Investors are most familiar with Canary Wharf - one of London's main financial centers which is the global or regional headquarters of some of the world's largest and most prestigious banks.
Now it is time to cast eyes on another great residential property investment opportunity, The Forge - which will be showcased during Colliers International's exhibition this weekend at the Mandarin Oriental Hong Kong.
The project offers a choice of luxurious living space - from studio to one, two and three bedroom apartments, with superb views of the Docklands iconic skyline.
The units range from 322 to 1,027 square feet, with prices starting at 230,000 (HK$2.89 million).
Selected apartments in this discreet low-rise development have private terraces or balconies, while common areas include landscaped gardens and courtyard.
Residents enjoy luxurious finishings, with high ceilings and ample windows to let in plenty of natural light.
Kitchens are equipped with natural granite countertops, high-end Bosch appliances, dark wood and white veneer cabinets with soft close drawers and doors. Bathrooms feature ceramic tiled walls and floors, with energy efficient lighting.
The Forge is located in a prime buy- to-let executive rental catchment area, with projected rental return of 5.6 percent.
Nearby is Mudchute Park, which offers 13 hectares of countryside in the middle of Docklands.
Within easy walking distance is the Docklands Light Railway, offering fast connectivity to London's financial hub and beyond. London City Airport is only about 28 minutes on the DLR from The Forge.
The Jubilee Line connects at Canary Wharf, providing direct links across the south bank of the River Thames to Westminster and into the heart of the West End, with London Bridge seven minutes away.
Two minutes walk from The Forge is the Masthouse Terrace Pier, where Thames Clippers operates a fast and comfortable river shuttle service up and down the Thames, carrying 7,000 passengers per day.
With completion expected in late 2012, the 60 units at The Forge are now offered for sale with an eight year NHBC warranty.
