Our design for this residential-led development on the Isle of Dogs will play an integral role in the emerging regeneration of the South Quay area. We’re delivering 332 new homes for Londoners – among them 71 integrated affordable homes, including family units – and are dedicating more than 50% of the site to landscape design and public open space.
Residents will benefit from numerous shared amenity facilities, including a gym, a games room, two lounges, outdoor play areas for all ages, and a generous roof terrace with panoramic views. The base of the building will contain a new nursery school with enough places for all the children living in the building, plus additional space to accommodate local residents. Finally, there are provisions for bike storage and a floor of start-up office space for small and medium-sized enterprises.
At 45 storeys, the tower is an intermediary between the high-rise Canary Wharf cluster to the north and the range of tall buildings to the south. Its clean, elegant design establishes a strong visual relationship with the adjacent Madison tower, also designed by Make.
The development will result in a legacy of community infrastructure – an important step towards South Quay’s transformation into a vibrant, thriving slice of East London.
The building has been designed to an exemplary standard, making a significant new place and improving the quality of the Isle of Dogs cluster.
