NEWS IN PICTURES

Metropolitan Workshop has won planning for this mixed-use development, forming part of a wider regeneration project south of Canary Wharf, east London. The scheme, known as Indescon Court, will provide 450 apartments, along with retail space, a hotel and community facilities, and will make up part of EDAW's Millennium Quarter masterplan. According to Metropolitan Workshop the scheme will adopt a 'Manhattan' apartment style - developing a cluster of towers, which reach up to 25 storeys, with the eighth oor 'sky lobby' providing long-range views towards the City. A two-level podium links the towers and provides the landscaped terrace, which can be looked down upon by the apartments. At street level the podium will provide four active frontages for retail space, the hotel foyer, office space and community facilities, which the practice hopes will 'help create vibrancy and vitality'.
