Chalegrove Property has submitted planning applications for a 75-storey mixed-use tower in the Docklands area of East London, poised to challenge the Shard on London’s skyline.
The tower, on the site of the City Pride pub on Westferry Road, would comprise 864 residential units and 84 serviced apartments.
It would be the second highest habitable building in the UK if built today, topped only by the Shard.
There would also be amenity floors, a roof terrace, basement car parking, and cycle storage.
The developers also submitted an application for 173 residential units on a separate development nearby.
This application involves the building of several smaller blocks ranging from three to five storeys, with rooftop pavilions, underground parking, open space and associated community buildings.
Consultations have begun on both sites.
