Architects office HOK has revealed plans to build a 234-metre-high skyscraper in east London called Spire London that will segregate private and social apartments. Construction work is set to begin in January 2017 and the 235 metres (770ft) high building, will be the highest residential skyscraper in western Europe. Demolition work in Canary Wharf has already begun for the project, which is due for completion in 2020, and apartments are already on sale. The project is being led by Chinese property developer Greenland Group, who has also invested in skyscraper projects in Los Angeles, Sydney and New York. The new tower will be neck-and-neck in height with Canary Wharf’s tallest skyscraper, the office building One Canada Square. The tower will contain 861 apartments spread over 67 storeys, and will be constructed on a site overlooking West India Quay near Canary Wharf in east London.
