Abstract. The problems associated with the regeneration of London's Docklands have recently come under intense scrutiny following the collapse of Olympia and York, the developer of Canary Wharf. The authors of this paper attempt to place the development of Canary Wharf in a broader context, relating it to other 'similar' projects, the growth of the City of London during the 1980s, and changing demands of office occupiers, and then address the issue of whether its problems could have been anticipated in the light of earlier property development cycles.
