New Heights For Douglass Tower

London property developer Ballymore has launched Douglass Tower at its Goodluck Hope development on Leamouth Peninsula. Standing at the gateway to London on the River Thames, Douglass Tower, 30 storeys high, will transform the skyline of East London, bringing new heights to the area’s premier waterside address.  

Douglass Tower is a testament to the work of the civil engineer and prolific lighthouse designer Sir James Douglass, whose designs came to life along the banks of the River Thames

Designed by architects Allies and Morrison, Douglass Tower shares Goodluck Hope’s industrial aesthetic which is unusual in a building of such height with bold lines and colours complementing the chic modern interiors of its apartments. The design approach maximises use of space and natural light in each home.  

Innovation is central to Ballymore’s creative ethos and is reflected by the flexible division of interior space throughout the Tower’s 1, 2 and 3 bedroom apartments, such that custom glass and metal panels can be moved to form contemporary Winter Gardens. Tailored to residents’ unique lifestyles, these Winter Gardens can be closed off to form a study space, a discrete area for dining and entertaining, or simply to take advantage of the light and open sky all year round.

A selection of Douglass Tower suites, 1 bed, 2 bed and 3 bed river apartments and lofts with views over the river and city are available from £395,000.  

Entertainment options in the development include a 24 hour concierge, a 25 metre swimming pool, Scandinavian style steam room, fully equipped gym with studios and weight room, a business centre, a private cinema and a restaurant with panoramic river views across the capital. 

Goodluck Hope is a new riverside neighbourhood comprising of 804 homes located directly on the River Thames at the historic Leamouth Peninsula. Surrounded by water on three sides, the development is defined by its rich maritime heritage and cultural history.

Commenting on the launch of Douglass Tower, John Mulryan, Group Managing Director of Ballymore, said: “The building is a landmark feat of design and will transform Goodluck Hope in line with our work at London City Island. Ballymore is committed to preserving the unique heritage of all our development projects and we are excited to welcome new residents who value the cultural environment of the area”.
