Iconic capital tower to see major refurb

Posted by Mark

Centre Point has stood sentinel over London’s West End since the 1960s, and has gone from being much maligned to listed. In the latest developments in its story, the tower which gave its name to a homeless charity is to see a multi-million pound redevelopment.

The major driving force behind the project is Crossrail. It is little surprise too, as work continues at the very foot of the Centre Point tower on the Tottenham Court Road aspect of the scheme.

Talking about the ambitious plans, a spokesman for the redevelopment of the building said:

“We intend to transform the way Londoners view and interact with Centre Point, while always staying true to its heritage. Our ambition is to ensure the scheme is re-established as a landmark destination that Londoners can be proud of.”

A Grade II listed building, the plans for the tower are to convert it to a mixed-use development.

The scheme will see the creation of 82 apartments, which will range from one-bed properties to four-bed penthouses. The real noticeable change will be to the fabric of the building itself though, as cleaning, repair and conversion to an energy efficient development come online.

Commercial areas will also play a key role in the new building complex. As well as major  office fit out  office fit out projects, there will be new retail space and room for bars and restaurants.

With a new lattice work external structure, it is also hoped the building will become a more welcoming place to visit.
