25 Churchill Place is a skyscraper under construction[1] in the eastern part of the London financial district Canary Wharf. The building is expected to be completed by 2014.

Planning[edit]

Canary Wharf Group applied to Tower Hamlets for planning permission to construct a 23 storey building at 25 Churchill Place, E14 in April 2008. Permission was granted in November 2008.[2]

25 Churchill Place will be one of the most energy efficient office buildings in Canary Wharf. The Environmental features includes elevators that could store and reuse the energy elsewhere in the building. The building was designed by architects Kohn Pederson Fox who also designed The Pinnacle (London) in the City of London Financial District and will be developed by Canary Wharf Group.

Construction[edit]

Construction began on the 23-storey tower in February 2012 with Canary Wharf Contractors Limited as the main building contractor. On 7 February 2013, the installation of the final section of the steel frame marks the completion of the building and had reached a major milestone.[3] When completed, the building will stand 130m tall and will have 19 floors of Grade A office space.[4] The building will house the European Medicines Agency from early 2014 and Ernst & Young from 2015.
