Mayor of London approves Wood Wharf

The Mayor of London, Boris Johnson has granted planning approval to the Wood Wharf scheme in London, masterplanned by Allies and Morrison for Canary Wharf Group.

Once complete, the development will see a semi-derelict 13.6 hectare site transformed with 3,610 homes, retail amenities, a community centre, 1.9 million sq ft of office space, and a network of parks and public squares. At least 40% of the residences will be affordable.

This is an area of London that the Mayor considers suitable for tall buildings and the focus point of the development will be a 57-storey tower designed by Swiss duo Herzog & de Meuron. The Mayor of London, Boris Johnson said: “This vast development will transform a currently derelict brownfield site beyond all comprehension into a thriving new community with thousands of new homes and jobs.

“This is exactly the kind of scheme that we need to accommodate London’s booming population that is set to break through the nine million mark within the next decade.”
