Foster + Partners design London’s tallest residential skyscraper

Architectural practice Foster + Partners have submitted plans for a 73-storey skyscraper for London’s Canary Wharf, which, if approved and when completed, will become the tallest residential tower in the UK.

The building is part of a major investment and re-development plan by British property developer Berkeley Group for the South Quay Plaza area that will also include a 36-storey tower and provide a total of 900 new homes. In addition, the proposal includes 6,000 square metres of public spaces, as well as shops, cafés and restaurants.

The planning application was submitted to the London Borough of Tower Hamlets in early April 2014 and a decision is likely to be made later in the year. If planning permission is secured, construction is expected to start in January 2015.
