Other Information

  • The reason this tower looks so similar to Tower 42 is they both share the same architect, the late Richard Seifert with the emerging concrete core on the roof, and the vertical stainless steel stripes over brown cladding.
  • As of 2009 Kings Reach Tower was currently empty, following the departure of IPC Media. It was due for a major reclad but this plan was put on hold.
  • The rebuilding of Kings Reach Tower, now called South Bank Tower, saw topping out of the extended 155 metre tall structure on the 23rd of September 2014.
