Work Starts on Building More Posh Flats for Non-Londoners in London

By Gary Cutlack on at

The current owner of Centre Point is pleased to announce it's started work on rejigging the building, with the complex of offices and bars set to be replaced by, you guessed it, more expensive flats.

The iconic 1960s building at the end of Oxford Street will see out its next few decades as "luxury apartments" for whoever can afford them, with 82 separate flats set to be created inside its ominous concrete shell over the next two and a half years. A new pedestrianised square will also jazz up the building's currently rather utilitarian base. [Reuters]
