Description of Newfoundland

Newfoundland, also known as "The Diamond Tower", is a residential-led development in Canary Wharf, London E14.

The 60-storey building on the Newfoundland site will be comprised of 566 suites, one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments.

The apartments will span 11ft in height ‘floor-to-floor', allowing for higher floor-to-ceiling heights than those at other residential towers planned in the surrounding area.

There will also be 14,360 sq ft of retail space; as well as 36,300 sq ft of external and 16,000 sq ft of internal amenity space which will incorporate a health club and spa that will offer superb views of London.

The slim diamond shape of the tower is determined by the narrow footprint of the site.The building is supported and braced by the external dia-grid structure on the façade of the building along with numerous deep reinforced concrete piles penetrating deep into the chalk below.

In addition to the building on site, CWG will be providing the equivalent of approximately 280 affordable off-site housing units at Lovegrove Walk, Barchester Street and Burdett Road.

Newfoundland is situated on the Western side of the Canary Wharf estate and bound by Westferry Road to the West, Middle Dock to the East and Bank Street to the South.

The concrete core of Newfoundland is now complete and has reached its full height at level 60.

The steel diagrid is now completed at level 59. The cladding installation continues to follow the construction of the main structure and is now over 50% complete. The tower cranes are now at their maximum height, sitting over 240m above sea level, 235m above ground level.

The fit out to the apartments is continuing lower down the building at level 25, with a range of works taking place. The
installation of flooring and bathrooms has now begun on the lower floors, along with the apartment ceilings.

Over the summer months, construction of the apartment floor slabs will be completed. This will allow the dismantling of the white, 3-storey screens that have climbed with the tower over the past year.

At roof level, three floors of plant rooms will be constructed in reinforced concrete, before work on the steelwork ‘crown’
begins. The cladding will continue to be installed up the building at approximately one floor per week.

Fit out works will continue to progress, with the addition of apartment doors and kitchens.

Canary Wharf Group plc has received planning approval for first residential building on Canary Wharf Estate.

London Borough of Tower Hamlets Strategic Finance Committee has passed a resolution to grant planning permission for a c. 470,000 sq ft, 58-storey net residential building.

The London Borough of Tower Hamlets resolution paves the way for the first ever residential building on the Canary Wharf Estate. The application will now be referred to the Mayor of London for final approval and is subject to completion of S106 legal agreements. The proposed 58-storey building on the Newfoundland site will be comprised of 566 suites, one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments. These apartments will span 11ft in height ‘floor-to-floor’, allowing for higher floor-to-ceiling heights than those at other residential towers planned in the surrounding area. There will also be 14,360 sq ft of retail space; as well as 36,300 sq ft of external and 16,000 sq ft of internal amenity space which will incorporate a health club and spa that will offer superb views of London. In addition to the building on site, CWG will be providing the equivalent of approximately 280 affordable off-site housing units at Lovegrove Walk, Barchester Street and Burdett Road.

The development is part of the on-going diversification of CWG’s portfolio, which has seen the company move both beyond the Estate with joint ventures at 20 Fenchurch Street and the Shell Centre, and broaden the type of space it develops. In particular, Newfoundland represents a major and exciting expansion of the Group’s residential portfolio, which complements the Group’s successful commercial and expanded retail portfolio.

CWG’s Chairman & Chief Executive Officer Sir George Iacobescu said:
“The Canary Wharf Estate is a growing community and I am pleased that this resolution has been passed. This means the Group will, for the first time, be able to offer residential space within the foot print of the Canary Wharf Estate and adjacent to our 800,000 sq ft of retail and transport modes. I firmly believe that Canary Wharf is an attractive place to both work and live thanks to the incredible retail and restaurant offering, and the robust transport links.

“I am pleased to be a signatory to the Mayoral Concordat on new homes for Londoners – particularly at a time of high demand for residential property in London. The Newfoundland development, together with the plans recently submitted for land to the east of the existing Estate, enhances Canary Wharf’s reputation as one of Europe’s prime mixed-use destinations.”

Designed by Horden Cherry Lee Architects, the façade of Newfoundland features a dramatic diamond design that will provide a striking view from the surrounding streets and buildings, enhanced by the building’s prime waterfront location at the western end of West India Middle Dock.

The tower also has a distinctive slim design, which, coupled with the diamond structure creates a contrasting yet complementary form to the nearby square and rectangular buildings.

Newfoundland’s diamond structure is not just an aesthetic feature but also improves privacy between apartments, with balconies and apartment façades being recessed and set within the external framework.
