(15 Sep 2021) UOL recently completed One Bishopsgate Plaza, an integrated development in London’s historic financial district.
The 43-storey project comprises the 237-key Pan Pacific London – the first Pan Pacific hotel in the United Kingdom; The Sky Residences, which comprises 160 luxury apartments above the hotel from level 21 to 41; and the historical 144-year old Devonshire Row, which has been refurbished to offer two floors of offices and retail shops.
One Bishopsgate Plaza is located in the City of London, adjacent to Liverpool Street station on Crossrail’s Elizabeth line.
Liam Wee Sin, UOL Group Chief Executive, said, “One Bishopsgate Plaza is an integrated development that involves the construction of a 43-storey tower and the conservation of a heritage building within a modern development, in the heart of the City of London. The project overcame challenges caused by Brexit and COVID19. The successful completion of One Bishopsgate Plaza, the opening of Pan Pacific London and the encouraging sales of residential units are a testament to the dedication and hard work of the entire team.”
Apartments at The Sky Residences range from 580 sq ft for a one-bedroom unit to 1,632 sq ft for a three-bedroom. The apartments offer stunning views of some of London’s most iconic landmarks including the River Thames, The Gherkin and St Paul’s Cathedral. To date, about 27% or 43 units have been sold to both UK residents and overseas buyers at an average price of above £2,000 psf.
Residents of The Sky Residences can relax in the bar or take time out in the library, which are accessible to them only. There is a 24-hour dedicated concierge service, private club room for socialising, meeting rooms and a communal terrace at level 34 offering views across the city.
Residents will also have access to the Pan Pacific London’s range of amenities including a gym, sauna, steam rooms, swimming pool, business suite, and room service. The hotel also features a choice of meeting and event spaces along with a double-height ballroom, the first dedicated ballroom within London’s Square Mile that can host banquets for up to 370 guests.
Mr Liam noted that One Bishopsgate Plaza will anchor UOL’s investments in London, which include two other commercial buildings in London’s midtown area, “One Bishopsgate Plaza is part of our vision to strategically cement our presence in UK and open new possibilities within the region in the coming years,” he said.
