The Gallery | Brookfield Multiplex starts on Centre Point transformation

Brookfield Multiplex has started work on a major refurbishment of London’s landmark Centre Point tower.

Developer Almacantar plans to create 82 residential apartments, almost 4,000m2 of retail space and a public square on the Oxford Street site.

Designed by Richard Seifert and opened in 1966, Centre Point is one of London’s original skyscrapers. During the refurbishment scheme, the Grade II listed building will be wrapped in prints designed to capture the tower’s Swinging Sixties design and flair.

“The start of construction at Centre Point is a pivotal moment for a scheme that has been more than three years in the making,” said Almacantar development director Kathrin Hersel.

“The project will breathe new life into this landmark, giving it a sustainable and exciting future for the benefit of all Londoners and visitors to the capital.”

The developer aims to complete construction by mid-2017, ahead of the opening of the Crossrail station at Tottenham Court Road.
