Information about Southbank Tower, 55 Upper Ground, Southwark, London SE1
Southbank Tower is a luxury mixed-use residential development and public realm located on a prominent site on the River Thames adjacent to the iconic Sea Containers House, now home to the Mondrian Hotel.
Located between Upper Ground and Stamford Street, Southbank Tower was initially built in the 1970s as the King's Reach Tower, designed by architect Richard Seifert, built in the Modernist tradition of clean lines, unadorned finishes and light-flooded rooms. The newly remodelled Tower has undergone a significant transformation to become one of the most sought-after addresses in the city and now stands 41 storeys tall and offers 191 luxury studio, one, two, and three-bedroom apartments, penthouses, office, and retail space.
Residents of Southbank Tower can take advantage of a range of on-site five-star lifestyle facilities which draw inspiration from the finest hotels and resorts worldwide, including a 24-hour concierge service, private health and fitness suite, a 20-metre indoor pool, a gym, a spa, a screening room, a business lounge, and a rooftop sky garden. The Tower also features secure underground parking, making it easy for residents to park their cars, and 222 cycle parking spaces.

Additionally, the apartments, designed by Johnson Naylor, are fitted with high-quality finishes and appliances, providing residents with a comfortable and luxurious living experience.
