Developer LBS Properties has secured planning consent for its £230m, 48-storey tower at 225 Marsh Wall, near Canary Wharf, a year after it was initially rejected by Tower Hamlets Council for being “too large”. The development, backed by Cubitt Properties and designed by Make Architects, will replace an existing office building with 332 apartments, 71 of which have been marked as affordable, ranging from one to four bedrooms. Nick Crawford, managing director at LBS Properties, said: “We are delighted to have received planning permission for this significant development, that will provide high-quality new homes, commercial space, and extensive public realm, contributing to the evolution of the South Quay area as an attractive place to live and work. It will combine with The Madison, due to complete in 2020, to provide a new public square for Marsh Wall East, and over 750 new homes in two slender towers”.
