Bouygues to build its first tower in London

Bouygues UK has announced that it is building the £250M Manhattan Loft Gardens tower in London.

Bouygues UK has been officially named as the company chosen to construct the 143m-high Manhattan Loft Gardens in East London, although work has already started.

The 42-storey structure will include two cantilevers which will support three sky gardens, providing views across the capital. It is next to Stratford International Station and is part of the area’s regeneration. Designed by architect Skidmore, Owings & Merrill (SOM), it includes apartments, a hotel, a spa, a triple-height lobby and two restaurants.

The company is working on high-profile projects across London, as it is understood Bouygues has landed the contract to build the controversial £175M Thames Garden Bridge. It is also building the Hallsville Quarter project in the Canning Town district of Newham.

Bouygues Bâtiment International deputy chief executive Madani Sow said: “Bouygues UK teams will be fully committed to turning this innovative vision into reality. Technical prowess and architectural quality will combine to produce a building that will be greatly appreciated by its future users.”

The tower is due to be completed in Spring 2018.
