Three steel towers set to rise at Canary Wharf
Designs for an iconic 28-storey sloping office tower on one of the last remaining sites on the Canary Wharf estate have been given the go-ahead, while work has also started on a 58-storey residential tower.
The London borough of Tower Hamlets’ planning committee has granted consent for the sloping 146m high building, which will be located at One Bank Street at Heron Quays West on the Isle of Dogs.
The distinctive steel diagrid building has been designed by KPF and will be constructed by Canary Wharf’s own construction arm Canary Wharf Contractors.
The detailed plan contains an atrium giving the office design a wider skirt on the lower floors and roof terrace.
Cofferdam works have been ongoing at One Bank Street for some time and works started on site this January. The building is due for completion in January 2019.
French bank Société Générale has taken a pre-let for 26,000m² of the building’s floor space commencing in the summer of 2019.
Meanwhile, utility diversion and preliminary site works are currently under way for residential block, while construction of 10 Bank Street, a 21-storey office block, is anticipated to start in January 2017.
