The Atlas Building, 145 City Road, London

Providing Executive Architect services to Rocket Investments, Design Delivery Unit is developing upon Make's concept design and delivering this 40-storey residential tower. The development, located on a prominent central London site near to the Old Street roundabout, also incorporates a 10-storey commercial tower. Retail space is provided at ground floor levels set within a high quality public plaza. The buildings are served by a basement that includes parking whilst the residential tower contains leisure and spa facilities. Its location on a constrained site which sits directly over underground railway lines, has led to the generation of a complex structural solution to the residential tower. Design Delivery Unit’s brief is to optimise the layouts of 300 apartments and develop the concept design for this striking development that will be a highly visible addition to the London skyline.
