A masterplan for seven huge buildings has been drawn up by Cesar Pelli & Associates on 4.5ha of land in London's Docklands. The buildings, by the Jubilee Line on Canary Wharf South, will contain 200,000 m2 of commercial space.
Designers will firm up the masterplan in the coming months and 'several' practices will help with the seven individual buildings. Canary Wharf is to also build a 10-floor speculative building of 18,800 m2 to des igns by Gensler, revea led at th is year's MIPIM property conference. And Koetter Kim, a beaten finalist in the Pelli scheme along with GMW, is to design 6000 m2 of retail and space for 1000 cars underneath Canada Square east of the Canary Wharf Tower.
