New 'Decathlon' plans for Canada Water

Sellar, the developer behind the Shard has submitted plans to redevelop a site in Canada Water, currently occupied by Decathlon, with a major scheme that would include five buildings, the tallest of which would be 40 storeys.

The development, which proposes to create a cinema, gym and health centre, will sit alongside the new library and residential development next to Canada Water station and will join the new retail and leisure scheme, to create some much-needed critical mass and make Surrey Quays unrecognisable within a decade.
