Planning[edit]

In March 2003 Norquil Ltd submitted a planning application to Tower Hamlets for two towers and a central link building at land known as Shed 35 North Quay, Aspen Way, London, E14.[1]

The application were approved on 12 January 2007 including a condition that the development shall commence within 10 years of that date.[1] A press release was posted on the official Canary Wharf website on 12 January.[citation needed]. It announced the two skyscrapers as being 209m and 221m above ground level, slightly taller than previously thought.

The site was an open-air car park managed by Britannia Parking until June 2006, following which it has since been occupied by construction equipment for the Crossrail station that is being built in the adjacent West India North Dock. This has prevented any construction of the three towers from proceeding.
