Make Architects has released an image of could become one of the UK’s tallest residential skyscrapers in the Isle of Dogs
The practice has worked up designs for the 55-storey building at 225 Marsh Wall on behalf of developer LBS Properties.
The detailed application, which could provide 425 new homes – 84 of which would be classed ‘affordable’ - has been submitted to planners at London Borough of Tower Hamlets.
The building would also contain 700m² of office space, plus 475m² of flexible office or nursery space with another 300m² of community space.
A basement would contain plant equipment and 16 car parking spaces, while a new area of open land would be provided to the west of the building.
The development would provide approximately 860 cycle parking spaces.
At 181m tall, the tower would be higher than the current tallest residential block currently standing – SimpsonHaugh and Partners’ Beetham Tower in Manchester.
However, permissions have been granted for taller towers, including Squire and Partners’ proposed 75-storey City Pride tower, also in Docklands.
The 800-flat scheme replaced an earlier 63-storey proposal by Foster and Partners for the Westferry Road site, occupied by the now-closed City Pride pub.
