Millennium Harbour

Isle of Dogs, London

Client: Ballymore Properties Ltd
Value: £20,000,000
Date: Completed January 1999

Downstream from Cascades, two adjacent sites, one formerly for the import of timber, the other steel, were sequentially developed by different clients, but fused into a single entity with shared access and facilities. The proposals of an urban design study, commissioned by LDDC, had considerable influence on the overall concept, in that the axes of two long parallel streets at right angles to the river penetrate the site and culminate in views through framed grand openingsin the riverside buildings.

In the Millennium Harbour site, these framed views form the focus for an array of apartments in the landside layer of the building. At Seacon Wharf, the downstream river fronting wing of Millennium Harbour was used as the left-hand component of a new symmetrical arrangement with a twentyonestorey tower as a centrepiece, giving the entire 300 metres of river frontage a suitably grand and heroic composition. Unusually, the development contains an above ground multi-storey residents’ car park due to abnormally difficult ground contamination.
