Previously, the firm was responsible for engineering works of the Shard and New York's Freedom Tower. It is presently handling several other projects, including multiple high-rise buildings at London's 22 Bishopsgate and Meridian Gate.

Canary Wharf Construction has received planning consent for the 700,000ft² office tower, which is situated in the heart of Canary Wharf.

The primary tenant of the building will have the scope to modify and customise the layout of the building to fit occupational requirements.

The British property group has also gained planning concept approval for another 65,000m² office tower on the Isle of Dogs in London.

Architect Kohn Peterson Fox Associates was appointed designer for the project, which will be a 28-storey block development to the south of the Canary Wharf.
