Coun­cil­lors re­ject tower pro­pos­als

The Wharf - - NEWS -

Plans to build a dual height tower near West­ferry DLR sta­tion have been unan­i­mously re­jected by Tower Ham­lets Coun­cil.

The pro­pos­als would have seen 320 ho­tel rooms and 202 res­i­den­tial flats, as well as re­tail and com­mu­nity floor space, built at 82 West In­dia Dock Road.

A con­ser­va­tion and de­sign ad­vi­sory panel meet­ing in Oc­to­ber 2016 raised con­cerns about the height of the planned build­ing in com­par­i­son to its sur­round­ings, as well as the high den­sity of the homes within it and the fact only 34% were af­ford­able.

The tower’s ar­chi­tects are re­spon­si­ble for Dol­lar Bay on South Quay
