Canary Wharf’s rising towers: January update

Over the past few months I’ve been covering the towers now rising across Canary Wharf and the Isle of Dogs.

One reason is that the area is currently seeing more towers rising than at any time in its history, and these will substantially change views of the areas alongside the local population and number of workers.

These three towers are part of Millharbour by Galliard Homes, named Harbour Central.

The messy random cladding of previous phases is fortunately gone.

This is Newfoundland Tower from Canary Wharf group. It’s one of their first forays from office towers to residential.

On the left is an office tower from the group – 10 Bank Street. It looks very stumpy. Taller and slimmer would’ve been preferable.

Next up is the first stages of a huge scheme which will double the size of Canary Wharf estate at Wood Wharf.

The rising building on the left will be the tallest and is another residential scheme.

It will end up like this:

And now back over the former dock to a spot near South Quay Plaza station is this rising tower:

And at full height:

  • I just want to know if these builders are closely regulated and how much the local MP and government involved in safe gaurding the well fare of future habitants .
