Love in Wood Wharf

Love in Wood Wharf


2020 is in full swing and love is in the air across the capital as couples get together to celebrate Valentine’s Day. For one couple, February 14th will be particularly special this year as they celebrate their recent engagement. Chandan Singh and new fiancé Fruzsina got engaged just before Christmas, only months after buying their first home together at 10 Park Drive in Wood Wharf, Canary Wharf’s new district.

The couple will be among the first people to live on the Canary Wharf estate, an area which will become a home to a diverse community, combining brilliantly curated public art, beautiful public spaces with some of the very best of shopping, restaurants and events London has to offer.

Chandan, who works as a cybersecurity expert in central London comments; “We met through mutual friends and we’d been talking for a while about buying a place together in London before I proposed. I went out and purchased a ring that I knew would reflect her personality and our relationship. After buying the ring the excitement and anticipation really began to build. It is such a nerve-wracking experience, and even everyone says it is, you don’t quite know how much until you do it! Luckily, I had plenty of encouragement from our friends and family. I booked us a table at our favourite restaurant and got down on one knee and she said yes! It was a magical evening and I still cannot quite believe it.”

Fruzsina who is a head of HR and recruitment says; “It was certainly a surprise; I’m impressed he managed to keep it a secret as we are always so open with each other. It’s such an exciting time for us, it has been a real whirlwind few months. It’s not every day you get engaged and buy a home together. Every time I look down at my hand the butterflies come straight back.”

Shortly after getting engaged, the couple attended a Canary Wharf Group residents’ party to help future residents get to know each other before moving in.

Chandan comments; “It was a fantastic evening and a really nice way to break the ice with the other residents. One of the reasons we were so keen on 10 Park Drive was the idea of living in a community and getting to know our neighbours. We were impressed by just how professional Canary Wharf Group were, and they had kindly informed the other guests of our engagement, so we were overwhelmed with the amount of people wishing us luck.”

Fruzsina adds; “It was a lovely surprise to see everyone be so sweet about our engagement, everyone certainly had a lot of helpful advice on wedding planning! We’re excited to begin married life together surrounded by such a lovely community.”

The couple were particularly impressed by the variety of amenities soon to be on their doorstep. Chandan adds; “We don’t work on the Canary Wharf estate, so it was important to have good transport links, and Canary Wharf certainly does. Thinking to the near future, living somewhere that is as well run as Canary Wharf puts our minds at rest. I was really impressed with the amount of green space we’d have right on our doorstep as well, it’ll be perfect for strolling around in the evening and there’s plenty of places to grab a bite to eat.” 

Fruzsina comments, “We were particularly excited by the idea of living by the water. We are reasonably high up on the 16th floor and we can see out across the river, and it feels very intimate and private as the balconies are slightly set back. We just love the idea of relaxed evenings dining out on our balcony watching the world go by.”   

Fruzsina and Chandan are among the first residents to move into 10 Park Drive, as the development is set to complete in the Spring. Designed by Stanton Williams and with interiors by award-winning Make Architects, the development will house 345 apartments set across two towers. Situated within Canary Wharf’s new neighbourhood, Wood Wharf; residents will benefit from over 300 shops, bars and restaurants, nine acres of public spaces, plazas and parks, a doctor’s surgery and a new two-form primary school.

Purchasers will have exclusive access to the “oasis in the city”; a terraced sky garden situated on the 13th floor and residents’ only fitness facilities at a brand new Third Space gym.
