A Life Of Luxury: Great New London Apartment Developments

Looking for a perfect London base?

As the capital of this fair old United Kingdom and one of the most important cities in the world, London’s fantastic selection of properties – both residential and commercial – shouldn't come as all that much of a surprise. In the past couple of years alone we’ve seen a slew of spectacularly designed office buildings constructed. The likes of The Shard – designed by Renzo Piano and currently the UK’s largest building, Heron Tower – with its incredible spire, and Broadgate Tower – modernistic in its design and clad in glass, have attracted the attentions of locals and tourists alike.

However, as well as large offices, the city has also seen the construction of buildings featuring luxurious London apartments. The $1.15 billion One Hyde Park development has already attracted some of the world’s wealthiest property buyers, and boasts the lavish interior design work of Candy & Candy.

But aside from the One Hyde Park development, where else could one look to find spectacular London apartments? We've singled out just a few of the amazing options currently (or soon to be) available on the market.

NEO Bankside

Rather than just the one building, NEO Bankside is made up of four hexagonally-shaped structures, which in total feature 217 London apartments. The eye-catching exterior is all the work of architects Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners. Those lucky enough to occupy a property at the development will have access to secure underground parking, a business centre, private landscaped gardens, and, its crowning glory, a resident’s leisure club.

Situated on the South Bank, residents also get to benefit from being able to see the very of best of the city’s skyline from their London apartments. Although it’s only recently been completed, this apartment building is already making quite a name for itself as a multiple award-winner.


Another development that can (or at least will be able to once it’s completed) offer an enviable view of London’s array of landmarks, Riverwalk is made up of two apartment blocks; however, these apartment blocks are connected. It’s situated in Westminster; and as with NEO Bankside, residents of these London apartments get access to a whole host of additional facilities. Amongst them is a gym, complete with a separate studio for Pilates and yoga workouts, and a cafĂ© overlooking the river Thames.

One Tower Bridge

One Tower Bridge is an appealing option for those looking to live and breathe the City of London and all it has to offer. If you were to step out from one of its many London apartments you’d find yourself within walking distance of many of the capital’s gems – restaurants, arts galleries, museums and monuments.

Its London apartments sit on the South Bank of the river Thames. Each apartment oozes sophistication and class; evoking the aesthetic of the very best boutique hotels. They include underfloor heating, economically-designed kitchens, and Smart Home technology. Residents can step out from their apartment onto terraces and balconies that overlook the city. Buyers also get the option to tailor the finish of their apartment to suit their personal preferences.
