If you go down to the Thames today you’re sure of a big surprise, for the best apartments that ever there were, have gathered there for certain because, today’s the day that One Tower Bridge goes on the maaaarketttt…
There’s an incredible new development tucked away behind London’s iconic Tower Bridge. Surrounded by grass and water, and slap bang next to the financial district, the development’s extraordinary location on one of London’s last remaining great riverside locations is second to none. The development consists of nine blocks, each with a slightly different feel. Some will have restaurants and bars on the ground floor; others have a single penthouse covering the entire top floor.
We fell in love with everything from the sweeping and grand hallways, to gorgeous marble rainforest showers and bathtubs. One apartment had a glass wall between bathroom and bedroom, which, at the flick of a switch became an opaque glass wall. There were floor to ceiling glass walls and doors onto balconies and all the apartments were laid out to feel spacious and open.
Inspired by the distinctly British character and charm of the Thames Walk location, acclaimed interior designers Casa Forma and Honky have each presented their own London aesthetic in the apartments.
Just as each of the development’s nine blocks is slightly different in character – with variations in architectural styles, size and height to complement the skyline and showcase the magnificent views across the River Thames – the individual apartments all have distinctly different style sensibilities and features, yet each one has perfectly captured the energy, vibrancy and tasteful luxury that are part of living in the capital. The designers have all expressed their personal vision for One Tower Bridge using beautiful bespoke materials and furnishings and original artwork against the interior architects’ strong base palette.
All of the apartments are fully fitted with the finest materials and technology, including Miele integrated appliances, built-in coffee machines, wine coolers and individually designed oak cabinets for the custom-designed ergonomically planned kitchens.
Each apartment has a private balcony, terrace or roof garden, and also features the very latest in integrated Smart Home Technology, allowing residents remote access to adjust the automated blinds and switch on the underfloor heating system or air conditioning as they disembark from a long haul flight, as well as control the state-of-the-art security system. The technology hub also communicates wirelessly with the lift, automatically recognizing residents and delivering them to their floor.
Designed by internationally celebrated architects Squire and Partners, these luxurious one, two, three and four-bedroom apartments and penthouses offer an opportunity to live on the South Bank, right beside London’s iconic landmark – which is marking its 120th anniversary this year – and just a short walk from both the Tower of London and the Shard.
