Southbank Place Continues to Thrive with Completion of 30 Casson Square
One of London’s premier developments, Southbank Place, a joint venture project by Qatari Diar and Canary Wharf Group, has reached a major milestone with the completion of prominent residential tower, 30 Casson Square. The striking stone-clad building, designed by esteemed architects Squire & Partners, is one of the most popular residences at the development, with only eight of the 166 available apartments remaining on the market.
Commenting on the completion of 30 Casson Square, Richard Oakes, Sales & Marketing Director, Europe, Qatari Diar Real Estate Investment Company said: “The completion of 30 Casson Square is an important milestone for Southbank Place, as the development nears to being fully opened. Due to its prime location and unrivalled views across London, 30 Casson Square has been one of our most popular buildings since we launched the development.”
Brian De’ath, Director of Residential Sales at Canary Wharf Group added, “Following the successful completion of Belvedere Gardens in 2019, we’re excited to welcome more new residents to Southbank Place. Occupying such a significant section of the South Bank the culture created by those living, working and visiting here will make it an even more attractive proposition.”
First launching in 2016, 30 Casson Square comprises a mixture of studio, one, two and three-bedroom apartments, with prices for the remaining units ranging from £2.2 million to £7.75 million. Adjacent to the iconic Shell Tower, the 29-storey building benefits from direct aspects onto the River Thames, London Eye and Houses of Parliaments, as well as views of the City, the Shard and St. Paul’s Cathedral.
Inspired by leading interior specialists, Johnson Naylor, each apartment has been designed and laid out to create calm, yet contemporary apartments, with an emphasis on maximising the natural light and spectacular views through full-length windows.
