Towering Olympic development


The redevelopment of a former industrial site near to the Olympic site has been given the go ahead.

The proposed build covers 3.2 hectares and will feature a 43-story tower block – it will also preserve a listed building, Warton House, which will be refurbished, PropertyWeek has reported.

Stock Woolstencroft designed the scheme for the developer Genesis Housing Group. When completed, the site will feature a 153-bedroom four-star hotel, 27 workplace units, 655 homes and 10,946 sq ft of commercial office space.

The popularity of London and low housing stocks have led architects to look skywards when they design new office space in London.

London Bridge Tower, known as The Shard, was approved in 2007. When it is completed it will stand at over 300 metres high.

Canary Warf is an example of the new London skyline with the HSBC Tower, One Canada Square and Citigroup building dominating the city offices.
