LONDON | Pan Peninsula Tower | 147m | 50 fl | 119m | 38 fl | Com

Pan Peninsula Tower
Canary Wharf, London

Height: 147m
Floors: 50
Architect: Skidmore Owings & Merrill
Developer: Ballymore Properties Ltd



This project actually consists of 2 towers, side-by-side. The taller one is 147m/50 storeys and the shorter one is 119m/38 storeys. Both contain luxury highrise apartments, and there will be a cocktail bar on the 50th floor of the taller tower.

Groundwork has been underway on this site for a while now, and the core is expected to begin rising soon.

They will stand just to the south of the main Canary Wharf cluster. Also being constructed nearby is the Crossharbour Tower.

That's right. The spires were ditched for the flat topped, art-deco theme.

I think he's right ya know....it is London in a nutshell, well...most of the time.


I've heard 'I wish it was bigger' (especially from CAW123 ) or 'should of been twice the height' so many times on this site.
