“Baltimore Tower represents the second phase of SOM’s master plan for Baltimore Wharf. The sinuous tower is a beacon for the 2.7-hectare site located immediately south of Canary Wharf, and for the wider Isle of Dogs district. The 45-story building comprises 366 residential units in a mix of layouts and configurations. All apartment floors feature expansive, cantilevered balconies that are elliptical in plan; the balconies’ axial rotation on the tower plan produces the building’s undulating form. Baltimore Tower also includes a streetfront cafe that opens toward the Millwall Inner Dock waterfront, as well as a triple-height penthouse restaurant whose outdoor terrace boasts panoramic views.” (Baltimore Tower, SOM)
