The Olympic Way building beside Wembley Stadium in London is a mixed-use development of the highest quality, delivering much needed housing and amenity provision to the area. Designed in two phases, a 20-storey modular-built tower, above a 7-storey block of condominiums.

Pinnacle Tower is the second tallest modular building in London and offers spectacular views of Wembley Stadium and beyond. This luxury contemporary development comprises 131 new homes, including studios, 1- and 2-bedroom flats and 2/3-bedroom duplex penthouses. There’s a central courtyard area, generous balconies, and far-reaching views across the London skyline.

Pinnacle Tower - London - APA Facade Systems

The Challenge

The vibrant, busy streets surrounding Olympic Way, often transports thousands of fans to Wembley Stadium, which brings with it huge amounts of noise pollution.

The biggest challenge faced by the architects was to discover an economical solution to block out the noise and improving the internal acoustics of the building.

Our designers came up with the perfect cost-effective solution. The flexibility of our window systems meant that the ST80 window, our highest performing at the time, could be installed on the first 8 storeys.

Our ST70 window was then installed for the remaining 12 storeys when the acoustic requirements weren’t as demanding.

Our profiles have identical sightlines, meaning the aesthetic appearance of the building wasn’t affected. This provided an aesthetically pleasing finish throughout the 20 storeys.

About Olympic Way

Pinnacle Tower is a flagship development designed and located for the very best of urban living. The innovative penthouses have stunning views of Wembley Stadium and direct access to transport links leading all over London. The condominiums are state of the art, hand crafted for contemporary living. 

The bustle of Olympic Way, the awe-inspiring iconic Wembley Arch and the thrill of the world-famous Stadium, all right on your doorstep.

Situated between Greenwich Street and Washington Street, the existing building at 60-74 Gansevoort Street has been refurbished and extended. The full project, at 46-74 Gansevoort Street, is expected to feature roughly 100,000 square feet of retail space. 

Aurora Capital Associate and William Gottlieb Real Estate are the developers for this project. 60 – 74 Gansevoort has been beautifully preserved and extended by BKSK Architects, keeping the historic style of the meatpacking district, while adding a modern twist.

60-74 Gansevoort - APA Facade Systems

The Meatpacking District

Over the past 20 years, the Meatpacking District in New York has been transformed into one of the most vibrant, upmarket destinations in the city. It is full of historical architecture and contemporary structures.

Fashion designers, architects, artists, restaurateurs, world-renowned stylists and corporate headquarters have moved in alongside the existing meatpacking plants.

It is situated near the High Line. A 1.45-mile-long elevated linear park, greenway and rail trail created on an old New York Central Railroad.

The Challenge

The challenges we faced on  60 – 74 Gansevoort was to provide a thermally enhanced window system that could withstand the harsh winter climate of New York. An excellent acoustic performance was also required, to block out noise from the busy Gansevoort district. Aesthetically, the aluminum window systems had to integrate with the historical architecture surrounding the meatpacking district.  

The APA Facade Systems team is committed to excellent environmental practice towards a more sustainable future. Our aluminum glazing profiles are designed and manufactured to conform with industry environmental standards, helping you achieve a silver, gold or platinum LEED certification.

Thermally Enhanced Window System

Our thermally enhanced ST70 Hi window system was chosen for it’s durability, flexability and acoustic values. Picture windows, curved windows and tilt & turn windows were all installed on this project by Diversified Glass and Storefronts, complete with all window jewellery. Our floor to ceiling window system is the perfect solution to increase natural light and provide trickle or purge ventilation.
