Other Information

  • St George's Wharf is the first tower in London to be topped with a wind turbine which will provide power for all the towers public lighting.
  • Other environmental technology employed includes heat pump technology removing the heat from naturally drawn water to provide heating for the apartments. Triple glazing will provide sound-proofing and heat-loss/gain as will thermal blinds between the glazing. The result will be the tower will use one third of the energy of a similar building.
  • St Georges Wharf Tower if built will be the tallest wholly residential tower in the U.K and the second tallest in Europe after Turning Turso in Sweden.
  • The tower is the final part of a scheme, the rest of which has been completed and sold out. Construction for the tower was originally planned to start in 2003.
  • The scheme has been revised twice following feedback from the Commission for Architecture and the Built Environment and Lambeth Council. Despite meeting all the requirements the latest design has been refused planning permission by Lambeth. It was supported by the Mayor of London, Ken Livingstone who threatened the council with legal action. The developer successfully appealed to the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister winning an eventual planning inquiry.
