The masterplan was approved, and two of the towers from the masterplan were recently submitted for planning. That's all we know.

"The master plan proposal is for a mixed use development. It would have 4,900,000 square feet of office space and around 1,500 homes, many of them much-needed affordable family units. The office space would effectively be a seamless expansion of the Canary Wharf business district, albeit not officially part of the Canary Wharf estate. The development consists of four skyscrapers of 2100-2200 ft, 2013 ft, 1959 ft, 1657 ft and a number of midrises."

Is that right?

Somebody must have made a serious blunder in converting measuring units or something like that. Not that I'd mind a cluster of 600m tall towers rising in Europe.

The Wood Wharf site offers a fantastic opportunity to host a number of
community and corporate events, which can complement the existing
Canary Wharf Arts & Events programme, but in 2012 and in particular
during the Olympic and Paralympic games will also become a destination
for sporting and cultural events, highlighting the London Borough of
Tower Hamlets (LBTH) role in the Olympics and the diversity of talent
within the Borough.
The application seeks the flexible use of the site within the proposed uses
in order to meet the requirements for a range of events.

Canary Wharf buys out Wood Wharf partners

http://uk.reuters.com/article/2012/0...8CI0P620120118

LONDON, Jan 18 (Reuters) - Canary Wharf Group has bought the full ownership of Wood Wharf Limited Partnership for 90.4 million pounds ($80.4 million), as it looks to take great control of the its east London financial hub expansion.

The company, which is majority owned by Songbird Estates said on Wednesday it paid 52.4 million pounds for British Waterways' 50 percent interest in Wood Wharf, and 38 million pounds for Ballymore's 25 percent stake.

Wood Wharf is behind a mixed use development scheme of the same name adjacent to the Canary Wharf estate, which in 2009 received planning consent for 4.8 million square feet, an area almost one third the size of the Canary Wharf estate.

Canary Wharf Group already owned 25 percent of Wood Wharf. It said that it now had a development pipeline at Canary Wharf with planning permission for 5.29 million square feet.

In September, the company told Reuters that it aimed to help double the size of Canary Wharf of the same name by 2021, soaking up capacity for an extra 100,000 passengers a day from Crossrail and undertaking demand-led developments. ($1 = 0.6513 British pounds) (Reporting by Brenda Goh; Editing by Hans-Juergen Peters)

Wow, so many new buildings! I love it! And to the people that complain about boxiness of CW - I prefer having Chicago-style skyline at the CW and another one at CoL distinguished towers. Sort of like in NYC

Let's keep fingers crossed. They will surely built it in several phases but one or two of those towers would be a good start.

New architects appointed for Wood Wharf



Canary Wharf Group plc has appointed architecture firm Terry Farrell and Partners (Farrells) to create a new masterplan for Wood Wharf, one of central London’s largest and most prestigious future development sites.

The Group is revising the masterplan for the Wood Wharf site to cater for evolving market requirements. The new office, residential and retail development aims to attract a broader mix of future tenants, including growing firms in the creative media, technology and telecommunications sectors, building on the success of adjacent Canary Wharf and the Tech City cluster.

Canary Wharf Group acquired the full rights to develop the site in January this year from previous joint venture partners Canal and River Trust (previously British Waterways) and Ballymore. The 20 acre site, which is immediately east of Canary Wharf, currently has outline planning approval for 4.7m sq. ft. of mixed use office, retail and residential space, about one third of the size of the existing Canary Wharf estate.

The new Wood Wharf masterplan will be designed to improve integration with the surrounding residential community; provide flexible, bespoke office space for the dynamic business growth sectors in London and create unique cultural and retail amenities that will add to the East End’s reputation as the creative heart of London. The design brief will also call for attractive new waterside parks, European style-streets and squares as well as environmentally sustainable buildings. Overall density is likely to be similar to the currently consented masterplan, with an increased proportion of residential space, catering for increased demand for people to live close to their workplace.

Ahead of development, the Group is looking at a range of temporary uses for Wood Wharf and has already installed temporary waterside parks and landscaping. These could include work space for start up companies, pop-up restaurants and cafés, street markets and performance spaces. The site hosted several of the world’s largest super yachts during the London 2012 games, which attracted thousands of visitors.

Sir George Iacobescu CBE, Chairman and Chief Executive of Canary Wharf Group plc said: “We are very pleased to welcome Terry Farrell and Partners on to the team to develop the design for Wood Wharf. The successful development of this site will be another massive piece added to the East End’s regeneration jigsaw. We can help London’s digital economy continue to thrive by providing growing businesses with bespoke office space and amenities, in close proximity to excellent transport, talent, clients and capital. The development of Wood Wharf will enhance London’s reputation as a business, lifestyle and cultural capital and further shift the City’s centre of gravity eastwards.”

Mmm... a majority of tall building to the south of the site, that's a lot of shade for the rest of the site, could be dank and dingy in the afternoon. On the bright side, it will catch the sunrise when most people are asleep.

Not the worst scenario in the world. It's not like its a tower development planned for California.

I think this a fantastic development!
