one tower bridge

November 2016

One Tower Bridge is a brand new, award winning development designed and developed by an award-winning architect and developer.

The prestigious Berkeley Homes development is located in one of the most iconic spots in the capital, on the riverfront between City Hall and the Thames’ flamboyant Grade I listed Tower Bridge. Neighbours include a checklist of symbolic central London landmarks – the Tower of London, Cheesegrater and The Gherkin among them.

Over 400 luxury apartments of outstanding design have been created, alongside 80,000 sq ft. of retail, leisure and cultural space. Superb 5* facilities include a 20m black and gold tiled swimming pool, state of the art gymnasium, fitness & treatment rooms, virtual golf simulator, 24 hour Harrods concierge and secure car parking.

The scheme comprises of nine individual blocks with 3 distinct architectural styles. The ‘transition’ block runs along the river separating the rest of the scheme from more London and the twenty storey Campanile [Italian bell tower], which acts as another focal point along the Southbank. The natural stone and glass ‘finger blocks’ encasing the first-floor residents gar- den, cloaking what will be London’s newest 900 seat theatre, reflect a more modern architecture. Finally, the English bond brickwork blocks with their raking timber balconies knitting the scheme in to the more traditional Shad Thames style of design. These buildings step down in scale towards Tower Bridge Road and a new pedestrian route, Duchess Walk, have been created to maximise views through the site from Tooley Street to Tower Bridge.
