Tower Hamlets ‘rejects’ five-tower Docklands development ahead of inquiry
Tower Hamlets council has resolved to reject PLP’s supersized Westferry Printworks scheme, which would deliver 1,524 new homes as part of a five-tower scheme on east London’s Isle of Dogs.
The practice’s proposed towers range in height from 19 to 44 storeys, but the scheme also includes a further six buildings of up to 14 storeys on a 5ha site to the north of Millwall Outer Dock, owned by former Daily Express and Daily Star proprietor Richard Desmond.
In addition to the new homes the latest incarnation of the Westferry Printworks scheme would deliver 1,730sq m of restaurants and bars; 1,048sq m of flexible commercial space, plus residential management space, healthcare space, a crèche and a community centre.
