New providence wharf development final stage approved
The final stage of the New Providence Wharf development to the east of Canary Wharf has been approved.
Tower Hamlets Council’s strategic development committee voted to allow the 486-unit scheme, which features 12 and 44-storey buildings as well as a health and fitness club and shops.
Committee members decided developers Ballymore and Landor should contribute £1.5million towards improvements to the nearby Aspen Way roundabout, as well as provide 33 per cent affordable housing on site.
A donation of up to £4m for the roundabout was among the available options, but a majority of committee members opted for the larger percentage of affordable housing.
