Mixed-use scheme will include homes and retail

A 30-storey tower designed by Simpson Haugh in the Westferry area of east London has been given the green light by Tower Hamlets council.

The hotel-led scheme is being developed by Rockwell Property and will be built at a site at the edge of Canary Wharf which has stood derelict for more than a decade.

It will have 400 rooms as well as restaurant and retail space at the ground floor along with 66 new homes of which 35% will be affordable for local families.

Cost consultant is Acumen while OCSC is providing engineering services. A project manager and contractor have yet to be appointed.
