Serviced by Europe’s First Pan Pacific Hotel
HONG KONG, Nov. 12, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — UOL Group Limited (UOL), one of Singapore’s leading public-listed companies with total assets of USD$15 billion, launches its maiden project The Sky Residences at One Bishopsgate Plaza, a new development in the heart of the City of London.
A truly international offering, One Bishopsgate Plaza will be the first tower development located in the City to harmoniously fuse private apartments with a luxury hotel. The landmark address combines the 160-unit The Sky Residences with Europe’s first Pan Pacific hotel, which will offer residents exclusive access to its five-star amenities, designed by internationally renowned Yabu Pushelberg (behind Park Hyatt and Four Seasons, New York).
The Sky Residences at One Bishopsgate Plaza offers a rare opportunity to live in the historic heart of London’s famous Square Mile. The development has the luxury of international transport hubs on its doorstep. Liverpool Street Underground Station is just a two-minute walk away, with fast connections to the Eurostar, London City Airport and Heathrow Airport.
The Sky Residences at One Bishopsgate Plaza
The Sky Residences – a collection of one, two and three bedroom apartments – uniquely start at level 21 and extend upwards, to ensure every home benefits from panoramic views of the city and beyond. Designed by PLP Architecture, the 41- storey building has been crafted to the height of sophistication, expansive glass panes and striking steel column ensures the tower’s exterior design stands tall against the skyline.
Every aspect of the building has been carefully considered to optimise light and space, with many of the apartments featuring double aspect and full-height glazing, to truly provide residents a home in the sky. The Sky Residences epitomises contemporary luxury living, instilling the feeling of being within a private gallery with views of some of London’s most iconic landmarks including the River Thames, Tower Bridge, The Gherkin and St Paul’s Cathedral.
Each apartment encompasses the luxury of a hotel suite, with the warmth of a one-of-a-kind home. A dedicated resident amenity floor at Level 20 provides a sanctuary of calm across a private lounge and bar, library and meeting room together with a dedicated residential concierge. A sky terrace on Level 34 offers an unrivalled vista of London’s best landmarks. Additional benefits include the range of superior amenities throughout the hotel, a swimming pool, gymnasium, restaurant and bar.
Jesline Goh, Chief Investment and Asset Officer, UOL said: “UOL has earned a reputation for developing award-winning projects like PARKROYAL on Pickering, Pan Pacific Orchard and Avenue South Residence in Singapore. This time, we are proud to be adding yet another iconic project, One Bishopsgate Plaza to the London city skyline in a highly coveted location, which will raise the bar of integrated development and city living with unparalleled five-star hospitality services.”
Penny Cameron, Residential Development Director, Stanhope said: “We are excited to be bringing the residences of One Bishopsgate Plaza to the Asian marketplace for the first time. One Bishopsgate Plaza provides a truly unique proposition to live in this exclusive pocket of London. Residents can benefit from a thriving lifestyle on their doorstep, yet find respite from the hustle and bustle in their home in the sky and in the five-star hotel offering too. We’re proud to be part of this first for Pan Pacific and UOL in London and Europe.”
Established, Vibrant Lifestyle On Your Doorstep
A new public plaza will be created around the entrance of the building, providing a welcome gateway into One Bishopsgate Plaza. Forming part of the wider development, a rooftop restaurant concept and exciting retail will sit behind a restored, Grade-II listed facade on Devonshire Row, bringing a new destination for residents, hotel guests and city workers.
One Bishopsgate Plaza is perfectly positioned to take advantage of its prized location. Some of the capital’s finest restaurants, private member’s clubs and luxury retail are just a few minutes’ walk away.
London favourite’s SUSHISAMBA City and Duck & Waffle are located next door, The Ned, City Social and Nobu are within a short stroll and the much-anticipated Eataly will open on the same street in 2020. Vibrant hubs for art and culture are also situated nearby, including Barbican Centre, Guildhall Art Gallery and Museum of London.
Unrivalled Location Perfectly Connected For International Travel
The Sky Residences at One Bishopsgate Plaza has excellent connectivity to international transport hubs. Liverpool Street Underground Station is just a two-minute walk away, with fast connections to the Eurostar, London City Airport and Heathrow Airport.
Residents will be able to easily reach the lively entertainment of the West End and the architecturally striking King’s Cross regeneration within ten minutes. The arrival of Crossrail in 2021 will further enhance connectivity for residents.
