Shimmering Highs: Vetro, East London’s Latest Jewel in the Sky

Vetro, London’s newest collection of limited-edition apartments, has completed, marking Westferry as a new residential destination in east London.


Home to beautifully-crafted apartments with uninterrupted views of the Thames and the city, Vetro is just two minutes from the shops, restaurants and bustling heart of Canary Wharf and seven minutes from the city of London. A limited number of the eight one-bedroom and 33 two-bedroom apartments, all of which benefit from open-plan designs and bespoke interiors, remain available, with prices starting from £520,000.

Developed by leading London property developer, Rockwell, all tenants at Vetro gain access to an exceptional portfolio of amenities with healthy living at its core. Vetro is equipped with a state-of-the-art, in-house gym, sauna, relaxation area and concierge service. In addition, the impressive and immaculately-landscaped podium garden stretching out across the city offers vital outdoor space with glorious views for all residents to enjoy.

Vetro has been designed to deliver on all aspects of urban living by world-renowned architect firm, SimpsonHaugh, the practice behind other iconic developments like One Blackfriars on London’s South Bank and Deansgate Square, set on Manchester’s River Medlock. The building’s materiality transitions from traditional brick to a slender vertical component of shimmering glass. With stunning clean lines, rich materials and well-considered lighting, each apartment is a true example of expert craftsmanship.

The interior designs and structures of the apartments at Vetro have been thoughtfully designed to offer functional yet luxurious rooms to rest and play, with post-pandemic flexible working trends in mind. Apartments at Vetro feature a flexible multi-function ’winter garden’, which can be used as a study, gym or reading area where tenants can enjoy views of the iconic London cityscape whilst they work, exercise or relax, while expansive windows in each and every room offer continuous natural light throughout the day.

Now complete, Vetro will lead the area’s rebalancing from financial towards residential and lifestyle spaces. This trend looks set to continue, with the recent launch of the Elizabeth Line station at Canary Wharf bringing many more visitors from across the capital to what is becoming one of its leading cultural and recreational hubs.

Commenting on the completion of Vetro, Managing Director of Rockwell, Nicholas Mee, said: “Vetro is a world-class development, providing much-needed modern, stylish homes in London, designed to be enjoyed and situated in a great location to reach Canary Wharf and the city. It’s fantastic to see one of our landmark schemes complete, especially considering how the team overcame challenges with construction during the pandemic. We are very pleased to be welcoming residents to their new homes.”

The penthouse collection at Vetro, comprising six duplex homes, is set to launch in Q1 2023, and will offer some of the rarest and most spectacular views of the London skyline and River Thames.
