City Island BridgeAn 80 metre, 160 tonne red bridge providing an important link between Canning Town and Canary Wharf, The City Island Bridge, has been designed by Davies, Maguire and Whitby to accommodate the residents of City Island, a twelve acre 'island' neighbourhood close to Canary Wharf. Billed as a 'mini Manhattan', the development houses 1,700 new apartments, al fresco spaces, waterside parks, bars and restaurants, artist studios, boutique shops, a school and private residents' club. The bright red bridge, lifted into place by the UK's biggest crane is set on the Lea River's striking meander, known as Bow Creek and made famous by the beginning aerial shots of 'EastEnders'.
