Description of Quay House

Quay House is a mixed-use development in Isle of Dogs, London E14.

The scheme will replace the existing three-storey office building with a high-quality and sustainable development comprising a 400 bedroom hotel, 279 serviced apartments and impressive dockside leisure facilities.

At 40 storeys, the proposed landmark development overlooking the Canary Wharf will be consistent with the height range evident among existing buildings and those currently under-construction in the South Quay and northern Millwall area.

The new proposals will include the activation of currently underused public spaces beneath the DLR and Admirals Way – including dedicated parkour equipment – to improve accessibility for the local community, tourists and businesses, whilst simultaneously enhancing the pedestrian experience along the waterfront.

Quay House will generate up to 230 full-time equivalent jobs in the new hotel and serviced apartments, in addition to 300 jobs during construction.

Planning Permission Granted

London Borough of Tower Hamlets has granted planning permission for the redevelopment of Quay House.

The iconic 40-storey development by Rockwell and FirethornTrust will deliver a 400-bedroom hotel and 279 serviced apartments alongside impressive dockside leisure facilities.

Redevelopment of the existing three-storey Quay House will substantially enhance South Quay, activating currently underused public spaces beneath the Docklands Light Railway (DLR) and along Admirals Way with public realm improvements which include Parkour facilities for the local community.

Once open the development will have significant economic benefits which include 172 new full time jobs, in addition to 300 during construction. It is expected to contribute an impressive £34.2m of additional visitor spend to the local economy each year alongside £18.3m per year to the wider supply chain.

To ensure that employment opportunities are harnessed by the local community, the proposal expands Rockwell’s existing partnership with the London Training Centre, delivering a skills training initiative specifically designed to provide local people with access to qualifications and jobs in the hotel and hospitality sector.

The site was acquired in a JV between Rockwell and FirethornTrust in October 2018 and the planning application was subsequently submitted in July 2019. With planning permission now secured, work is expected to start on site later in 2020.

Chris Webb, Founding Partner, FirethornTrust said: “We are proud to have received planning permission for the redevelopment of Quay House. The Borough’s decision is an important one, in that it will facilitate the delivery of much needed jobs and visitor accommodation whilst also providing significant improvements to the public realm. We are excited about bringing this development forward with Rockwell to deliver a landmark waterfront scheme overlooking Canary Wharf.”
