Yeah, it looks absolutely fantastic. And yes it is one tower but I think there is another much shorter one being built at the same time close by. Anyway, check out the PDF on this website for all the info... berkeley-southquay.co.uk/

If it didn't have already Canary Wharf is certainly going to become one of the most distinctive skylines in Europe.

What is most exciting is that it could have almost a dozen skyscrapers being constructed at the same time!! :wow:

This one (from gegloma01) includes South Quay Plaza and City Pride, no Diamond Tower, Riverside South or Columbus Tower I'm afraid:

Wow, that is incredible. And to think, that isn't even the total extent of all the towers... CW is honestly going to look incredible. And with Canary Wharf, the City, Vauxhall, Elephant and Castle, London Bridge... London as a whole is going to look bloody glorious!

Foster + Partners to build tall on South Quay Plaza.

7 August, 2013 | By Matthew Bell


Foster + Partners has been chosen to build a super-tall tower as part of the redevelopment of South Quay Plaza on London’s Isle of Dogs

Developers Berkeley snapped up the site in Canary Wharf in April 2013 and has submitted initial options for a residential tower nearly 80 storeys high, just shorter than One Canada Square.

Plans to redevelop the surrounding area will create 1.8 acres of public realm, opening up 57 per cent of the site - an increase from the 9 per cent of public space currently.

Responding to the appointment, Grant Brooker, senior partner for Foster + Partners, said: ‘South Quay Plaza has a key role to play in revitalising this pivotal dockside location and we are absolutely delighted to have been chosen by Berkeley to work with them on this very significant project.’

South Quay Plaza occupies a prominent position on Marsh Wall and a central location on the Isle of Dogs. It comprises a small complex of shops, two office buildings and a leisure building in the North East corner, which together cover a large part of the site very little space for public use.

Planning policy identifies the need for at least 10,000 new homes across the Isle of Dogs and 6,150 within Millwall over the next 22 years.

During consultation, locals demanded better pedestrian access the site and improved links by foot between the South Quay Docklands Light Railway station, Millharbour and Canary Wharf. They also wanted an improved waterfront area and more shops throughout.

‪South Quay Plaza is set for residential development under the Millennium Quarter Masterplan, and over the next 20 years is set to include at least 10,000 new homes on the Isle of Dogs and 6,150 in Millwall.

The site is within Isle of Dogs Opportunity Area, the Canary Wharf Activity Area and the Millwall area of the Core Strategy.

Another great tower that complements Canary Wharf perfectly! We need to build this, and to keep up the momentum of construction!

Canary Wharf to see Europe’s tallest residential tower

By Kate Allen

The proposed £1bn, 74-storey Hertsmere Tower (artist's impression left)


Tom Ryan, an Irish property investor, intends to build a £1bn, 74-storey skyscraper on the site he acquired for £100m on Thursday in the business district to the east of the City of London. The tower will be 7 metres higher than Canary Wharf’s tallest office building. The acquisition is the first in what sources say will be a series of UK property investments by Mr Ryan.


The scheme is the latest in a string of high-rise housing developments under construction across the capital, including the Heron in the City of London and One The Tower at St George’s Wharf in Vauxhall.

The building fever has prompted Savills, one of the UK’s leading estate agents, to warn that London faces an oversupply of high-value homes as developers rush to soak up the waves of foreign investment flowing into the capital’s housing market. Four-fifth of purchasers of London’s prime property are foreign and two-thirds of buyers are investors rather than owner-occupiers.

Mr Ryan still has some hurdles to overcome before he can start building. Though the site has planning permission for a 242-metre mixed-use scheme containing offices, a hotel and shops, he will have to ask Tower Hamlets Council to allow a housing development instead. Stuart Robinson, of property advisers CBRE, said it would be difficult for the council to turn down.

The Hertsmere Tower will be priced as prime real estate – upwards of £1,000 per square foot – in an attempt to attract London’s highest earners to abandon their traditional western haunts of Mayfair and Knightsbridge in favour of the eastern Docklands.

There will be space for 714 apartments covering more than half a million square feet, said Richard Berridge, chief operating officer of Ryan Corporation UK.

Mr Berridge shrugged off concerns of an overheated London housing market. “Some people might be overawed by the scale but we see an opportunity,” he said. “Canary Wharf is one of the few places in the UK where you can build a tall building. It’s time for a very good residential building of a very high standard; that is something that has been lacking there until now.”

Dominic Grace, a director at Savills, said the deal heralded “the arrival” of Canary Wharf as a prime residential destination. “The pendulum has swung in favour of east London, Canary Wharf is becoming the truly 21st century part of London because it’s unencumbered by the small period properties prevalent in the rest of the capital; developers can create larger, more international-style buildings.”

Hertsmere Tower will overtake Europe’s current tallest residential building, the Sky Tower in Wroclaw, Poland, which is 212 metres tall. But it will not outstrip Europe’s overall tallest building, The Shard at London Bridge, which is 308 metres and is primarily office, restaurant and hotel space.

Hertsmere is the first British scheme for Mr Ryan, who has invested in several other countries, Mr Berridge said. Ryan Corporation would not provide details of Mr Ryan’s past developments.
