That's no coincidence! The exact same Toronto developer, Olympia & York, built both office districts. A large part of Toronto's central business district was built by Olympia & York. Toronto's CBD became the template for both the New York (World Financial Center) and London (Canary Wharf) office districts. Three WFC is even home to the US offices of Canada's biggest bank, RBC.

They're both Canadian inspired office districts. Canary Wharf is a little bit of Canada in London, while the World Financial Center is a little bit of Canada in New York.
