Mirax-Beetham London (Jumeirah Tower)-London-Ian Simpson Architects
1 Blackfriars Road, Southwark SE1
Architect: Ian Simpson Architects
Developer: Beetham Organization
Originally proposed at 69-storeys/220m, this has now been reduced in height, and the footprint has been shrunk.The building will taper in at the bottom to provide uninterrupted views from Waterloo of London Bridge Tower,which should fit right between it and Kings Reach Tower. It will stand in a very prominent location, and a public viewing gallery will be located on the top 2 floors,offering stunning views across the capital. The building will feature a 6-star hotel and luxury apartments, each with their own internal conservatory space as with 1 Deansgate in Manchester.
