Known for its sky-high designs, the SOM ‘Manhattan Loft Garden’ is a 42-storey skyscraper that overlooks the magnificent London cityscape. The proposed building is planned to be built near the Stratford station, overlooking the Olympic park.

The towering condo will not only contain residential apartments, but also a luxury hotel, spa, two restaurants and three rooftop gardens -- talk about grand. The lofty building will become the area’s tallest building, which is a feat this design firm has notable experience with; SOM is the architect behind the world’s current tallest building in Burj Khalifa. The elevated design will reach a staggering 135 meters tall, which is the same height as the famed London Eye. One thing they can guarantee is the view will be without a doubt breathtaking.

The SOM ‘Manhattan Loft Garden’ brings the Big Apple aesthetic to the bustling city of London -- just in time for Olympic fever.
