LONDON | Manhattan Loft Gardens | 143m | 42 fl | U/C

Manhattan Loft Gardens, London

Published on 12-09-2012 by Skyscrapernews.com


A Look At Manhattan Loft Gardens. Copyright Holder - Hayes Davidson

The 2012 was promised to have a regenerative effect on Stratford in east London. It's too soon to tell the extent of that but one company that's certainly betting it'll be the case is high-end developer, the Manhattan Loft Corporation.

Marketing on the scheme has begun with the developer asking an hitherto unprecedented £860,000 for a two bedroom apartment in Stratford, a sum of money that would be unimaginable for the area only a few months ago.

Of course the building might have something to do with it - the scheme is a double cantilevered tower designed by Skidmore Owings and Merrill that promises some of the best quality residential apartments in London.
From the piazza that connects with Stratford International Station, the railway hub that Deutsche Bahn are aiming at running services to, entry to the building is through a triple height lobby aimed by the architects as not only being an entrance but a community hub.

Above this, the apartments themselves are split into 13 different configurations with heavy involvement from Paris-based interior architecture firm, Studio KO. An emphasis is placed on creating internal height within, including double height living areas and floor to ceiling glazing.

The cantilevers of the building aren't just for show but to create spaces that can be used as gardens for the residents to enjoy. Should you desire you'll be able to book one and hold an al-fresco dinner party for you and your friends. Residents will also be able to enjoy the services of the hotel that takes up part of the building, including a quick dip in the pool and a rooftop bar to guzzle cocktails in.

To enjoy this sort of living standard however you can expect to pay about £800 per square foot for an average apartment in the scheme, over twice the going rate for the area. Those with pockets deep enough will be able to move in once construction of the 42-floor tower is finished in 2016.

That's what I thought when I clicked the button. Not that I'm disappointed, but I'd never expect this thread is about a London investment.

The facade has an amazing effect. Can't wait to see if this works as great when it's finished.

Quite a new design for London, looks very modern. The terraces look very similiar to the highline on Manhattan.

Historic coverage on the international forum for individual London projects has been lacklustre at best. However this doesn't mean we can't improve and be on equal footing with other world capitals.
