TQ3779 : Development, South Dock (2)

taken 2 months ago, near to Poplar, Tower Hamlets, Great Britain

Development, South Dock (2)
Development, South Dock (2)
Marking a considerable expansion of Canary Wharf, covering an area of more than 20 acres over what was known as Wood Wharf, and comprising the usual mix of flats, offices, shops etc. Master plan by Allies and Morrison. These buildings at the west end are well progressed - cladding is working its way up the tower on the right. The circular base on the left will end up as a 58-storey block of flats, One Park Drive, by Herzog & de Meuron. This section is built on land still shown on the maps as water (and I think shows the upshot of the activity depicted here two years earlier TQ3780 : Development, Canary Wharf).
Far right is a sliver of bonus Chinese frigate (TQ3779 : South Dock).
