Three blocks are now becoming a fixture on the skyline as the Canary Wharf Group’s major expansion into Wood Wharf ramps up.
Wood Wharf lies east of the Canary Wharf estate and unlike the group’s early development, this site features thousands of homes.
It’s 3,600 new homes to be exact across the entirety of Wood Wharf (so more than just these three blocks) though it will also contain two million sq ft of office space alongside 350,000 sq ft of retail space.
A Morrisons supermarket is set to open later this year.
The other two blocks will contain 760 flats reaching 34 and 49 floors in height.
Blocks are a short walk from the Jubilee line and will be marketed as built-to-rent flats.
Almost opposite on the over side of South Dock is 30 Marsh Wall.
This will top out at 48-floors after an attempt to increase heights to 55 was rejected.
Towers to the east of the main bulk of towers will extend the skyline when viewed from Greenwich Park.
There’s also scope for many more buildings in this area of Marsh Wall given the sheer amount of 1980s dross.
As for Canary Wharf group, they’re also now development North Quay after many years of inaction.
A life sciences block is set to be built as the area moves away from towers mostly occupied by financial services.
