Canary Wharf Group
London, United Kingdom

63,500sf
David Pontarini, Partner-in-Charge
Hariri Pontarini Architects was invited to submit proposals for a 60-storey residential tower, a landmark at the threshold between Canary Wharf and Wood Wharf. Its high-end design, grand scale and prominent location at the beginning of a new High Street speak to its importance as a gateway to the rest of the Wood Wharf master plan. As the first residential courtyard of the development, the entrance at Ground Level features a large wooden soffit to emphasize the entrance and create a sense of grandeur upon arrival.

With access to the waterfront on both the western and southern elevations as well as high visibility across the water, the building sets the tone for the high-end development of Wood Wharf. Ranging from studios to penthouse units, the use of a flexible Typical Floor Plan optimises the value of each individual unit while remaining time and cost efficient during construction. The tower’s individual balconies enhance the area of each unit while providing a sculpted texture to the façades. At the lower levels, the balconies remain open with glass dividers between units. As the balconies move up the building, they are partially enclosed behind glass screens, providing each unit with a semi-enclosed solarium. They also maximise views of the Thames and the city indicating the luxurious nature of this residential offering.

Expression of intent to submit £50bn Thames Hub Airport proposal lodged with Airports Commission

Foster + Partners has confirmed to the Airports Commission, the organisation investigating airport capacity in the UK led by Sir Howard Davies, that it intends to submit a proposal to the Commission in July for a new hub airport in the Thames Estuary. The airport is part of the proposed Thames Hub, a unique opportunity for an integrated infrastructure solution to rebalance the economy, stimulate growth and enable the UK to maintain its global hub status.

A new four-runway airport with capacity for 150 million passengers – and with future expansion capacity to six runways – built on a platform on the Isle of Grain in the Thames Estuary, will enable the economy to benefit from our maintained global hub status. It will largely eliminate the environmental, noise and security problems of aircraft over-flying London into Heathrow. The airport would be connected to London via a spur linking directly to the existing high-speed rail line, creating a fast route from the airport to the Midlands and North via HS2, as well as continental Europe.

The self-funded Thames Hub vision was first made public in 2011. Having received widespread support, the proposals have been further developed with the assistance of a group of infrastructure, engineering, construction, legal, planning, economists and cost consultants. The ongoing study has addressed airport design and airspace issues; a geotechnical assessment; costs and potential funding models; construction, planning and delivery; surface access; ports and shipping; hydropower generation; and analysis of economic, environmental, social and safety impacts. Meetings have been held with over 100 different stakeholders, including national and local government, the aviation sector, transport operators, business organisations, environmental organisations and local community groups, as well as global investment groups.

Lord Foster:

“We welcome the Airports Commission – it is an important task and demonstrates the government’s commitment to tackling the aviation issue. Decisive action must be taken in planning for future capacity if Britain is to remain competitive. We believe that a new four-runway Thames Estuary airport can best provide the connectivity and future flexibility that Britain desperately needs, while improving the lives of the millions of Londoners blighted by Heathrow’s flight path.”

Planning granted for landmark mixed-use scheme on London's Albert Embankmen (Part of £15 billion "Nine Elms" Europe's largest regeneration project)



Lambeth Council has approved plans for St James Group’s new mixed-use scheme at 20-21 Albert Embankment in London. Consent was granted for three landmark buildings designed by Foster + Partners, ranging from 15 to 27 storeys in height and providing 253 apartments, including affordable homes for senior living, along with offices, restaurants and a residents’ bar, gym, pool and spa.

The scheme is the latest development to achieve planning in Nine Elms – a 195-hectare site between Lambeth Bridge and Chelsea Bridge on the South Bank, which represents the largest regeneration initiative in Europe. The £15 billion Nine Elms project will include 16,000 new homes and 6.4million sq ft commercial space with planning consent.

Cllr Lib Peck, Leader of Lambeth Council:

“This new development on Albert Embankment is another important stage of the transformation of Vauxhall. Developments like 20-21 Albert Embankment are essential to bringing new jobs, new affordable homes and inward investment into Lambeth which will secure our long-term economic growth.”

Sean Ellis, Chairman of St James:

“St James is in the fortunate position of owning a number of developments that will have a lasting impact on London and in this case its riverscape. This is a responsibility we take very seriously and are therefore committed to working with the world’s best architects and designers to produce developments which help enhance our world class city. Over 90% of the homes will have their own balcony, many with stunning views of the river and the Houses of Parliament. In addition, St James has carefully considered the landscape architecture as part of the wider strategy, delivering public realm spaces on all three sites that will be of exceptional quality.”

Grant Brooker, Senior Partner at Foster + Partners:

“We are absolutely delighted that 20-21 Albert Embankment has received planning permission – working alongside our clients at St James and with great support from Lambeth and the GLA, we hope to transform this important and highly visible site into a vibrant riverside community that sets a benchmark for the regeneration of this part of the river.”
