The South Quay Footbridge was designed by Wilkinson Eyre Architects. The 180m long pedestrian bridge crossing was commissioned for London’s Docklands. The bridge had both temporary and permanent elements, with the ability to open for shipping. This was achieved through its two identical spans, one fixed and the other openable In its original configuration, it created an s-shaped crossing between South Quay and Heron Quays. As planned, the northern span has now been removed and the southern half swung into a new orientation spanning the partly infilled dock. The simple elements of the bridge – the curved lines of the oak-clad deck, two raking masts and the shifting arrays of cable stays – create a visual dynamic, accentuating the kinetics of the design and contrasting sharply with the uniform urban grid beyond. 25 Bank Street is an office tower in the Canary Wharf business district of London, United Kingdom. It is currently home to the European headquarters of the investment bank J.P. Morgan & Co. The building was developed in 2001–2003 by Canary Wharf Group as one of five new buildings on its Heron Quays site. The building was designed by architects Cesar Pelli & Associates Architects and built by Canary Wharf Contractors.[2] Before construction, 25 Bank Street had been earmarked by Canary Wharf Group for occupation by Enron's European subsidiary. This plan was abandoned in 2001, prior to Enron's collapse later that year. From 2004, 25 Bank Street served as the European headquarters of Lehman Brothers until the bank's insolvency in September 2008. The building continued to be used by the bank's administrators and various sub tenants before being sold to JPMorgan Chase for £495 million in 2010. Canary Wharf Group plc (CWG) is an integrated property development, investment and management group of companies. It has developed previously derelict docklands into over 16 million square feet 16 million square feet of office, retail and leisure space.
