Canary wharf development gets go ahead

Three significant planning proposals for Canary Wharf were approved by Mayor of London Boris Johnson yesterday. They include the Isle of Dogs Crossrail station, a new 27-storey hotel and the complete redevelopment of Wood Wharf to provide new offices and shops plus nearly 1,700 new homes.

The planning applications were passed at the Mayor's regular strategic planning meeting.

The Crossrail station on the Isle of Dogs will create a major transport hub at Canary Wharf connecting to the DLR and London Underground network.

"We cannot stop building in our city and just as we will forge ahead with our huge house building programme, we must ensure the development process for all construction projects is as smooth and speedy as possible," said mayor Boris Johnson. "Once Crossrail arrives in Canary Wharf it will act as the catalyst for the construction of more offices and the other facilities including new shops and more hotels, creating lasting jobs over the coming decades."
