The original plan was for three towers of 18, 38 and 40 floors. In 2017, new plans were submitted for a development of four towers of 30 to 67 floors.[4]


In March 2003 Norquil Ltd submitted a planning application to Tower Hamlets for two towers and a central link building at land known as Shed 35 North Quay, Aspen Way, London, E14.[5]

The application were approved on 12 January 2007 including a condition that the development shall commence within 10 years of that date.[5] A press release was posted on the official Canary Wharf website on 12 January.[citation needed]. It announced the two skyscrapers as being 209 m (686 ft) and 221 m (725 ft) above ground level, slightly taller than previously thought. A third tower was planned at 120 m (390 ft).

The site was an open-air car park managed by Britannia Parking until June 2006, following which it has since been occupied by construction equipment for the Crossrail station that is being built in the adjacent West India North Dock. This has prevented any construction of the three towers from proceeding.

In 2017, new plans were submitted for a development of four towers of 30 to 67 floors.[4]
