Proposal for 22-storey tower in Poplar
Developer Ballymore has submitted plans for a residential tower in the heart of Poplar.
The proposal, which is to be heard by the Tower Hamlets strategic development committee on Wednesday, is for a building rising to 22 storeys, holding 223 apartments. Just over 20 per cent of the development will be affordable housing.
Planning officers have recommended granting the scheme, which would see over £1.75m paid for local infrastructure improvements, including £250,000 to improve the nearby Langdon Park DLR station.
The plans are for vacant land at the corner of Cording Street and Chrisp Street.
