The Sky Residences Launch in Asia
This October, UOL Group Limited (UOL), one of Singapore’s leading public-listed companies with total assets of USD$15 billion, is launching its maiden project The Sky Residences at One Bishopsgate Plaza, a new development in the heart of the City of London. The residences will be showcased across five Asian markets from mid-October.
One Bishopsgate Plaza will be the first tower development located in the City to harmoniously fuse private apartments with a luxury hotel. The landmark address will combine the 160-unit The Sky Residences (from level 21 to 41) with Europe’s first Pan Pacific hotel, which will offer residents exclusive access to its five-star amenities, designed by internationally renowned Yabu Pushelberg (behind Park Hyatt and Four Seasons, New York).
The Sky Residences is a collection of one, two and three bedroom apartments, which 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 commented:" 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 added: “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."
A new public plaza will be created around the entrance of the building, providing a welcome gateway into One Bishopsgate Plaza. Forming part of the wider development, a rooftop restaurant concept and exciting retail will sit behind a restored, Grade-II listed façade on Devonshire Row, bringing a new destination for residents, hotel guests and city workers.
London favourite’s SUSHISAMBA City and Duck & Waffle are located next door, The Ned, City Social and Nobu are within a short stroll and the much-anticipated Eataly will open on the same street in 2020. Vibrant hubs for art and culture are also situated nearby, including Barbican Centre, Guildhall Art Gallery and Museum of London are also situated nearby, including Barbican Centre, Guildhall Art Gallery and Museum of London.

The concrete structure at One Bishopsgate Plaza has now reached level 11, reports architect MSMR.
The rapid progress is due in part to the pre-cast concrete columns being manufactured off-site and then craned into position on the post-tensioned concrete slab that is cast in situ.
MSMR is the interior architect designing the residential element and delivery architects for the hotel.
