f you’re looking for the ultimate luxury address, look no further. Baroque Lifestyle has found it for you – the 57-storey Aykon Tower in London, next to Battersea and overlooking the River Thames, is, according to its creators, “a global symbol of opulence”
This ultra-modern 168-meter high skyscraper on the banks of the Thames is so sought after that every single apartment facing the Thames has already been sold – and it’s not completely built! With interior décor by Versace, these just have to be the most coveted real estate offerings on that side of the pond.
With prices starting at a mere $1.03million for a studio apartment, you know you’re in the right league if you purchase one of the 360 apartments designed by Donatella Versace with her inimitable style, elegance and sensuality. Aside from owning a little slice of designer paradise, apartment buyers also get access to a luxe full-length swimming pool located on the 23rd floor of the building, not to mention a “state-of-the-art” gym and spa, panoramic roof terrace and private cinema, all decorated by the superlative Versace house of design.
According to the developers, DICO UK Property Holdings Ltd, whose claim to fame is that they are owned by DAMAC International, and part-owned by Damac Properties, one of Dubai’s largest construction companies, the Aykon Tower, located on One Nine Elms, offers the ultimate Versace lifestyle – “a fantasy turned into reality”. Well, you have to be able to afford this fantasy, which includes a parking place that will add a further $78 000. Of course, parking your car is not your problem. A concierge and valet service takes care of that.
This stunning new skyscraper, which is expected to be completed by 2020, is located in the riverside district of Vauxhall in London, which was once an impoverished train and bus junction. A cluster of modern, luxury skyscrapers have emerged here already, transforming London’s skyline. Interestingly enough, many prospective owners have no intention of ever living there. Purchasing now (the apartments went on sale last week, 22 July) will secure them a hefty profit, if London’s residential tower-building market goes the way it’s expected to, which is way upwards. With promises of high returns, even if they decide to rent out their profitable purchases, investors are flocking to take advantage.
