LONDON | Newfoundland | 220m | 58 fl | U/C



----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


New 212m residential tower for the Canary Wharf area. Planning application was filed a couple of weeks ago. The tower was designed by Horden Cherry Lee architects.

Wow, stunning building!

Fits perfectly with the other buildings in London.

The Design is much better than the other ones in CW. It would of been nice if this had been located in the city of London instead of CW. But still nice building if it goes ahead.

Wow really nice surprise for this area, I must say! Cool design.
If Riverside South ever gets build above ground I do wonder how the views of this residential tower will be?

Deserves to be in the City. Beautiful design.

CW is booming! I like the design, it would fit in both City and Canary Wharf.

This design is so amazing. CW's skyline is going to become very decent along with the other 2 residential towers in the area!

This is a world class design - yet another for London.

excellent. Unlike the City, Canary wharf needs a bit of a statement. This brings that focus and disctinctiveness, while keeping in character with the slim, vertical lines of the cluster. Great composition

I like that it is simple, and classy and unlike many buildings in London, it'll stand out for the right reasons, not necessarily because 'starchitect' has tried to make their mark on the skyline of London.

Reminds me of Calgary's Bow.

Wow, this is fantastic. And due to it being in CW surely English Heritage won't throw a hissy fit and planning should be fairly easy to obtain?

not bad at all. Looks like something that would be in the city rather than the wharf

I love diamond facades, but I'm not sure if putting balconies in between the beams is such a good idea.

YES! It certainly reminds me of the Bow in Calgary!

Beautiful design
