Canada Water Pricks London Skyline

Currently starting to finally make its mark on the London skyline is the under construction tower at Maple Quays at Canada Water developed by Barratt Homes.

Marketed as Ontario Point, the tower is the third phase of the project, that last month saw the final apartments in building A2 handed over for occupation. The new road that the scheme includes which will run between building A1 and A2 has also been handed over, this time to the local council, Southwark.

The tower itself, named building A4, has seem the concrete frame at a little over half its eventual height having reached the 14th floor of what will be 27 floors above ground, enough to start to rival the nearby council tower blocks of Regina Point and Columbia Point. At present rates it should top out by Christmas. Building A3, formally known as Victoria House will be completed by the end of July.

Externally, work has begun on adding the fašade to the tower now. The double height ground floor has had the glazing added, and the fašade is up to level three.

Designed by Glenn Howells Architects, they will contain 282 new apartments between them, split between 226 market units and 57 affordable ones. Residents will be able to enjoy stunning views from the roof garden that will top Ontario Point and give it uninterrupted views over London.
