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. One Bishopsgate Plaza 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. The Sky Residences also includes a dedicated resident amenity floor at Level 20 providing 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 will offer 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 to the London city skyline with yet another iconic project One Bishopsgate Plaza in a coveted and plum 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."
