A 40 storey hotel could be built on the site of a disused office building on the Isle of Dogs.
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.

"We are excited to transform the currently vacant building into a landmark development."
