A new 60-ish floor resi tower for Canary Wharf, planned for a site that previously had a 37 floor hotel proposal.


Thanks to new forumer j4 james for the image. More should be available when the planning app is filed in a couple of weeks, should be around 180m.

Also, a recent application shows there is intention for another tower around 50 stories further down the road at 30 Marshwall.
