North Thames Regional Group Annual General Meeting and One Blackfriars

One Blackfriars is an iconic landmark mixed-use development situated on the south side of Blackfriars Bridge overlooking the River Thames. The centrepiece of the development is a stunning 170m tower, a geometric masterpiece which creates an elegant silhouette on London’s skyline.

The 50-storey tower accommodates 274 homes, a private viewing lounge and a multi-level penthouse crowned within the glass rooftop structure. The scheme also features a boutique hotel, retail and gym in the adjoining buildings. The entire development is built over a three storey basement structure housing swimming pool and spa, private cinema, wine storage and car parking facilities.
