About project
About project

Marking the gateway to Canary Wharf, this new office development provides flexible, leading-edge commercial facilities and enhances the public realm

Built on a prominent waterside site – one of the last remaining commercial lots on Canary Wharf Estate – this 26-storey tower’s sweeping façade is informed by the building’s context and internal functionality. Although designed as a multi-tenant building, the project saw the design team work closely with a primary tenant to establish a brief and incorporate the company’s specific requirements into the final design.

On the lower levels large trading floor plates push into the curved façade while the main office floors above ‘pull back’ from the busy street. A roof deck directly above the trading floors, at the base of the sweeping west façade, offers an open green space for tenants to enjoy. Views from the terrace, and multiple internal balconies are positioned to maximize views over the River Thames and across the city. A pedestrian promenade to the south is included as part of a high-grade external public realm, complete with planters, green wall, retail kiosks and sunken seating areas along the water’s edge.

The project achieved a BREEAM Outstanding rating.
