Built in 1966, the maligned concrete building has been under renovation since 2015, as it’s been turned by developers into – what else? – luxury flats. (To be fair, it would be quite a handy place to live.)

Well, those works are nearly at an end, and so the three-metre-high letters at the top, which have been orienting the lost shoppers of Oxford Street for decades, have been set aglow once more.

They’re probably the best–looking thing about the building, so it’s nice to see them back!
