Developing one of the tallest residential buildings in London
Strata is a new build, 43 storey tower located at Elephant and Castle and is one of the tallest residential buildings in London. The tower comprises of a 5 storey pavilion, a basement extension, a ground level landscape piazza, retail facilities and 408 apartments, home to more than 1,000 residents.

The Strata tower is one of the first buildings in the world to incorporate wind turbines as part of its structure. The 9 metre turbines at the top of the building are rated at 19 kW each and are anticipated to produce a combined 50MWh of electricity per year. They are expected to generate sufficient energy to provide power for the common areas of the building.
