    Demolition Finally Starts For Docklands Tower

    Published on 23-04-2008 by Skyscrapernews.com
    One of the many approved residential towers in London's Docklands that has been hanging around for years like a bad smell is finally seeing work begin on site as the contractors move in to demolish the existing buildings.

    Developed by the Aitch Group and designed by RMA Architects, 82 West India Dock Road will stand opposite the Westferry DLR station a stones-throw away from West India Quay itself.

    The 69 metre tall tower will contain 99 flats plus a 1,306 square metres of office accommodation.

    The long history of the development of the scheme can be seen from the multiple applications that have been made gradually refining it starting in August 2004 culminating in an approval in May 2007.

    Elliptically shaped, It will be encased largely in metal cladding, white render and glass facades whilst the top of the tower features a "cloud" shaped crown complete with an enclosed roof garden within the structure.

    Also featured in the scheme is a lower-rise seven storey block which will host the majority of the affordable residential units - 23 out of the 36 on offer. The remainder of the affordable units are located in the lower floors of the tower forming a buffer between the commercial space and 86 private apartments.

    Separating the shorter block from the tower will be a slender landscaped public area giving pedestrian access through the site that has until recently been industrial units.
