The two residential towers will rise to 34 and 37 storeys with the shorter connected to a nine-storey podium of offices.
In total the next phase of development on plot F, near the site of the former Daily Mail printworks, will provide 410 flats with balconies, a roof top park above the offices which will offer 37,540 sq m of workspace.
This next phase has been designed by Allford Hall Monaghan Morris, with Aecom providing project management and Gardiner& Theobald as cost consultant.
It follows three other major building projects, which moved to construction last year. Wates picked up Plot A1 – a 270,000 sq ft 35-storey tower for 186 build to sell homes.
Mace took the contract for Plot A2 – a 250,000 sq ft office-led project including a 56,000 sq ft leisure centre, McAleer and Rushe is working on Plot K1 – a building solely for 79 affordable homes.
Together these three projects are worth around £300m.
The £3bn Canada Water scheme, on the south side of the Thames in Rotherhithe, ranks as the London developer’s most ambitious pipeline development with 5.5m sq ft of mixed-use space planned.
