SOM To Refine Arrowhead Quay

Ballymore are having what is one of the longest running tall office projects in London refined to bring it up to date and add appeal for a planned delivery in 2009.

The 111 metre tall Arrowhead Quay designed by Skidmore Owings & Merrill was originally floated back in 2001 and has been approved for over 5 years now by Tower Hamlets. This makes it very much a product of its time and the requirements and planning environment have both moved on a bit since.

Sitting on South Quay in Docklands just over the water from Canary Wharf the project is something of a rarity these days of a tall office building in an area where developers are gradually switching to increasing amounts of residential accommodation. Ballymore did dabble with this previously for this site but it appears they will be sticking to a single office building.

The current design of Arrowhead Quay is basically a typical glassy corporate box in the polished style that SOM do best in the International Style that compliments the nearby office buildings on Heron Quays.

As well as offering 45,000 square metres it will give occupants quality relaxation areas in the form of triple height atriums creating airy spaces within the building.

One possible thing that can be redone is the height of the existing building which at 25 floors is capped to the height limits imposed on the area by Tower Hamlets in their Millennium Quarter plan. These limits have become guidelines as developers, namely Ballymore themselves, have gradually pushed further and further with repeated planning applications.

This isn't the only development under the architect's pen at the moment. Chantrey are also working on a new development for South Quay that will apparently have details released before Christmas.

Combined with Arrowhead Quay, these two schemes should move the proposals from the area on past the original and rather restrained Millennium Quarter plans into something more reflecting the renewed confidence the area is experiencing.
