About London City Island
London City Island comprises 1,706 new homes set on an island of 12 acres, with independent artisan restaurants, shops, creative hubs and alfresco spaces. The development takes its inspiration from the area’s maritime heritage, with bold primary colours and making use of its waterside surroundings with river walkways. Additionally, all Island residents will become members of the City Island Arts Club, the island’s own private residents’ club, which includes a striking red swimming pool of bright, seafaring red tiles – the trademark hue which appears throughout the island.
