75-storey Chalegrove Properties-developed building on Canary Wharf will be home to 752 apartments

One of the UK’s tallest residential towers, the Landmark Pinnacle, was topped out yesterday, but it will be another year before the first residents move into the 75-storey block in London’s Canary Wharf.

Developed by Chalegrove Properties, at 239 metres tall the Squire & Partners-designed building will feature 752 flats, ranging in price from £480,000 up to £4m for a penthouse apartment.

Chalegrove said around 70% of the flats had been sold, and 70 apartments would be offered for shared ownership through housing associations.

The first residents will move into the building in the latter part of next year, and the overall scheme will be completed 12 months later.

Amenity areas will include a roof garden, an amenities area across the 56th floor featuring lounge space, a gym, bar, dining rooms and a golf simulator, while an indoor park occupies the 27th floor.

The building will also feature a cinema on the ground floor.

Chalegrove has overseen the development of other schemes on the Isle of Dogs including the 173-home Island Point project on Westferry Road, also designed by Squire & Partners.

Ian Spencer-Woodbridge, project manager at Chalegrove Properties described the topping out as a “momentus occasion” for the firm and the construction programme, which will have taken five years once fully completed.

“This accomplishment is a testament to the teams involved, at every level, who have put in a tremendous amount of hard work and effort into reaching this stage.

“It’s fantastic to see Landmark Pinnacle take its final shape and make a prominent mark on Canary Wharf,” Spencer-Woodbridge added.
