LCI is an award winning riverside development on the Leamouth Peninsula nicknamed the “Mini Manhattan” to represents the essence of its luxury living and modern feel. 12 acres of cosmopolitan development have been invested into London City Island, providing the likes of homes, offices, restaurants, boutique shops, pedestrian and cycle routes, cultural spaces and even waterside parks.
Another huge pull of the London City Island development is the excellent transport connections available, to help alleviate the strain of inner city commuting and travel. Residents will ultimately be given easy access to the major areas throughout the capital, including the likes of Canary Wharf, The West End, the City and beyond. Those living within London City Island will be merely a 2-minute walk away from the new connecting bridge to Canning Town station, which is on both the Jubilee Line and DLR.
The “Mini Manhattan” shall be a cultural cosmopolitan hub, with the English National Ballet moving into new headquarters at the development. Many of London’s well-known landmarks will be visible from the apartments as well, situated on the river gazing over the likes of Canary Wharf, the O2 Arena and St Paul’s Cathedral.
Greenwich Naval College is just 30 minutes away by public transport and a majestic sight to behold.
Architecture and design LCI has been purpose-built to tell a story, with the colour holding a nod to the area’s maritime history. The glazed-brick building is coated in colours of orange, red, blue, white and black. The red strands have been used as a means of navigating the route between living spaces, public spaces, amenities, shops and restaurants.
Another design inspiration is in reference to the district’s endearing nickname. The world’s most famous island community, Manhattan, is well known for its tall and striking factory buildings. This architecture has been mirrored in the design itself, with apartments sitting behind a grid-pattern façade, which allow for wide windows and recessed terraces to provide partial weather shelter for residents.
Amenities on site Various amenities are available including 24 hour security patrol to ensure the safety of residents, an Italian cafe/restaurant&bar/grocery shop, residents lounge with free wiFI to relax if need be,English National Ballet served by The Espresso Bar, the London Film School and an art gallery.
The Italian cafe/restaurant & bar/grocery - The Island Grocer is open for breakfast from 6am, lunch from 11 am and closes at 11pm on weekdays.
History A lawless village in its past, LCI has grown from its haunting past into a modern and chic place to live in.

*****IMPORTANT******* LCI also serves swimming pool, gym, sauna, steam room, loungers and onsite personal trainers, HOWEVER, this is NOT accessible for short term guests staying less than 3 months but only those with >3 months tenancy/rental agreement. The security fobs for the Islandic One will not work for the gym and spa area. This area is manned by security staff to prevent unregistered guests from using the facility including the use of facial recognition cameras. It is IMPORTANT to observe this rule as breaching this rule will invalidate your licence agreement and no refund will be provided. The same goes to the concierge service.
If you would like to use these facilities, please consider staying for at least 3 months and we would be happy to arrange access and provide the documents for the necessary fees involved to use these facilities.
To appreciate the Islandic One and LCI with its amazing facilities, please search on the internet for "London City Island" for full virtual tours of the development of what I have described above.
