KPF wins go-ahead for 27-storey Docklands office block

  • Comment

Tower Hamlets Council has approved plans for this 65,000m² office block designed by KPF at 1 Bank Street, Canary Wharf in east London

The 27-storey scheme includes three levels of trading floors, a ground-floor shop, a free-standing kiosk on South Dock Promenade, new public realm, landscaping, a basement car and cycle parking and a new decked promenade at the South Dock edge. 

It is understood European bank Société Générale has already agreed a lease for more than a third of the office space and will occupy the ground and first to seventh floors on a 25 year lease starting in the summer of 2019.

George Iacobescu, chairman and chief executive officer of Canary Wharf Group, said he was pleased by the planning decision and said there were many more schemes to come in the group’s ‘extensive development pipeline’.

He added: ‘[The] decision highlights Canary Wharf’s position as one of the most attractive places to work, providing much needed jobs to London’s crucial financial services industry and its supporting networks.’
