The Ontario Tower is a residential development in Blackwall in the London Docklands.

It was built by Ballymore as part of a wider scheme in New Providence Wharf to provide new housing to meet changing demand in the Docklands area. 'Ontario' was designed by the architects who created landmarks such as Chicago's Willis Tower. The Ontario Tower is a distinct landmark of the Tower Hamlets Skyline[citation needed] with its blue LED rimmed elliptical profile. The 29-storey project was completed in autumn 2007, and is expected to be joined by a much taller neighbour (Providence Tower) on an adjacent site.
