Pilbrow & Partners wins planning approval for new Canary Wharf development
The London Borough of Tower Hamlets has approved Pilbrow & Partners plans for the Market Building in Wood Wharf.
Wood Wharf is Canary Wharf’s new urban quarter, with Market Building being the ‘centerpiece’.
The 14-storey building accommodates a mix of collaborative workspace at the heart of the building, which is set between a grand public retail market at its base and a new ‘sky bar’ and restaurant at its top.
Fred Pilbrow, partner at Pilbrow & Partners, said: “We are excited that construction can now commence on this pivotal building in the new Wood Wharf.
“The idea of creating new public space and connections to the existing Canary Wharf is central to the design philosophy. The office space will allow for flexible use, encouraging collaboration and promoting well-being with generous daylighting.”
The building provides a level of individual control and external amenity spaces for each floor and day-lit stairs which encourage their use in preference to the lifts.
Ivan Ferris, design and development executive, Canary Wharf Group, added: “We are delighted to have received planning consent for our Market Building at Wood Wharf, after a long journey.
“The building once complete will form the centre piece to a vibrant new district at Canary Wharf, with the provision of unique retail, office space and roof top restaurant.
“We would like to thank the Pilbrow & Partners team for their vision and continued hard work to reach this point. We look forward to the commencement of construction.”
