George Sell George Sell Uploaded 26 January 2020


UK: Rockwell and FirethornTrust have been granted planning consent for the redevelopment of Quay House in Canary Wharf.

The London Borough of Tower Hamlets has given the go ahead for the 40-storey scheme which will deliver a 400-bedroom hotel, 279 serviced apartments and dockside leisure facilities. Work is expected to start on site later this year.

The site was acquired via a joint venture between Rockwell and FirethornTrust in October 2018 and the planning application was subsequently submitted in July 2019.

“I’m delighted that the London Borough of Tower Hamlets has granted permission for this exceptional development,” said Donal Mulryan, founder of Rockwell.

Chris Webb, founding partner of FirethornTrust, added: “The borough’s decision is an important one, in that it will facilitate the delivery of much-needed jobs and visitor accommodation, while also providing significant improvements to the public realm. We are excited about bringing this development forward with Rockwell to deliver a landmark waterfront scheme overlooking Canary Wharf.”
