Inspector overturns Tower Hamlets decision on a major proposal for second time in weeks

3DReid-designed propoasls for a twin-towers development near Canary Wharf in east London have been given the go-ahead by a planning inspector – overturning the decision of Tower Hamlets councillors.

The 30- and 26-storey scheme, earmarked for a site at Millharbour, will deliver 319 homes and around 1,700sq m of non-residential floorspace on a 0.65ha site currently occupied by low-rise office and retail buildings.

It was created for developer Meadow Residential after earlier, taller proposals by O’Mahony Pike and Metropolitan Workshop were abandoned for viability reasons.
