Article added:

Dearneside is honoured to have supplied Architectural Metalwork to three of the tallest residential buildings under construction in Western Europe; Newfoundland Tower, South Quay Plaza development and City Road development.

Newfoundland Tower and South Quay Plaza development are currently both under construction in the Canary Wharf area in London.

South Quay Plaza, designed by the world-famous architects Foster & Partners and developed by Berkeley, will eventually include three towers, the tallest of which will reach a height of just over 214m making it the second tallest residential skyscraper currently proposed for London. The development will also include shops and facilities, and will sit in 2.6 acres of landscaped gardens. It is due to complete by 2020.

Newfoundland Tower has been dubbed the diamond building because of its diamond-like support frame. This type of frame has also been used on other iconic buildings such as the Gherkin. Once finished it will house over 560 apartments and rise to an impressive 60 storeys. The development is due to be completed in 2020.

In addition to these two developments, Dearneside has provided architectural metalwork and balcony packages for the London-based City Road development. Also designed by the world-renowned architects, Foster and Partners, 250 City Road creates a new landmark for London at the heart of one of the most vibrant areas of the Capital. At 42 storeys high, this impressive tower provides breath-taking views across the city.

In total, these three developments will feature in excess of 1500m of balustrade manufactured by Dearneside.
