Final plans to redevelop South Quay Plaza next to Canary Wharf on the Isle of Dogs have been submitted by developers to the local authority.

It follows public consultations between last June and February, involving 250 members of the public.

The scheme designed by Foster & Partners architects, now lodged with Tower Hamlets Council by Berkeley Homes, reopens the South Dock quayside in the former Millwall Docks, currently inaccessible to the public.

It includes retail units and 900 homes in two landmark towers reaching 73 and 36 storeys.

Berkeley’s managing director Harry Lewis said: “This represents a year of hard work with four public consultation events and numerous meetings with stakeholders. It is providing much-needed new homes.”

The E14 development along Marsh Wall includes more than an acre of new and enhanced public open space, a re-activated waterfront at South Dock and the Millwall Cutting, to complement the retail stores, bars and restaurants that will link the Canary Wharf business and shopping district closer to the Isle of Dogs.

Demolition at South Quays and construction of the taller tower could get under way by the end of the year, with work on two lower-rise buildings starting in 2017.
