Canary Wharf Station was opened by Ken Livingstone on 17 September 1999 as part of the Jubilee Line Extension. The tube station was intended from the start to be the showpiece of the Jubilee Line Extension, and its design was awarded in 1990 to the renowned architect Sir Norman Foster.
The entire roof of the station is laid out as a landscaped park; the only visible station elements are the glass canopies that cover its three entrances and draw daylight deep into the station concourse. At 300 metres in length it is as long as Canary Wharf Tower is tall. The robust aesthetic is achieved by a simple palette of hard-wearing materials that create the dramatic atmosphere.
