One of London’s best known landmarks, Centre Point has been used as Londoners 'North Star' since its arrival in the 60's.
The architect behind the icon, Colonel Richard Seifert, built a number of buildings in London. While many were considered controversial at the time, they have since come to be recognised as design classics worth preserving.
The new public square at the base of the tower will be lined with contemporary cafes and restaurants, while Londons' newest cinema and theatre complexes are soon to join the neighbourhood.
Within the 15,000 square feet of open space is direct access to the high speed railway Crossrail, allowing residents to travel to Heathrow airport in under 30 minutes from next year.
The Outernet experience brings together the epic scale of 360 degree 8K floor-to-ceiling screens with the world’s greatest storytellers and information providers. Commuters, local communities and tourists will enjoy a new experience every day as Outernet is refreshed by a carousel of broadcasters, video artists, news sources, advertisers and live events.
The Outernet is always on. It is a destination for live performance events and exlusive digital experiences; and relevant commercial offers for the passer-by.
This 285,000 sq ft mixed-use scheme on the corner of Oxford Street and Charing Cross Road, directly above Tottenham Court Road station, was granted planning permission in April 2012. It will comprise 209,000 sq ft of offices, 36,000 sq ft of retail, a 40,000 sq ft theatre and new public realm.
The site was handed back to the Group in January 2018 and enabling works are underway. The scheme is due to be delivered in early 2022. The Elizabeth line service is due to commence in autumn 2019.

Planning permission was obtained in September 2016 for the construction of a new 300,000 sq ft mixed-use development. The scheme is office led with 8 floors of prime Soho working space with large garden terraces accessible from every floor. A large portion of the site is dedicated to new public realm space with a new café and restaurant lined mews linking Manette Street to Greek Street. The mews will also provide an entrance to 3 levels of extensive subterranean creative office and post production space. Warner Bros has taken 25,000 square feet of the subterranean office space for their London post production facility.
On the Soho side of the development 14 Greek Street, a Grade II listed building, will be protected and carefully restored. Next door at 12-13 Greek Street the façade of the building is being retained whilst 8 affordable housing flats are constructed behind it.
Located in the heart of the West End, Tottenham Court Road is undergoing a major transformation. The Crossrail project is delivering a new underground station and ticket hall at Dean Street in Soho and a second integrated ticket hall below St Giles Circus on Oxford Street.
When complete, Tottenham Court Road will be one of London’s busiest stations, offering an interchange between the Northern, Central and Elizabeth line services with more than 200,000 passengers passing through the station every day.
The new station at Tottenham Court Road will stretch from a new plaza in front of Centrepoint westwards to Dean Street, running directly below Soho Square. Above ground, a protected conservation area, heritage listed buildings, bustling retail, businesses and a new theatre frame the local station context.
