Greenland Group submits plans for 67-storey residential tower

Chinese developer Greenland Group has submitted plans for what would be the tallest residential building in Western Europe.

The proposals for the 67-storey residential tower in Canary Wharf’s West India Quay area include 869 homes.

If approved, the development will measuring 241 m – 21 m higher than Berkeley Group’s neighbouring South Quay Plaza project, which is being built by Laing O’Rourke.

The developer was granted planning permission by the mayor of London in 2009 to demolish the existing Hertsmere House and construct a 242 m office building, but the developer has since amended its plans to include more high-quality homes.

It acquired the site in 2014.

Greenland senior planning manager Setareh Neshati said: “Greenland has extensive experience delivering high-quality developments around the world, operating across four continents.

“If permitted, this will be one of Greenland’s most significant developments in Europe and will further strengthen our presence in London.”
