Canary Wharf Group has submitted plans for a 58-storey residential tower in the docklands

The developers of Canary Wharf lodged plans to build the Diamond Tower, a 212 metre tall residential scheme, with Tower Hamlets council.

The tower, designed by Horden Cherry Lee Architects, will comprise 566 apartments and is on the Newfoundland plot in Canary Wharf, bordered by Park Place, Westferry and Heron Quay road, at the western end of Canary Wharf looking towards the city.

The scheme, known as Diamond Tower due to its distinctive design, will require alterations to part of the Grade 1 listed West India Middle Dock wall.
