Situated in the cultural heart of London’s famous West End, this Almacantar redevelopment ensures residents experience the absolute best the city has to offer from within an unrivalled living environment.
Bordering the most dynamic and exclusive neighbourhoods including Covent Garden, Bloomsbury, Soho and Fitzrovia, Centre Point is surrounded by an unparalleled, creative community. The immediate area has 30 museums, public and private galleries, and 40 theatres including the Royal Opera House, National Gallery and the British Museum. No longer just an entertainment and cultural hot spot, the West End is now home to some of the world’s most innovative businesses including universal leaders in technology (Facebook and Google), beauty (Estée Lauder) and film (Warner Bros. and Universal) breathing new life into the area. At the heart of all this are Centre Point’s residents who can look out across the panoramic, protected views of London’s eminent skyline from within their apartments to see magnificent sites including St. Paul’s Cathedral, Tower Bridge, Big Ben, the Houses of Parliament, the London Eye and the River Thames.
Originally commissioned by renowned developer Harry Hyams and designed by Richard Seifert, Centre Point is one of modern architecture’s most innovative structures. The brutalist masterpiece was built in 1966 at a time when London was transforming itself into a fashionable, exciting and vibrant city. Capturing the adventurous spirit of the sixties – an era of innovation, individualism, collaboration and aspiration – the building became protected by English Heritage as a Grade II listed property in 1995. To honour its heritage, Centre Point’s architects, Conran and Partners, have cleverly incorporated some of the coveted external design features into the building’s interior spaces. With design playing a pivotal role throughout the interiors, Centre Point’s shared living areas feature bespoke art installations by renowned British artists Cerith Wynn Evans and Richard Wentworth, while the exclusive apartments boast a luxury finish by Conran and Partners. Inspired by the building’s facade with the equally vibrant and creative soul of London today, each apartment features the best in British craftsmanship with products created by a selection of the world’s top designers.
“The word ‘unique’ is probably the most overused in the property industry; however, with Centre Point we can say it with confidence. Be it the original brutalist architecture, the unparalleled views, the attention to detail, or the proximity to the very best London has to offer; living in Centre Point is unlike anything else in London.” Kathrin Hersel, Property Director at Almacantar
As part of the transformation, Centre Point will soon reveal its newly developed pedestrianised square designed by Rick Mather Architects. Comparable to some of London’s most famous garden squares, the area will be home to contemporary shops, entertainment venues and a new destination in dining as internationally-renowned names and their new concept restaurants arrive throughout the summer of 2018.
The advantages of living at Centre Point do not end there. Within the building itself all residents can take full advantage of their access to the club – a range of premier amenities. These include a screening room, cutting-edge gym and studio, tranquil spa and relaxing treatment rooms, in addition to a 30-metre swimming pool – one of the longest residential pools in London – which overlooks world-shopping destination Oxford Street. Formal meeting and grand dining rooms are also available as well as underground parking, 24-hour security and an esteemed, 24-hour concierge desk, which can be reached in person or via a smartphone app.
Other benefits include Centre Point’s impeccably well-connected transport links. Adjacent to Tottenham Court Road station, residents have direct access to the rest of London. From 2018, the introduction of Crossrail’s Tottenham Court Road station will allow residents to return home from Mayfair or the city’s global financial district within 5 minutes, from Canary Wharf in 10 minutes and from Heathrow Airport in just under 30 minutes.
With 1-5-bedroom apartments available to buy or rent now, living at Centre Point is set to become as coveted and iconic as the building and area itself.
