North Quay is an approved office development, consisting of three towers on the north side of Canary Wharf in London. The developer is Canary Wharf Group and the architect is Cesar Pelli.

The heights of the towers will be:

  • Tower 1 - 221 m (725 ft) - 40 floors
  • Tower 2 - 120 m (390 ft) - 18 floors
  • Tower 3 - 209 m (686 ft) - 38 floors


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.. It announced the two skyscrapers as being 209m and 221m above ground level, slightly taller than previously thought.

It isn't known when the development will proceed, as it is competition with many other proposed office developments in and around Canary Wharf, in the City of London, and elsewhere in central London. The opening of Crossrail in 2018 will make the scheme more attractive to potential tenants as Crossrail's Canary Wharf station will be immediately to the south of it.
