A major residential-led mixed use development in Canary Wharf.
The development will include three towers, a 65-storey tower rising to 217 metres, alongside two other shorter towers of 20 and 34-storeys containing a hotel and further residential accommodation.
The scheme, to be known as Alpha Square, will house 634 homes, a 20-floor hotel of 231 rooms managed by Dorsett Hospitality International and a new school and health centre.
The scheme was consented in 2016 having been called in by the Mayor of London (one of the last to be granted approval by the then Mayor Boris Johnson). A complex project with multiple uses on a very tight urban site, the scheme is in the process of being refined by our delivery team, working closely with Architect’s in Hong Kong who are overseeing the development of the concept.
The project will use the very latest techniques to speed up the construction process, building on our experience from recently completed major projects elsewhere in London including Elephant Road in Southwark.
The project will be developed to BIM level 2 and the co-ordination of the BIM model will be led by McBains.
When completed, Alpha Square will be the largest project completed by the McBains design team to date; representing a new phase in the scale and complexity of projects our design teams are capable of delivering.
