|Twin Towers Planned for Docklands
- Official support likely for Lord Rogers's scheme
CANARY WHARF is set to welcome twin partners to the Docklands with news that plans are being made to construct two towers in the area.
Local government officials are to see the plans this week and are thought likely to give the official go-ahead to the scheme designed by big name architect Lord Rogers. The towers would be thirty-something stories high, not quite up to the heights of Canary Wharf - aka One Canada Square - but tall and distinctive enough to cut a dash on the London skyline.
For some years Canary Wharf stood alone in Docklands, but ongoing development in the reclaimed docks area of east London has seen Europe's biggest skyscraper joined by other giant buildings. The new Twin Towers would add more prestige and more office space (some four million square feet) to the area.
