A FOURTH office tower has been earmarked for construction at Canary Wharf in London's Docklands.
Irish property group Ballymore is behind the latest scheme which is likely to cost between £300 million and £400 million to build.
The company has submitted plans to Tower Hamlets Council to build the 34-storey tower at 1 Millharbour. Retail outlets have also been proposed.
Tower Hamlets confirmed it had received a planning application for the site. A spokesman said: 'A decision is expected early next year.'
Ray Hardy, the managing director of commercial property at Ballymore, said it would use its own in-house contractor as main contractor, subcontracting the specialist packages of work.
He added that the company had been talking to steelwork contractors including O'Rourke and Cleveland Bridge.
