Height row leads to Olympicopolis tower redesigns

10th March 2017

The residential elements of Allies and Morrison’s £1.3bn Olympicopolis cultural quarter in Stratford’s Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park are up for revision, following complaints over protected views of St Paul’s Cathedral. The 30-storey and 40-storey residential towers on the Olympicopolis scheme are understood to be among half a dozen high-rise projects in Stratford which could be affected by potential changes to the sightline policy, which was sparked by complaints over SOM’s Manhattan Loft Gardens 42-storey skyscaper. The new designs are to be unveiled in May.
