Principal Tower, London
Multiplex are currently engaged on the enabling works for the Principal Tower Project for joint clients Brookfield Property Partners and Concord Pacific for a 50 storey tower on the border of the City of London and Shoreditch.
The project is a 161m2 luxury tower providing a total of 273 apartments offering exceptional views across London. The tower will provide a mixture of one, two and three bedroom units as well as a duplex penthouse spread over a total of 322,500 sq ft together with 5,000 sq ft of leisure facilities including an indoor swimming pool and gym. On the ground floor there will be a double height foyer (with glass) and a sweeping staircase, together with 2,700 sq ft of retail space, whilst the basement will offer two levels of secure underground parking and cycle facilities. The project also includes two other buildings of shared ownership and social housing, connected by a single storey multi use building.
We are currently working to remove ground obstructions across the site, which has been complex due to the previous industrial usage, including a Victorian power station with a 50m chimney. During the Roman times, this area was the main exit from the City of London and has a rich history as discovered by MOLA.
