The flats are part of a development at One Hyde Park, designed by Richard Rogers Partnership. They will not be ready until 2010.

Sources said today that the four penthouse flats could feature bullet proof windows, specially purified air and even "panic rooms". The security system is believed to have been developed after consultation with the SAS.

A tunnel will link the flats to the Mandarin Oriental hotel, which will provide a concierge service for the development, which contains 86 flats with prices starting at £4 million.

The complex will also have a spa, squash court and private wine-tasting facility. According to the One Hyde Park website, the scheme is "a new residential scheme whose beauty, luxury and prestige will place it in a class of its own".
