Work underway at Canary Wharf’s next major phase at North Quay

After more than a decade of inactivity work is finally underway to construct a Canary Wharf tower at North Quay.

The company plans a life science building at a plot beside both West India Quay DLR station and Canary Wharf Elizabeth line station.

It’s a pretty small tower by Canary Wharf standards at just 23-floors.

Numerous plans have been mooted for the north Quay plot with little happening while construction on the Elizabeth line was underway.

Upon completion it should also be far easier to walk between Canary Wharf and Poplar station, making the interchange easier between DLR trains serving that branch (eg the DLR line via City Airport and Silvertown) and the Elizabeth line.

A number of other blocks are planned to the east of this the forthcoming tower. Allies and Morrison are behind the area masterplan which will see housing, hotels, new public space plus cycle and pedestrian routes across the site.

Next door is Billingsgate market which is due to move out to Barking, freeing up land for redevelopment.

One thought on “Work underway at Canary Wharf’s next major phase at North Quay

  • I am looking forward to seeing these developments finished. It seems ages since new towers have been built at Canary Wharf.
    What I like about this development is the developer is planning new public spaces and cycling and pedestrians routeways including making it easier to walk to stations. It sounds like money is being spent on public realm to make the toute ways safe for both pedestrians and cyclists.
    Spending on public realm and on going maintenance of public realm is essential for all new developments and neighbouring areas.
