LONDON | Heron Quays West | 198m | 147m | 95m | 34 fl | 22 fl | 13 fl | On Hold

This is a new scheme in Canary Wharf that was proposed recently. Designed by Richard Rogers, work should hopefully start by the end of the year. The buildings currently on site shouldn't take much demolishing.

This should link the centre of the estate with the Riverside South development, which is currently U/C and should be Canary Wharf's new tallest once complete.

























The lower floors of the development are trading floors, which is why the tower is 200m but only has 35 floors.

Very massive complex.It will look good anyway if they use that cladding that shows the structure.

Canary wharf are always so secretive about their buildings. It would be nice to actually see a publicity shot and not always ' what it could like' image thats not even official.

Actually, those renderings were a little inaccurate. I've edited post #1 of this thread with the proper, official versions.

nice edit!

Oh, one question, by the looks of it, Riverside South will block most if not all of it when viewing from the city, is this just what it seems to be like or will we actually see it from the city?

The Shartd (lbt) doesnt look industrial, i think you're getting it confused with other towers, 122 leadenhall for example (designed by RSH as is this tower).

how is this tower industrial looking other than being a skyscraper?

Jesus what the hell is so great about Frankfurts skyline? It's good yeah, but the individual buildings inspire nothing in me.

The last pictures really show the impact of Richard Rogers' two projects on Canary Wharf and its skyline.

I think the initial design of Riverside South (without the visible bracing) would have looked better alongside Heron Quays West.

Go-ahead for 31-storey skyscraper - finally

A SKYSCRAPER that will become one of London's biggest buildings has finally been given the go-ahead to be started.

Controversy and complications have dogged the plans for the Heron Quays West site at Canary Wharf for almost 10 years.

Permission was granted in 2008 for three buildings that would eventually create almost 8,000 jobs - but progress was halted by Michael Gross and Michaeal Hunt, owners of the final two 'red huts' on Heron Quays.

They had turned down Canary Wharf's offer of £5 million each for their land and objected when Tower Hamlets Council ordered them to sell.

Demanding a total of £50 million, they took the council to a public inquiry last year, but The Docklands can now reveal they have dropped their opposion.

A spokesman for the owners said: "we withdrew our objects to the CPO and agreed terms of a sale to Canary Wharf which are confidential".

Canary Wharf Goup is thought to be delighted to have brought the matter to a close, having first started to negotiate for the land back in 2001.

The public inquiry had seen Canary Wharf Group accuse the landowners of "holding them to ransom", while the council denied it was the "poodle" of Canary Wharf after accepting a £10 million offer to improve community facilities.

A date for building work to be start has not been set yet, but the new owners will be desperate to complete the three-building development.

The buildings will each be of 12, 21 and 31 storeys, with the highest reaching almost 205 metres. The likes of Goldman Sachs, Deutsche Bank and UBS were all mentioned at the inquiry as potential tenants.

The development will include the relocation of an existing canal and a new shopping devleopment and plaza.
