Sitting alongside the marketing suite half-way up the main Canary Wharf can be found the estate’s marketing suite, and in a side room, to show off the development, a gigantic scale model of the estate.

Split roughly into three sections, one wall is a huge slice through the original shopping centre and DLR station.

The other two are scale models of the estate, one of the skyscrapers, and the other of the subterranean world beneath them packed full of shoppers. Remember if passing by on the DLR at weekends, it may look quiet, but below ground is an ants nest of activity.

Just a few photos as there’s not much more to add.














Access was part of the Open House Weekend — the marketing suite is not generally open the public.

This website has been running now for just over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, but doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether its a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what your read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you

    I wasn’t aware of that vast amount of underground car parking space.

    Interesting – went to visit the same in the 2013 Open House … and we were told that photos of the models were strictly prohibited! We were only allowed to take photos of the views – with plenty of security guards ensuring it remained that way!

    I am working in the office building adjacent to DLR Platform 6. Do you think I can go and have a look at the models?

    I did and I’ve just been 🙂 And it’s awesome!
