Other Information

  • With completion of phase 1, the phase 2 tower was subject to a complete redesign of the original approved 26-storey scheme. A new planning application for the revised design has been approved increasing the tower to a height of 37-storeys, with a completely new profile and an interesting cladding scheme which is a dark 'graphite' finish to the north facade and light 'silver grey' to the south.
  • Construction work commenced in May 2007, with the site tower crane installed in August, and the building's core started rising in October 2007.
  • The crane was removed in March 2009, and cladding was externally completed in early April.
  • Upon completion Sky Plaza was the tallest student housing in the world, a title it lost to London's Nido in 2010.
