A year and a half on from when construction work began, the tallest block in Glasshouse Gardens has reached its peak.

To mark the milestone of the 30 storey tower reaching its full height, a topping out ceremony was held at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park site.

The development, the first to be built in The International Quarter, comprises of two blocks of flats that will deliver a combined 333 homes.

There will be a series of communal areas situated between the two towers, the shorter of which will stand at 17 storeys high, plus space to store cycles.

“With some of the world’s greatest sporting, retail and cultural facilities, residents will have the best of London living on their doorstep.”

The first homes are due to be completed by autumn next year, with all the flats set to be ready for summer 2017.

David Joy, chief executive of LCR, added: “Once the towers are complete next year, new residents will be able to enjoy the benefits of living in one of the best connected and exciting locations in the capital – as London’s centre of gravity moves east.”

Just four one-bedroom homes remain for sale at Glasshouse Gardens.

Prices range from £463,000 to £478,000.
