Designed by architects Foster + Partners, Principal Tower, in Shoreditch, Hackney, will feature 301 residential apartments upon completion early next year.

At 162 metres tall and equalling 35,400 square metres, it will be one of London’s tallest residential buildings.

Principal Tower complies with the Code for Sustainable Homes Level 4, and SWISSPACER ULTIMATE featured in the highly energy efficient façade.

SWISSPACER is ideal for sealed units of all sizes as it is tried and tested to give incredible thermal performance and long-lasting results.

It is popular for oversized sealed units because of its rigid structure, precise edges and clean, crisp parallel lines.
