Scheme designed by Pilbrow & Partners

Hong Kong developer Far East Consortium has said JRL has begun work on a twin tower scheme on London’s Isle of Dogs.

Designed by Pilbrow & Partners, the practice of former PLP partner Fred Pilbrow, the Consort Place scheme, previously called Alpha Square, will involve two buildings of 35 and 65 storeys.

The £470m development (pictured) will include nearly 500 apartments, a four star hotel and health centre.

JRL is carrying out piling and basement works with the entire scheme due to be finished by the end of 2023.

Far East Consortium is also behind the £30m revamp of Art Deco gem Hornsey Town Hall in north London.

The revamp of the grade II*-listed building in Crouch End is being carried out by Ardmore under designs drawn up by Make.
