The addition of 7 extra floors will be adding an extra 48 units at a height of around 500 feet above ground level. Is this the type of development the council is looking for in the wake of Grenfell Tower and Covid-19?
We are guided by the planning policy framework for the area and this part of Tower Hamlets is identified as a growth area and suitable for tall buildings. The proposed scheme is therefore in line with this designation. The building is being designed to align with all building regulations including those amended post Grenfell with input from the London Fire Brigade and specialist Fire Consultants.
