Plans announced for City Pride development

The landowner of the former City Pride pub has announced it is to submit a planning application for the site's development.

Chalegrove Properties Limited, which also owns the nearby Landmark buildings, said its proposal includes a mixed-use tower with a roof terrace and basement car parking.

The application for the 15 Westferry Road address also includes retail and open spaces. The proposed height of the building is not yet known.

In addition, the developer is submitting plans for the vacant site at 443-451 Westferry Road, adjacent to City Pride.

Proposals for that include buildings of three to six storeys.

Both areas are formally owned by Glenkerrin, which received permission for a 62 storey tower in 2009.

However. the Irish firm's development plans were scrapped when the group went into administration in 2011.

The pub, which dated back to the 50's, closed in March of this year after the site got new owners.

Those interested in the developments should submit their views to Tower Hamlets Council's planning department by January 3, 2013.

Yet another offshore company minimising tax and income to the Treasury
We who do have to pay are disgusted
