Foster + Partners to build UK’s tallest residential tower

Foster + Partners has revealed plans for a 73-storey tower for London’s Canary Wharf, which will become the UK’s tallest residential tower.

“We will provide much needed new homes, including new affordable homes, over an acre of new and enhanced public open space, a re-activated waterfront onto South Dock and the Millwall Cutting, as well as space for retail, bars and restaurants. This is a rare opportunity to deliver such significant, high quality public realm in Canary Wharf,” said Harry Lewis, regional managing director at Berkeley Homes.

“Our plans for South Quay Plaza will deliver a world class development,” said Harry Lewis, the regional managing director at Berkeley Homes.

The development will lead to the demolition of existing buildings on the site, including a 1980s office block.

Lewis added: “”The proposals represent the culmination of over a year of hard work by the project team, which has included four public consultation events and numerous meetings with local stakeholders.”
