Focchi Project: Owen Street Towers

Residential Development

Four residential towers providing ca. 1500 apartments and exclusive penthouses, some featuring private winter gardens. The scheme will incorporate high end residents' facilities as 25m swimming pool, indoor tennis court, 1,900 sq ft gymnasium, Leisure Suite, dedicated resident’s lounges and relaxation areas. There will also be a “Residents Only” rooftop garden with private bar and catering facilities. 

Storeys: 39-66 

The main tower, at more than 200m in height, will be the tallest building in the UK outside London and only second tallest building behind the Shard. 

The developments design is visually very green due to the large amount of landscaped public space and residents gardens. Renaker Build Ltd plans to continue this environmental focus with eco-friendly solutions such as biomass technology, solar energy and the re-introduction of the ground source heat pump.
