Big new application for Skylines

A new application has been submitted for the Skylines site on the Isle of Dogs. Development over the past few years has typically been to the south and west of Canary Wharf but it now seems to be shifting a bit to the south east. The Skylines site situated abutting both Limehouse and Marsh Wall will sit just to the south of Angel House, (due back to Tower Hamlets committee soon with recommendation to grant after recently getting deferred). Designed by Farrells it will house 806 residential units in total, 635 of them private. This has been reduced slightly from the scoping opinion which was for 903 residential units, the tallest building being 52 storeys. The full application has also dropped to 50 storeys, after consultation with the council. It will still be taller than nearby Pan Peninsula however. The scheme will also house a 123 bedroom hotel, 2,020sqm of retail and 6,900sqm of office space. The developer is ZVB Skylines with Rolfe Judd as agent.

Below are a couple of pictures I’ve taken from the design and access statement showing the Skylines site against other consented schemes on the Isle of Dogs and Canary Wharf.
