This set of architectural photographs document the construction progress at Baltimore Tower in Canary Wharf. With just a few more floors of glazing to go the building is nearing external completion. The curvature of the elliptical façade makes for some really nice formal compositions especially on a sunny day. Designed by SOM architects this residential complex is just one of many new skyscrapers to join the growing Canary Wharf skyline.

Architect: Leach Rhodes Walker Architects
Location: Marsh Wall, Canary Wharf

Photographs from the 4th May documenting the construction of the UK's tallest hotel situated in Canary Wharf. The Novotel building designed by Leach Rhodes Walker Architects is nearing external completion with just the internal fit out left to complete, the opening date is set for Autumn 2016.

This building is just one of many new towers to rise in the Canary Wharf area over the next couple of years, with many others just starting to break ground. With so much activity its becoming hard to keep track of all the developments, but with all this activity it it makes for some great photographic opportunities, the land reclamation taking place around Wood Wharf is particularly interesting to observe if you have chance to make it down there.
