London property developer Manhattan Loft Corporation has selected Bouygues UK for the construction of Manhattan Loft Gardens, a 143-metre landmark tower in Stratford, East London.
The 42-storey tower will include 248 apartments above a 150 room hotel, a spa, a triple-height lobby and two restaurants.
Manhattan Loft Gardens will be located next to Stratford International Station. The company says it will play a key role in the regeneration of the area.
The tower is designed by architects Skidmore, Owings & Merrill (SOM), who have previously designed the One World Trade Centre in New York and the interiors of the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, the tallest building in the world.
The London tower will feature two cantilevers which support three sky gardens offering unobstructed views across London.
Harry Handelsman, CEO of Manhattan Loft Corporation, said: "Our appointment of Bouygues, with its vast international knowledge and experience of high-rise luxury developments, will add to our already top class project team.
"Manhattan Loft Gardens will continue the Olympic legacy by becoming Europe’s most exciting residential/hotel tower."
Works began on the project earlier this year, and is due to be completed in spring 2018.
