Kensington-based Michael Squire and Partners has won planning permission for 1 Park Place, a 30,000m 2office building in Canary Wharf, London Docklands. The £40 million development replaces an existing building adjacent to Canary Wharf Tower and the scheme represents one of the final elements in the development of Koetter Kim's masterplan for the area. The design provides more than 10 open-plan trading floors.
A Portland stone and glass facade, with a granite base, fronts onto West India Avenue, while the top floors are set back from the facade. There is to be new landscaping at the rear of the building.
