Providence Tower is not just a new landmark at the heart of the world’s hottest property market, it is also a towering advert for the team that built it.
Building on the Thames, a stone’s throw from Canary Wharf - it’s hard to think of a higher profile location, especially when it includes a 44-storey tower that can be glimpsed from vast swathes of the capital.
New Providence Wharf is a mixed-use project by developers Ballymore and architects Skidmore, Owings & Merrill on an 8.2 acre riverside site. It stretches 400m back from the water and includes a 180-room Radisson Hotel and 1,050 residential units spread over several buildings including the 136-metre high new Providence Tower and the Ontario Tower, two of the tallest residential blocks in the UK.
The 12-storey Providence Tower building offers affordable housing in the form of rented social accommodation and shared ownership apartments as well as a handful of privately owned flats.
