Bringing a vibrant, mixed-use and sustainable waterside development to E14, South Quay Plaza is set to change the London skyline
Developed by Berkeley Group, the property is set to be the UK's tallest residential scheme, in the historical London Docklands, and will include a 68 storey, 220m tower and a smaller 36 storey tower. With both architecture and interiors by world-renowned Foster + Partners, the development will total more than one million square feet and will deliver 888 residential properties, including 188 affordable homes, together with cafes, shops and restaurants.
One of the biggest drawcards of South Quay Plaza will be the views afforded, with the iconic stepped tower structure being built at a 45 degree rotation to maximise water views. Each apartment within the scheme will have floor to ceiling glazing, offering an uninterrupted panorama of the city's skyline.
Offering a selection of light and spacious, studio, one, two, three bedroom apartments and penthouses, residents will also benefit from an exclusive, state of the art health club and spa which is complete with a 20m double height panoramic swimming pool, whilst the entire 56th floor is dedicated to a residents' club lounge including a bar, screening room, business lounge and an enormous terrace with outside bar and dining facilities.
Berkeley Homes has recently launched the project into the Asian property market with an exhibition and sales event at the Landmark Mandarin hotel, Hong Kong. Construction is set to begin in 2016, with phase one scheduled to be completed by 2020.
