A London Docklands tower is set to house the highest restaurant in Europe when it is completed, it was revealed today.
UK leisure property agency, Shelley Sandzer, has been hired to find a tenant for the rooftop of Arena Tower, Baltimore Wharf, an iconic landmark just 10 minutes’ walk from Canary Wharf.
When an operator is found, it will involve transporting commercial kitchen equipment up to the 43rd and 44th levels of the building. The space comprises approximately 6,000 square feet in total.
Both floors will feature large outdoor terraces and level 44 will be set back from impressive double height windows offering diners stunning views of the city.
The restaurant, which will be at the top of the 450 foot high tower, is located amongst extensive residential development, providing a catchment of customers on the doorstep.
Approximately 6,000 units are under construction in the immediate vicinity, including almost 400 flats situated within the building, of which 99% have sold out in advance.
Landlords Galliard Homes, Frogmore and O’Shea brought in Shelly Sandzer due to its track record of signing big brands in flagship sites.
“Their work on securing UK debut sites for the likes of Sushi Samba in Heron Tower and Duddell’s in London Bridge indicated they were the best team to have on board with this project,” said Ben Fitzherbert of Frogmore.
The company is also known for its role in helping to launch new entrants and unique concepts to the market, such as Patty & Bun, Duck & Waffle, Honey & Smoke and Xtend Barre.
