Farrells’ 49-storey Docklands tower set for green light

Overview of Farrells' proposals for the Skylines Business Village site on east London's Isle of Dogs

Skylines scheme on Isle of Dogs recommended eight years after earlier plans rejected

Farrells is poised to secure planning permission for a huge mixed-use development in east London, the best part of a decade after an earlier scheme for the Isle of Dogs site was refused.

The development includes 589 homes, a new primary school with a rooftop games area, 10,000sq m of new business space, and around 2,200sq m of new retail and commercial space on a 1.44ha site currently occupied by the Skylines Business Village.

Farrells’ scheme features residential towers of 49, 26 and 22 storeys, along with a 12-storey business centre. It will also provide podium-level public amenity space and basement parking for around 70 cars and more than 1,200 bicycles.
