Arrowhead Commercial has submitted a planning application for two residential towers on London’s Isle of Dogs, totaling 792 units, replacing an earlier proposal for an office scheme on the site.
Arrowhead previously had planning permission for two office buildings on the site reaching 26 storeys, but the lower demand for office space since the recession lead to a re-imagining of the scheme as a residential project.
The two buildings, at a proposed height of 55 and 50 storeys, will also provide around 700 square metres of retail space and a public dockside walkway.
An agreement in principle has been reached with Tower Hamlets and the Greater London Authority to provide 42 affordable houses in the scheme.
The towers would be situated East of Marsh Wall, on the outskirts of Canary Wharf.
