gym, screening room and top of the range business facilities will be available to residents exclusively on the 16th floor of the development. All of these first-class facilities will front on to three external terraces with 360 degree outstanding views of Canary Wharf, the City of London, the river Thames and beyond. There will also be a five-star-style spa area with 12m pool, sauna and steam room.

The luxurious interior design at The Madison, by Make Architects, can be found in all areas of the building – from the impressive double-height entrance to the detailing of the kitchens in the apartments themselves. The thoughtful layout of each home maximises floor space to create generous, light-filled rooms with expansive views over London, with many apartments also benefiting from inset balconies, winter gardens and external terraces. This maximised floor space will also result in significantly increasing capital values for purchasers upon completion.  The palate of materials has been specially selected to provide a canvas for every occupant to apply their own personality.  Whatever the space, the carefully considered detailing and bespoke finishes reflect the striking external architecture throughout the interior. 

A limited number of car parking spaces, accessed by car lift, will be available, while all residents will have access to secure cycle storage. Electric vehicle charging points will also be included. 

Nick Crawford, director at LBS Properties, said: “The Madison is set to become E14’s premiere address. The development will combine innovative and ambitious design with high specification interiors to deliver a landmark building minutes from Canary Wharf. The delivery of a substantial new public garden which is central to the development will allow us to provide the rare combination of central London high-rise living set within landscaped gardens.”

Tim Wright, lead director at JLL, comments: “Make architects have significantly raised the standard with the internal and external design at The Madison, creating an enviable lifestyle-led environment with a focus on exceptional service that will truly change the way we live and interact as communities. The apartments will offer both choice and space through innovative bespoke features and efficient space planning enabling purchasers to buy in a development with high specification living at affordable prices.”

Positioned just a few minutes’ walk from Canary Wharf, The Madison enjoys a convenient and enviable location with excellent transport connections, including South Quay DLR station a short walk away. These connections are set to improve further with the new Crossrail Station at Canary Wharf delivered in 2018 which will provide a direct link to the City, West End and Heathrow Airport. The surrounding area is also undergoing widespread transformation with the provision of new shops, bars, cafes and restaurants, helping to transform this locale into one of London’s most sought after residential districts.

JLL forecasts price growth of 43.7% in Canary Wharf from 2015 – 2020, with values being driven by the arrival of Crossrail in 2018, enabling one of the biggest changes to any sub-market in London.

Prices for a studio apartment start at £460,000. Please visit to find out more.
