Crossrail Canary Wharf will host a celebration of London’s most influential figures.

The London Evening Standard will launch Progress 1,000 at the E14 transport hub, with the sounds of RnB star Ella Eyre also set to mark the occasion on September 16.

The newspaper has teamed up with Canary Wharf Group, Citi and Crossrail to create what it calls a “definitive index” of “progress makers” in London and will hone in on human endeavor as its focus.

Those on the list range from rising stars and key players in the tech scene to party people and globe trotters.

It also features those at the helm of London’s major infrastructures, interiors and architects of the capital’s skyline.

Selected by a panel of Evening Standard reporters and critics, the full list will be revealed on the night.

Crossrail chairman Terry Morgan said: “We are delighted to host the Evening Standard Progress 1,000 event at Canary Wharf Crossrail station, one of 10 major new stations currently under construction in central London and Docklands.

“Crossrail is the most significant addition to London’s transport network in a generation.

“This major new railway will provide a direct link between London’s main employment areas, significantly enhance access to the West End, the City, Canary Wharf and Heathrow, and support regeneration across the route.”

Last year saw George Osborne take the top spot in a ceremony which had a special focus on the capital’s contribution to science, medicine and global humanitarianism.

Professor Stephen Hawking, Amal Clooney and Malala Yousafzai also featured in the 2014 top 20.

This year will also see the unveiling of a commemorative book and app.
