Newfoundland

The Newfoundland project is a 60-storey residential development at the western end of the Canary Wharf Estate. The site is bounded by Westferry Road to the west, Middle Dock to the east and Bank Street to the south. The Jubilee Line runs directly beneath the site.

Newfoundland represents the first stage of new residential development at Canary Wharf and has been designed by renowned Mayfair-based architects, Horden Cherry Lee who have created an exceptionally delicate aesthetic rarely found in such impressively high towers. Newfoundland’s striking appearance stems from its transparent diagrid structure, also notably used in another famous London landmark, ‘The Gherkin’.

The structural engineer is WSP who also designed The Shard.

KEY POINTS OF INTEREST
• • To support the 60-storey structure, we bored  2.4m diameter, 60m long reinforced concrete piles into the chalk beneath the site. Each took 3 days to build and were installed either side of the Ju7bilee Line tunnels.
• We excavated 18,000mof earth to prepare for the basement of the building – this would fill 7 Olympic swimming pools!
• Each of the towers’ eight steel grillages weighs between 30 and 50 tonnes, the equivalent of four double-decker buses.
• There will be 4,263 cladding panels on the main façade of Newfoundland.
