In October 2020 Canary Wharf Group’s residential leasing arm, Vertus announced the launch of its first pet-friendly building, 8 Water Street as part of its new build-to-rent (BtR) scheme in Canary Wharf London.
The rise of pet friendly - 8 Water Street
8 Water Street is a collection of 174 units ranging from studio to three-bedroom apartments. The building itself, designed by award-winning architecture firm Stanton-Williams has a low-rise character which intimately connects residents to the water and green spaces below.
Complementing the exterior aesthetic, the interiors have been designed to the highest standard by Goddard Littlefair who have created luxurious, yet functional spaces for residents. Each apartment showcases the best in open-plan living and accentuates the natural light throughout, with floor to ceiling windows and either a terrace or balcony, the perfect place for watching the world go by with a coffee. Apartments also feature wooden floors, heated floors in the bathroom and high-specification appliances throughout. Furnished by Acouter, residents have the option of painting the walls of their apartment, making the place really feel like home.
Pet friendly living
As well as being pet-friendly, residents can expect benefits such as tenancy terms that suit their needs, with flexible deposit options and an exceptional range of amenities, including family friendly and pet friendly spaces, as well as exclusive events.

Alastair Mullens, Head of Vertus
“As the first pet-friendly BtR building in Canary Wharf, we expect to see a strong demand for these apartments as there are very few properties of this quality available on the rental market, which also have the option of keeping pets.
“8 Water Street is much more than just a pet-friendly BtR building. Much like 10 George Street, 8 Water Street will provide a fantastic experience, exceptional amenities, five-star apartments and a high-quality lifestyle for those who chose to rent with Vertus.”
