The Berkeley Homes development, on the corner of Long Lane and Tabard Street behind St George the Martyr Church, has a a landmark barometer-controlled beacon.

The newly revealed apartments on the tower's fourteenth floor have panoramic views from the Millennium Wheel in the west to the Millennium Dome in the east. The most dramatic view is to the north with the City of London appearing to rise behind a dwarfed Southwark Cathedral with Hampstead in the distance.

The rooms have been furnished with art for the walls chosen by Full Circle Contemporary Art Consultancy based in nearby Flat Iron Yard off Ayres Street. One bedroom has prints by locally-based Jasia Szerszynska who was inspired by her study of leaves and seeds whilst living in Hong Kong.

Jon Hall of Berkley Homes, welcoming guests to the launch, said: "Tabard Square is a unique development so it is only fitting that we created a number of show apartments that befitted the scheme.

"We have installed two traditional show apartments, albeit with a designer twist, to illustrate how the fourteenth floor apartments can function as contemporary homes.

"However, our decision to work with Full Circle Contemporary Art Consultancy on the other two apartments shows our commitment to supporting local ventures. We are are pleased to provide a showcase for up and coming artists."

Prices for apartments on the fourteenth floor start from 375,000. The floor, reached from the reception in Long Lane, can be viewed 10am-6pm (weekends 5pm; Tue 8pm).
