Personally, I'd be surprised if this goes ahead as an office development. This is the only old 'Millennium Quarter/South Quay/Isle of Dogs' development that's hasn't switched to being residential yet(Discovery Dock and 1 Millharbour were both office developments to begin with).

If you were a company, this would have to be pretty special to risk going here rather than the more 'secure' developments over in CW itself.

You can see Arrowhead Quay incorporated into this image I did way back when of what Goth and I thought Canary Wharf might look like in 2006....lol!

Close! Maybe 2012 if the economy and property markets don't tank between now and then.

I still think they should go back to the drawing board with this one.

lol...yes it certainly is! I remember doing it thinking 2006 seemed ages away and all that development seemed possible at the time. Doesn't seem that long ago either...**** I'm getting old.

The ArrowHead Quay development has now its own website. Ballymore is determined to push ahead with this one. They probably want to diversify their portfolio as they mainly develop residential projects in the area. Will, another tall probably u/c later this year.

see http://www.arrowheadquay.com/site/ahq_home.php

Jesus on a bicycle! Things are really picking up now!

Canary Wharf vs The City. I can see it right now!

They really market this tower as as landmark building, when it doesnt look much different to the stuff there already. ANyway, i got the images off the website for faster viewing:

^ Its okay, but agreed its nothing special.

Perhaps change the design a little, put at spire on it, variate the cladding, that would make it better.

The phrase landmark building is one of my pethates. It's a cliche much overused by lazy property marketeers, it seems at the moment that any old crap is referred to as such.

God almighty - quite honestly it's hard to imagine a more bland looking building. I just can't believe they actually, seriously create such unbelievably dull buildings for Canary Wharf. Surely they can put even a *tiny* amount of imagination into the designs? It looks like they deliberately make them as boring as possible!

I actually quite like it. Okay, its not the best building but I reckon its acceptable for Canary Wharf standards. It won't get away in the city though!

With the PP and marshwall towers it would certainly help spread out the cluster.

Oh well, at least it's reasonably tall I suppose, and will add some density to the area. In fact, the southern side of the cluster will see quite major expansion in the next couple of years with this, Pan Peninsula 1 & 2, Marsh Wall and Crossharbour, all being built on that side.

Talking about Marshwall does anyone know the status of the development?
