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.
