A 26-storey residential development in Limeharbour is set to launch at an event at Canary Wharf’s Four Seasons.

The Liberty Building on the Isle of Dogs will be unveiled at 2pm on Thursday, February 25.

Developer Telford Homes is offering a mixture of one, two and three-bedroom apartments, which each have either balcony or terrace space.

There will also be a duplex penthouse stretching across the two top floors of the development.

The scheme also includes a gym and a landscaped piazza with a fountain.

Telford Homes group sales and marketing director David Campbell said: “At Telford Homes we take pride in delivering high quality homes that are designed to equally appeal to both tenants and owner occupiers alike.
