Harbour Central will provide over 900 new homes across a range of buildings. Located just south of Canary Wharf on the Isle of Dogs it is designed to be in tune with all of its neighbouring communities.
Four tall residential buildings, two lower rise residential buildings and a six storey leisure facility are placed around two contrasting open spaces: a residential garden and an attractive public square.
A new pedestrian route links neighbouring residential areas to the south with transport connections and future developments to the north. Also important is a new street to the northern perimeter of the site which gives priority to pedestrians. This route is a key element of the masterplan. In addition, the resulting active retail frontages are connecting this area through to the square.
Maine Tower is the 42 storey marker building; its distinctive form sits centrally to the south of the site between the open spaces. The cubic expression of the facade is an arrangement of ‘pods’ which punctuate the verticality of the building. To the north the lower buildings are given a colourful façade facing the new street and future school and park. The east and west buildings feature a more vertical emphasis with tactile coloured cladding within recessed balconies.
