Convoy's Wharf in Deptford in Lewisham is to be built on land owned by News International between the Pepys Estate to the north and Paynes Wharf to the South.

It consists of three residential towers designed by the Richard Rogers Partnership sitting in corners of a triangle around a new improved marina. The trio of towers will be 40, 32 and 26 floors reaching up to 148m AOD in height topped by spires in Rogers now classic structural expressionist design.
As well as the towers, the 16 hectacre site that occupies 50% of the Borough of Lewisham's waterfront will contain many lower rise residences, typically of between 6 and 8 floors, creating a total of 3,512 new homes as a central part of the plans of Ken Livingstone to house tens of thousands of people on previously abandoned brownfield land.

There will also be the construction of over 72,000 square metres of office space, plus dozens of new retail outlets and two radically improved and regenerated streets, one which will provide access from the south in Deptford High Street, straight to the Thames at the north and a second that will run from east to west joining the centre of the project with Grove Street.
So the tallest will actually be 148m excluding spire.

Those are some real ugly towers. They would look so much better without the spires... oh well.... At least they have an impact on the Greenwich skyline.

The nighttime shot isn't the best... here's a better render. 148m is the height above mean sea level btw... actual height is probably around 120m max. The development has just received approval from Lewisham Council.
