HTA’s Landscape team completes biophilic public realm at South Quay Plaza Phase 3
South Quay Plaza is a significant project that plays a key role in revitalising the dockside and creating much needed open space. The scheme consists of 3 residential towers at 68, 54 and 36 storeys designed by Fosters + Partners, the refurbishment of an existing office block, and 1.78 ha of public realm. The scheme also includes a temporary park under the DLR and several roof terraces.
The public realm around the buildings is carefully designed to manage the perception of scale at ground level and provide a variety of spaces for active and passive use. Large tree planting and extensive soft landscape provide a park atmosphere for residents and workers, a green oasis in the wider Isle of Dogs.
HTA designed and delivered the spectacular bar and terrace area on the 56th floor is already popular with residents and has been recognised as a BALI award winner. The terrace offers fantastic panoramic views of Canary Wharf and the surrounding skyline and our landscape design includes beautiful planting, luscious trees and a green wall.
