The developers have submitted new plans for 1 Park Place at the western end of the Docklands site after a previous plan was shelved two years ago.
The latest plan submitted to the London Borough of Tower Hamlets is for a 1m sq ft, 31-storey office building at the vacant site next to West India Middle Dock.
It will be located next to CWG’s proposed Diamond Tower residential skyscraper and a new 185m tower at Herons Quay West, which gained outline planning in July.
The Park Place site has an existing consent for a 45-storey building, comprising 1.2m sq ft of office floorspace and 4,500 sq ft of retail space, under the earlier plan.
New proposal for this site will see a 166m high skyscraper built over part of Middle Dock. The ground floor level of the building will be cut away to reveal the waterside and a new pedestrian walkway and landscaped area.
The building, which will be clad in natural stone and high performance glazing to reflect the surrounding building style of the first phase of development in Canary Wharf, will also be stepped back at the 10th floor and 16th floor to create south facing terraces.
Caroline McIntyre of planning agent DP9 will work with Jason Larkin, head of planning for Canary Wharf Contractors, on guiding the project through planning, which is hoped to be obtained in the Spring.
