The New Bondway scheme was sold by a joint venture between Citygrove and McLaren and was the first UK purchase for the Dubai-based luxury tower specialist.

Designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox, the 50-storey tower at 69-71 Bondway comprises 450 flats alongside offices and retail units.

Lambeth Council had granted planning permission for the tower in 2014.
