Wow GREAT FOR LONDON! Futuristic design.




NB: The tower is little to wide according to its height. The tower must be a bit higher +/-200m.

Are those things at the top of the building electricity generators? If so that's so Eco-friendly...

Great clad! Even on such a 'small' project, London once again show off with a terrific design and a wonderful quality for the outside elements.

I'm still wondering why they build a luxury residential tower in the middle of this poor area, surrounded by ugly grey buildings. Really hope that they'll get rid of these old blocks next to it.

Strata is great though....

Because this is the first of 2 or 3 towers in the 120-150m range and part of a much larger £1.5 Billion regeneration of that part of London...

You've got to start somewhere right?....and Strata is that somewhere.

5 Years from now the area will look a whole lot better....(Hopefully).

I would love an apartment on the top floor. Maybe I will be able to grab myself a bargain in this current economic crisis...*wishful thinking*

I wouldn't mind living there, but then I'd be living in a great high-rise...in the middle of a dilapidated dumping ground.
I'd much rather go for the Landmark...or maybe even the Shard.
