Project managed the close out of this vast mixed-use project close to Tower Bridge in London, including spearheading the build-out of the Health Club and The Business Center, as well assisting the development leadership team in the financial re-structuring of the project over a five-year period. The Circle is located in the heart of Shad Thames, south east London just steps from the River Thames. The area, known for its riverside bars and restaurants, provides easy access into The City and has excellent links to Canary Wharf and the West End. The project comprises two mainly residential buildings either side of Queen Elizabeth Street. They follow the back-of-pavement line except for a huge central intervention on Queen Elizabeth Street, where a cylindrical space creates two semicircular forecourts serving the two apartment entrance halls and car park entrances. The emerging street elevations respond to their London stock brick warehouse neighbors, but here the metal windows are finished in light gold, the parapets undulate and balconies are bracketed on pine logs.
