Plans revealed for major London Docklands development

July 22, 2020 by NSC in Weekly News
Canary Wharf Group has revealed plans for a 350,000m² development on the North Quay site at London Docklands’ Canary Wharf. The proposals, master-planned by leading architects Allies and Morrison, have been submitted to the local planning authority, the London Borough of Tower Hamlets.

The site, which is immediately adjacent to Crossrail’s new Elizabeth Line station on the north side of Canary Wharf, will create a vibrant mixed-use district and accommodate up to 232,000m² of commercial office space and up to 100,000m² of residential space, within a flexible framework to suit the demands of future London.

North Quay is the largest undeveloped site remaining at Canary Wharf and one of the largest development sites in London. New public realm in the form of streets and squares will be at the heart of the scheme creating connections between Canary Wharf and South Poplar and integrating with the key transport hubs of the Elizabeth Line and DLR.

Sir George Iacobescu CBE, Executive Chairman of Canary Wharf Group, said: “North Quay is a unique location and one of the largest single development sites in London. Our plans offer a great new place to work and to live, with extensive public realm, high-quality retail, and new connections, next to a brand-new railway station.

“This will be a fantastic addition to the Canary Wharf estate and offer an exceptional environment for a range of occupiers and sectors including health and life sciences, technology, media, financial or business services organisations.

“In a dynamic and unpredictable world, the extensive flexibility in this plan will enable us to respond quickly to market demand within a framework agreed with the local authority.”
