Ballymore Properties has received detailed planning permission for its £400m Arrowhead scheme close to Canary Wharf

The 525,000 sq ft Skidmore Owings & Merrill designed scheme will be 26 storeys high at its tallest part with a Green roof, and 16 storeys at its lowest, with a rooftop terrace.

The development is in the centre of an area designated as the Millennium Quarter by Tower Hamlets council. The scheme will include restaurant and retail units on the ground floor with a public plaza facing the water’s edge and the dockside view.

Tim Wells, director at Ballymore, said: ‘Arrowhead will be the first major commercial scheme to come forward in the Millennium Quarter and will act as a catalyst for further regeneration in the immediate area.

The agents on the scheme are Jones Lang LaSalle and Cherryman.

Last week Ballymore received the go ahead for phase two and three of its 1m sq ft Snowhill mixed-use scheme in central Birmingham.
