Rockwell has appointed John Sisk & Son to deliver pre-construction services for a 30-storey mixed-use tower at Westferry, Canary Wharf
This project will see a mixed-use regeneration of vacant land adjacent to Westferry DLR Station providing a 400-bedroom hotel and 66 private residential units. The Westferry scheme will also include a restaurant and café, gym facilities and a landscaped pocket park.
Of the new homes, 35% will be affordable. This development will also create 259 new jobs in the hospitality and leisure industry.
Donal Mulryan, founder of Rockwell, said: “We are delighted to confirm the pre-construction services appointment of John Sisk & Son for the construction of this landmark development in Canary Wharf.
“Their track record and experience will help us to deliver this significant mixed-use scheme which will bring new jobs and businesses to the local area, in addition to much-needed homes for the local community. We are immensely proud of this development and look forward to seeing our vision become a reality.”
Ajaz Shafi, regional managing director at John Sisk & Son, added: “We are delighted to have been appointed by Rockwell to deliver this important landmark scheme in the heart of East London.
“We look forward to working in partnership with all our stakeholders and in particular the local community to create a lasting legacy. We deliver quality projects by using innovative construction techniques and digital technology to plan, design and build, with a focus on safety.”
It is envisaged that construction will begin on the Westferry scheme in Autumn.
