EcoWorld Ballymore launches 12 penthouses at Wardian London

Developer unveils a dozen top-end top-floor apartments with a botanical bent

EcoWorld Ballymore is launching a dozen penthouses at its botanically-themed Docklands development Wardian London today.

The marquee units sit between floors 50 and 55 of the two Glenn Howells Architects-designed towers, which have rather imaginatively taken their cue from the Wardian case – the 19th Century brainchild of Dr Nathaniel Bagshaw Ward that revolutionised the transportation of exotic plants across the globe.

Communal spaces at the scheme, which include an atrium and rainforest-inspired private outdoor swimming pool, will be furnished with over 100 different species of flora, and residents are even provided with their own in-house landscaping service.

Other amenities include a 25m open air swimming pool, gym, cinema, two restaurants, a 24-hour concierge and a rooftop observatory.

Priced from £1.85m, the penthouse options include four three-bed and four two-bed apartments in the West Tower, along with three two-bed and one three-bed units in the East Tower.
