The Gallery | Housing tower approved

A 67-storey housing tower is to be built in London after planning permission was granted.

Tower Hamlets Council approved an application by Greenland Group for the 241m tall residential building at Canary Wharf.

The developer claimed the redevelopment of Hertsmere House would create the tallest housing tower in Western Europe.

Construction could start this year and complete by 2020.

Greenland Group senior planning manager Setareh Neshati said: “We are delighted that Tower Hamlets has decided to share our ambition to deliver a landmark residential building at West India Quay. This is Greenland Group’s most important project in Europe.”
