One The Elephant

One the Elephant is part of the Elephant Park regeneration project. It comprises a 37-storey residential tower connected by a single-storey raised courtyard into a four-storey pavilion building. The ground floor of the pavilion building is allocated predominantly to retail units and commercial office space, but also includes back-of-house facilities.

The ground floor of the tower houses the residential lobby entrance, a communal space, a bike store, and back-of-house facilities. A single level basement sits beneath (and in places beyond) the building foot print, and accommodates 45 car parking spaces and MEP plant areas.

The tower is a reinforced concrete framed structure with a single reinforced concrete stability core and flat plate concrete slabs supported on blade columns. The typical floor plate (L2 – L28) contains eight residential apartments with a total gross floor area circa 630m2 per storey. Every apartment includes a cantilevered balcony. Transfer structures at Levels 29, 35 and 36 enable larger apartment and penthouse suites above Level 29.
