Riverside South by Richard Rogers Partnership (Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners), Canary Wharf, London

The site as of October 2008, photographed by Daniel Clements Photography ©2008. It was quite difficult to imagine the immense structures that will be towering over the city of London in the near future. At a grand height of 236m and 189m respectively, accomodating 45 and 36 floors.

This is how the finished project will look.

Map of the site.


Riverside South is the largest single office european development (around 300,000 sqft gross). It needs its own electricity substation.

The client, Canary Wharf Group, commissioned RRP to prepare development proposals for a high quality office development appropriate to the site and of a size to compliment the scale and density of Canary Wharf. The brief includes high quality public facilities at ground level along the river edge, with office, trading and ancillary support accommodation at the upper levels and parking, servicing and plant below ground.

Main Contractor : Canary Wharf Contractors Ltd

Service Engineer : Hilson Moran Partnership

Structural Engineer : Yolles Partnership Ltd


Here are some other views of recent finished projects around the site on Canary Wharf. I had the pleasure of enduring a fierce hail storm shower whilst creating these images, digital photography equipment and ice don’t go together very well !
