Developer Mount Anvil has revealed plans for a 36-storey residential tower in the ‘Silicon Roundabout’ area of Islington.
The firm hopes to start on site in April 2012 on the £160 million scheme at 261 City Road, near Angel Station in London.
The tower was designed by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill Architects and is being developed by Mount Anvil in conjunction with housing provider Affinity Sutton.
Mount Anvil chief executive Killian Hurley said: “We aim to capture all the excitement and buzz surrounding the businesses and people working and investing in Silicon Roundabout.
“Our scheme will reflect this energy and creativity through bold, innovative design. We are confident that the penthouses will be selling at £1,500 per sq ft, setting new price levels for high-rise living in the area. This will be the ultimate city apartment in a dazzling tower.”
