Plans in for South Quay tower


Plans have been submitted to replace a three-storey office block on London’s Isle of Dogs with a 40-storey residential and hotel building.An application for the redevelopment of Quay House on South Quay has been lodged with the London Borough of Tower Hamlets by developer Rockwell in partnership with FirethornTrust.The plans include a 400-bedroom hotel, 279 serviced apartments and dockside leisure facilities in currently underused public spaces beneath the Docklands Light Railway viaduct and Admirals Way.Rockwell said that, at 40 storeys, its proposed development overlooking Canary Wharf would be consistent with the height of neighbouring buildings and those currently under-construction in the South Quay and northern Millwall area.Architect for the scheme is SimpsonHaugh & Partners.Rockwell was founded in 2015 by Donal Mulryan, who was a founding director of Ballymore Properties UK and went on to set up West Properties in 2002.
