Not cheap - but being a resident of one of the 86 flats inside does come with some luxurious extras. The development, which overlooks Hyde Park, gives occupants access to a 21m swimming pool, saunas, a wine cellar and a golf simulator.
And just in case that’s not tempting enough, hotel staff will also be on hand to serve residents 24 hours a day, courtesy of an underground tunnel which connects the building to the Mandarin Oriental Hotel next door.
After four years of planning, it’s the latest project by brothers Nick (who, fact fans, is currently in a relationship with former Neighbours star Holly Valance) and Christian Candy, and it's probably their most ambitious, too. Critics argued at the time that mid-recession was the wrong time for such a project, but property experts say the flats will appeal to international buyers who are also benefitting from the weak pound.
