Monstrous Towers

30 JANUARY 2020

Make sure you have your say on this proposal to London Legacy Development Corporation. You are not required to be a resident in the area to object to planning applications.

Planning Reference: 19/00477/FUL



Height and massing:

All 3 towers are 26 storeys high, causing shadowing over the river, and over homes in Bromley By Bow, Capital Towers, Bow River Village, and Sugar House Island.

Local residents will lose their privacy. BRV Phase 2 and Capital Towers residents have floor to ceiling windows which are not designed for towers at such close proximity.

The design is not in keeping with the local area, where the surrounding buildings are on average 7 storeys high.

Commercial spaces:

There is already an oversupply of commercial space in the area, with units in Phase 1 and 2 unused, and units in Capital Towers still vacant since completion in 2017. Additional empty retail units will increase the risk of crime in the area.

Lack of public realm improvements:

  • Minimal cycle highway
  • Park on main road
  • Not enough waste disposal


  • There is already insufficient parking in the existing development.

LLDC will take more notice from a higher volume of objections. So make sure you have your say by emailing to:
