Property of the week: Reaching the dizzy heights of luxurious living

July 20, 2018

The new 50-storey gem is about to be risen in Nine Elms, London, with the support and glamour of the Italian fashion brand Versace. Aykon One will be the first fashion labelled tower of London to lure all those who love to live lavishly every moment



The Versace brand is responsible for the interior design of the building with the well-known Greek key, the brand’s trademark ornating the walls, furniture, and carpets of every apartment. As a last touch of luxury, all the chandeliers are gold plated filigree and all the bathrooms are decorated with white marble.



The building work for the tower started on August 2017. The cost of the development is calculated at £240 million and it is estimated to be completed in 2020. Nevertheless, 170 out of its 360 apartments are already sold, especially those with a river view. Buyers’ nationality and age vary, with only 11 British buyers so far, as the tower’s marketing was mostly targeted to foreign buyers.



The location of the Versace tower is very attractive to the public and potential buyers, as it is situated on Zone 1, it has very easy access to embassies and Mayfair that are just across the river. The privileged residents will be also able to enjoy numerous amenities inside the building, such as in-house dining, a concierge, swimming pool, and spa. Finally, a children’s playroom will be available, with a double-height slide and of course designer chairs and carpet.

For those interested in investing in this premium real estate, prices vary, from £747,000 for a studio flat, one bedroom apartments start from £1,116,000 and the two bedroom ones from £1,877,000. As expected, the higher the level the greater the price, with a top floor duplex reaching the heart pinching £13 million.
