Gunwharf Quay Opens Fire

What will be Portsmouth's tallest tower, excluding the under construction Spinaker Observation Tower, has seen work start on its site.

East Side Plaza will reach 95m over it's 26 floors in a circular apartment building, with lipstick-like topping.

Designed by Broadway Malayan it marks the centerpiece of Gunwharf Quays providing giving an iconic impact to anyone who looks up the length of the Quays, off the center of a circular open space that almost evokes memories of new town planning of the 60s and 70s thanks to how the rest of its lower-rise neighbours border onto it.

The tower should be complete by 2007, and in the meantime expect more from Portsmouth in the not too distant future.
