Other Information

  • The previous design for the building was 219.30 metres high and 70 floors and was originally proposed in 2005.
  • The building will be doubled skinned with the outer layer of glass highly transparent and a solid layer of cladding under it forming winter garden areas inbetween.
  • The aesthetics feature strong colourful vertical lines thanks to the stacking of the louvres which form them. These colours gradually fade as the cladding rises higher up the tower becoming lighter the nearer to the top they are.
  • Every flat and hotel room within the tower will have their own internal conservatory space as with 1 Deansgate in Manchester.
  • Keeping the seamless appearance the window cleaning rigs will emerge from the inside of the tower.
  • The building tapers in at the bottom to provide uninterrupted views from Waterloo of London Bridge Tower which should fit right between it and Kings Reach Tower.
  • The top of the tower will contain a viewing platform open to the public.
