“Swiss practice unveils designs for 58-storey resi tower in London’s Docklands.

The firm, which is behind the new Chelsea stadium along with a handful of other schemes in the capital, has drawn up the tower for Canary Wharf Group as the developer looks to build more than 3,000 homes at a plot on the eastern side of the Docklands development.

The 58-storey tower, which comes in at 210m high, is the firm’s second tallest building after its 56 Leonard scheme in New York which has less floors but is 40m taller.

The 483-apartment scheme, called One Park Drive, is the first residential development by the Swiss practice in the UK and is expected to be completed towards the end of 2020. Prices starts at £575,000 for a studio, £750,000 for a one-bed, just over £1 million for a two-bed with three-bed apartments starting at £1.6 million.”
