Facts

  • Ontario Tower is the tallest riverside residential building in London.
  • The elliptical floorplate tapers towards a point at the front of the building.
  • Thanks to the elliptical design, many apartments feature curved, floor-to-ceiling sheets of glass offering panoramic views.
  • The design both commemorates the tall industrial chimneys that were once such a feature of this part of London and evokes the funnels of the transatlantic liners that used to pass the building on their way into or out of London.
  • The top of the building forms a 30° elliptical plane from the 24th story to the top of the tower, with the plane finished off with a blue neon rim.
