Squire wins planning for four-strong tower cluster - image

Squire and Partners has been given the green light for this mixed-use high-rise scheme on the Isle of Dogs, east London.

The project will feature four towers, ranging in height from eight to 40 storeys, which will be built on a former industrial site at 22 Marsh Wall.

Grouped around a central piazza, the development will provide around 700 new homes as well as offices and community facilities.

According to a spokesman, the pair of eight-storey blocks has been designed to 'relate to the smaller-scale residential developments' to the south of the scheme.

Meanwhile the 27- and 40-storey skyscrapers on the northern side will look towards the high-rises in West India Dock and the cluster of towers at Canary Wharf.

The project will boast a number of environmental measures, including a biomass heating plant, 740m 2of solar panels, and 'biodiverse' roofs.
