North Quay Development - 228m, 218m, 208m + 113m
Directly across from Canary Wharf, towers have been planned for the North Quay site for well over a decade. The original plan envisioned two towers of 200m+, however the arrival of Crossrail (the Canary Wharf station is in the dock) meant that the site was utilised to build the station. Now that the site is no longer needed for Crossrail, Canary Wharf have unveiled their plans – by Foster + Partners – for a four-tower development, three of which are above 200m. The towers to the west of the new central podium are residential focused, whilst the office tower will be built to the east.

For those curious, the site to the immediate east is Billingsgate Fish Market; speculation of its relocation has been rife for many years due to its potential for intense development. It is approximately 2-3x the size of the North Quay site, but it is doubtful concrete proposals will emerge until this and Canary Wharf’s Wood Wharf – documented on the previous page – are well under way.
