Developers Rockwell, in partnership with FirethornTrust, have submitted an application to redevelop the Quay House site - currently home to a three storey office building.

The proposals include 400 hotel rooms and 279 serviced apartments which can be rented for up to 90 days.

There will also be a gym, restaurant and cafe, while the area underneath the nearby DLR track is also set to be redeveloped into a landscaped public area.

It is expected to create up to 230 jobs once open, with an additional 300 during construction.
