Centre Point Letters Lights

Centre Point, the brutalist tower of Tottenham Court Road, has had its iconic sign turned on once more.

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.)

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