Development of the Month

The One Blackfriars development is regenerating a key site on Blackfriars Road in Southwark, previously unoccupied for more than a decade.

Due for completion in 2018, One Blackfriars will comprise:

  • 274 new homes
  • 161 bedroom boutique hotel
  • 14,000 sq ft of retail space
  • 888m² of landscaped space, including a new public piazza

Did you know..

  • The concept for the One Blackfriars tower was envisaged by architect Ian Simpson over 15 years ago, inspired by the Lansetti II glass vase by Finnish artist Timo Sarpaneva
  • 9,126 panes of glass will be installed on the inner and outer façades (13 times the number used on the Louvre.)
  • 80 miles of underfloor heating pipework is being installed (equivalent of London to Cambridge.)
  • On a clear day, you will be able to see more than 28 miles from the top floor of the tower
  • It will take 8 million hours to complete One Blackfriars
