One of the last remaining relics on the South Bank amid new developments such as the London Eye, the original 1970s South Bank Tower, previously known as King’s Reach Tower, has now been transformed into luxury residential accommodation, office and retail space.
Now 42 storeys, the tower offers amazing views across the London skyline and boasts 193 luxury apartments. There is more than 340,000 square metres of offices, 65,000 square metres of retail space, a 25 metre long swimming pool, a communal roof terrace, residents' lounge, gym, screening room and business lounge. The project overcame significant technical challenges and required close alignment between us and our supply chain.
The conversion of the development, from office to residential use, has required extensive cut and carve work and the building used what was at the time, the highest temporary external staircase and tallest tower crane in London.
