Dollar Bay, Docklands
A four-storey penthouse, the jewel in the crown atop a new tower in the Docklands, went on sale at the foot of South Dock. The bay is named after American naval officers who would throw dollar bills to dockers to thank them for their hospitality during WWII. The 31 storey tower, designed by the same architects behind the One Blackfriars tower on the south bank, is surrounded on three sides by land that can’t be developed. The three bedroom, 3,000sqft penthouse sits atop 115 studio to three bedroom apartments and 30 planned basement parking spaces.
