Day and Night at Centre Point

Centre Point, Oxford Street, London, July (above) and August (below) 2020

Centre Point has had a potted history. It was built in the 1960s, empty until 1975, offices until 2015 and now luxury apartments.

    1. The rush of youth, maybe? I worked on Store Street for a while and used to dash to Neal’s Yard for lunch occasionally, but it was always a race against time. And the crowds seem to be building again BTW – Oxford Street was quite busy on Thursday


    1. I’m assuming they couldn’t get the deal they wanted and with property values rising they preferred to wait. It got a lot of complaints and became known at the Empty Skyscraper. Some homeless campaigners also got in and protested there for a week or so. We now have a charity for the homeless named after this building – not because the building supports the charity, but to make a point.
