Foster + Partners takes on Sugar Quays project

  • Comment

Foster + Partners has taken over the design of the Candy brothers’ Sugar Quays scheme on the north bank of the Thames next to Tower Bridge

The prized £34 million site next to Tower Pier is currently occupied by a seven-storey 1970s office building designed by Terry Farrell, which could now face demolition.

The Fosters appointment spells the end of the road for David Walker Architects’ alternative scheme to redevelop the building, which is currently leased by sugar giant Tate & Lyle.

CPC Group, the Guernsey-based property development company owned by Christian Candy, hopes a planning application will be submitted in the final quarter of this year. 

Candy said: ‘This unique site directly on the river has strong potential for redevelopment. We are working closely with the team at Foster + Partners to review the possibilities for the site, which could potentially be an existing office upgrade or redeveloped for commercial or residential use, subject to freeholder consent and planning.’

Grant Brooker, senior partner from Foster + Partner, added: ‘We are absolutely delighted to be chosen by CPC Group for this very important project.

‘We know the area well and we share our client’s vision that the site has the potential to revitalise this piece of London’s riverside heritage.’

CPC Group previously worked with Foster + Partners on 21 Chesham Place – a boutique residential development in Belgravia.
