Cuba St | Canary Wharf | 40/57 fl | 170m | Rejected

Another scoping opinion for the Marsh Wall area.

This time for the site due south of 22MW & West of the proposed 30 & 40 MW towers. For those on the 22MW tour its the site with the Ballymore hoardings on Cuba St (Its not a Ballymore scheme as they sold the site well over a year ago).



Request for Scoping Opinion as to the information to be contained within an Environmental Impact Assessment in support of an application for the erection of 2 towers to provide 390 residential units (approx), a hotel (approx 200-200 bedrooms), office space

No idea of height or amount of floors but comparing it to the other sites nearby & amount of units & rooms I would hazard a guess of them being around the 30fl mark.

That part of the Wharf is going to be very dense if all the planned projects get going.

NIMBY

Hmmm, not sure if this is good or not -- I've just bought a flat facing on to Manilla Street on the south side of this development. Looks like I'll be getting close to my neighbours...!

Just out of interest. Did you research what was potentially going to be developed nearby? You might have quite a few neighbours on this site & the sites of 30 & 40 Marsh Wall.

I did quite a bit of research before putting in my offer for that flat. I was quite happy with The Landmark being just outside because when it's complete the ground floor will be restaurants and cafes, "a destination in its own right" according to their marketing blurb.

I had to quite a bit of digging around to find out what the plans for Cuba Street were. The last I heard, before your post, was that it was owned by Ballymore who were going to put three buildings on the site -- two low rise at either end and a high-rise in the middle. The high-rise was in a more open part of the street and would, in my opinion, fit in well with the other buildings in the neighbourhood.

It will be interesting to see what the new developers plan for the site. If they're talking about two towers of 30-ish floors a lot of people will have intimate views of each others apartments across Tobago Street and Manilla Street!

You can always lodge a complaint ( being a local resident you will probably more information through your door when more concrete plans are released- feel free to upload here ) but seeing as its known that something tallish will probably be proposed for the site there it might not get far.

Look on the bright side it looks like it would be more of a mixed use scheme than Ballymores previous scheme so might have a hotel bar & a bit more animated at ground level than purely a residential scheme. Probably wont be built just yet so you will have a bit of breathing space.

Yes, I'm not too bothered about it -- it's just as likely to be a benefit as it is to be a problem. When you but in a place like Canary Wharf you have to live with the possibility that someone will come along and stick a skyscraper outside your bedroom window :-)

I'll be sure to keep the forum updated with any information that I receive!

This has come to light on the London Projects & Construction compilation thread, where a somewhat creative image has been posted:

http://www.hurriyetdailynews.com/n.p...don-2010-11-24

Two towers, south side of Cuba Street, 157m and 122m, I'm not entirely sure whether or not this is the same site but a hotel is mentioned...

Curves? Canary wharf? You wouldn't normally put the two together. Interesting, would be nice to see some expansion at CW as we haven't seen anything for a while now.

Not 100% sure on this, I just think it's a bad render

It sounds like the Ballymore site that , it would appear, these Turkish developers have bought. There could be potential for two towers here as outlined in the thread but nothing has been submitted so claims to be starting in 2011 are , shall we same wildly optimist ( how times around here have we seen boasts of developers proposing something that will start straight away and are still development sites today).

Anyone know what the significance is of that dotted line in the render, running at about the height of the Morgan Stanley building?
