Battle starts over giant flats project

BIDDERS are lining up for the first major package on the tallest residential scheme in Europe, to be built next year in London's Docklands.

PC Harrington, Byrne Brothers and O'Rourke will return bids tomorrow (Friday) for the £30 million concrete package on developer Ballymore's Pan Peninsular Tower at 1 Mill Harbour near Canary Wharf.

The 16-month package involves the substructure, core and slab work on the scheme, which will be managed by Canary Wharf Contractors.

The £300 million project will feature two interlinking towers of 38 and 50 storeys containing 700 apartments. The penthouse on the 50th floor is expected to sell for around £10 million.

A source close to the scheme said: 'It will be a tricky job ogistically as the site on the lower levels will run right next to the Docklands Light Railway.

There's a lot of concrete going in ? around 4,000 cu m for the basement slab alone.'
