In Greek mythology, the Titan Atlas was condemned to bear the sky on his shoulders for all eternity. In modern London, The Atlas Building merely reaches into the heavens – at 152 metres it will be the tallest residential tower in the City once fully completed in 2019.

Situated on City Road, moments from Old Street station, the location is one of the most desirable in London. The building itself isn’t too shabby, either: designed by award-winning architecture practice MAKE, its eye-catching structure is formed out of nine architectural blades and will stand out even amid the crowded London skyline.

There will be more than 302 apartments and penthouses across 38 floors, so plenty of options of choose from. Approximately 80% of the building is sold – if you want to move into one of London’s hottest new developments you can’t afford to hang around much longer.

The Atlas Building offers an extensive range of amenities for residents

Apartments range in size from 538sq ft for a one-bedroom to 1,604sq ft for a three-bedroom home. Each apartment comes with its own balcony or terrace, ensuring you’ll be able to enjoy some fresh air, as well as the stunning views of London.

Naturally, the Atlas Building offers an extensive range of amenities for residents, including a gym, spa and swimming pool, cinema room, 24-hour concierge and security, and private residents lounge.

Residents are due to move in next summer. Make sure you’re among them. 

Prices for a two-bedroom apartment start at £1,037,000. For more info, see: theatlasbuilding.com
