South Quay Plaza

July 9, 2020In Blog, Lifestyle

South Quay Plaza is a residential scheme under construction in Millwall on the Isle of Dogs, London, within the borough of Tower Hamlets developed by Berkeley Group Holdings and designed by architect Foster + Partners. The site of the development lies to the immediate north of Marsh Wall and to the immediate south of the financial district Canary Wharf. It is scheduled for completion in 2022.

The building has been designed to maximise space in the 2.6 acres of gardens that surround it, allowing sunlight to flood the gardens and provide dual aspect views for many of the apartments. The development includes three towers, the tallest of which will reach a height of 214.5 m (704 ft) making it the second tallest residential skyscraper currently proposed for London. There will also be new public and retail space, caf├ęs and restaurants as part of the scheme.

The new development will replace three office and retail buildings on the site which were built in the 1980s. Prior to this redevelopment, the site was hostile and heavily built-up, creating a visual and physical barrier between Canary Wharf and areas south of Marsh Wall. The restricted access and lack of public space was preventing the regeneration of the wider neighbourhood.

The vision for the project was to unlock and transform the neighbourhood by opening up an unprecedented sixty percent of the site to public use, introducing over 1.5 acres of generously landscaped and accessible public open space, and creating new pedestrian routes to connect the residential areas of Millwall and Cubitt Town with Canary Wharf.

The towers are orientated specifically to increase visual connections and public access to the dockside, whilst maximising dual aspect views and daylight for the residential units. Together with the new landscaping, this opens up and celebrates the waterfront, creating a new activated and animated space that will be enjoyed by workers and residents alike.

The sustainable residential towers provide the area with much needed mixed tenure housing, offering exceptional new homes in close proximity to public transport, open space and the vibrancy of Canary Wharf.

Located just a few moments from the heart of London’s fastest growing business district, SQP is incredibly well connected. Within a five minute walk you can access the South Quay DLR station, Canary Wharf underground station and the forthcoming Elizabeth Line (Crossrail).

Living at South Quay Plaza will provide residents with a 5-star lifestyle as they become exclusive members of The Quay Club, providing fantastic facilities including a state of the art gym, 20m swimming pool overlooking the South Dock, business lounge, screening room and private dining room as well as the stunning 56th floor bar and terrace, offering incredible views of the city skyline.
