Work To Restart On Riverside South

Construction work is due to get underway again on the sprawling Riverside South development in Canary Wharf, which is currently the single largest office development under construction in Europe.

Construction on the massive 335,000 square metre development which will feature the tallest tower in Canary Wharf had taken a pause whilst banking giant JP Morgan decided if they were going to plump for it as their main headquarters or not. With that move now off, and the bank having opted for 25 Bank Street instead, construction has been halted with the foundation slab complete.

The next stage of construction of the Rogers, Stirk, Harbour + Partners design will begin in approximately six months and see the project built up to ground level with the basement floors constructed. This will then give the developers, Canary Wharf and JP Morgan, another opportunity to take stock, and to reconfigure the project further to fit in with the expected economic climate.

The news will hardly come as a surprise to many observers however - Canary Wharf announced at the end of last year it would take two and a half years to build up the project to ground level, and it appears that is a fair approximation of how long it will have taken them. It just goes to show that sometimes pronouncements on development schedules can actually be somewhat on the ball.
