Some of the most distinctive buildings in the capital are getting a makeover, so now’s the time to buy a pad in a London landmark. Here is your guide to the most notable:
Centre Point, Oxford Street
The 1960s grade II listed skyscraper at the junction of Oxford Street and Tottenham Court Road has long been a navigational point for Londoners. The 34-floor building, commissioned by the renowned developer Harry Hyams and designed by Richard Seifert and Partners, has now been acquired by the property-investment group Almacantar and is to be transformed by Rick Mather Architects and Conran & Partners into 82 apartments, a spa, gym, pool and club lounge as well as shops and restaurants. Prices from £1.825 million.
