Minor Changes Made To Riverside South

Super bank, JP Morgan has finally made some solid indications it is going to occupy the Riverside South development in London, the largest single office development under construction in Western Europe.

The latest planning application features a number of changes, many of which are small such as the location of doors, modifications to the number of escalators and the removal of a trading floor from the middle building that will reduce its height by almost 5 metres to 70.16 metres, and the amount of floor-space on offer in the development by 12,838 square metres.

The twin towers, which have been designed Rogers, Stirk Harbour + Partners, are currently under construction and once complete will be amongst the tallest towers in London. The taller of the two is set to be over 236 metres making it marginally taller than One Canada Square.

The plans by the banking giant will see it fully occupying both buildings along with the recently purchased Cazenove which will be moving from the city to the wharf along with its parent company.

Completion is however some time away - Canary Wharf Contractors are on site and have been busying themselves with the delivery of vast amounts of material to construct the basement that has caused literally a dozen trucks to line up at once.

Meanwhile, a tower crane has been partially erected, and work is also continuing on the south basement wall whilst pumps have been placed in position to do one of the basement sections on the north western part of the site.
