London's tallest residential tower set for approval

Tower Hamlets Council will meet tomorrow (2 April) to vote on whether to approve plans for London’s tallest residential tower, designed by Foster + Partners

Called The Pride, after the City of Pride pub which it will replace, the 200m-tall tower will be located next to Canary Wharf and have 410 apartments and eight penthouses.

It is expected that the council will grant approval for the 62-storey building, backed by developer Glenkerrin, after a report by council planners recommended that it go ahead.

Tower Hamlets is also expected to approve plans for a 43-storey tower called Angel House, designed by Jacobs Webber Architects. The tower has a distinctive overhanging upper floor, lending it the nickname ‘Number One’.
