Canary Wharf Group has restarted work on 1 Park Place

The construction project in Docklands which was put on hold two years ago, having submitted fresh plans for a new (1.1m sq ft) 35-storey office tower.





CWG has lodged a Squires & Partners-designed reserved matters planning application with Tower Hamlets council for an office scheme of up to 1.1m sq ft to replace previously consented proposals.

The new development, which will deliver a maximum gross internal area of 1.1m sq ft and a minimum building size of 430,000 sq ft, will comprise two basement levels, a ground floor level and 31 upper storeys, as well as the construction of a new pedestrian link. The building will rise to 568ft AOD.

Canary Wharf Group said an outline planning permission on the site would provide a “significantly more attractive offer for potential tenants, providing certainty on the use and quantum of development that can be delivered on the site, while allowing for flexibility for tenants to create a building that best meets their specific needs through the reserved matters process.”

The site was previously occupied by the Littlejohn Frazer building, an 53,000 sq ft office building which has now been demolished. Planning consent was obtained in 2008 for the development of 1.2m sq ft of floorspace designed by Horden Cherry Lee Architects.

Beautiful. Reminds me of the Taunusturm in Frankfurt, except with setbacks and possibly better cladding.

This tower will be slightly taller than the one you mentioned above. Good addition to CW although it's design is not iconic.

I prefer glassy iconic buildings like One Canada Square, Gherkin, Cheese Grater or Shard but this one will be a good addition too like i said before.

Anyway it is nice to see many towers going up all over London.

How tall was the previous design. Could you please post a pic of it just to compare the difference?

I just dislike that whatever gets built there will hide 1CS. I prefer the latest design though, the previous one is too random- It's not all about height.

Previous design was undeniably nicer to me.

This reminds me of One St Peters Square in Manchester on steroids, which has turned out very nice.


But this will only look nice if they pull off the materials like they have in Manchester.
