Canary Wharf submits new plans for One Park Place
Plans have been drawn up by Canary Wharf Group for the construction of a 31 storey tower on the estate.
The proposal for the currently unused space at One Park Place has gone to Tower Hamlets Council, which is expected to make a decision on the scheme early next year.
Full planning permission was previously granted by the council for a 10 storey office block in 2007 and then for a 45 storey tower in 2009 but neither came to fruition.
The latest scheme, designed by Squires & Partners and making up 670,000 sq ft (net) of office space, will be 162 metres above street level and include a pedestrian link to Mackenzie Walk.
There will also be a main entrance to the north, which leads to West India Avenue.
The top 29 floors will be for office use while there is also a ground floor and a lower ground floor. There will also be two basement levels.
A spokesman for Canary Wharf Group said: "This is slightly lower than the existing permission already granted but we feel this is more appropriate for the site."
Canary Wharf Group bought the 0.87 acres site in 2010 for £17.5m from receivers when previous owner Grattan Properties fell into financial trouble with debts of £1.3billion after the property crash.
The plans are set to go to Tower Hamlets Council's strategic development committee in early 2014.
