Oakwood is a 40 storey building, comprising 392 serviced apartments.

"The conceptual design for this 40-storey hotel has been shaped by the history of the local area, which has been predominantly industrial. The design took inspiration from the idea of interlocking mechanical parts and the sleek finish of contemporary machinery" according to the architects' website.

According to Oakwood Premier's website: This is "Oakwood’s most luxurious offering, catering to the world’s power players – bankers, embassy officials, heads of Fortune 1000 companies and relocating senior executives".
