1 Millharbour, E14

  • Comment

The mixed-use, high-rise project for Millharbour, just south of Canary Wharf, occupies a tight site, contained by the Millwall Docks and the line of the Docklands Light Railway. In its first incarnation, as a 37-storey tower, the scheme was a key catalyst for the Millennium Quarter masterplan on which Squire and Partners collaborated with EDAW. The tower, now reduced to 25 storeys, is seen as a landmark for the area and a generator of new activity there.The new public square proposed at ground level is central to the scheme - this is seen as the natural centre of this part of Docklands. A restaurant on three levels and retail space are also proposed. The tower takes the form of two highly glazed, transparent wings separated by a central core clad in stone. The office floors take the form of 'villages', served by sky gardens which act as social spaces. A public viewing gallery at roof level will offer spectacular views across London.
