1960's architecture that stayed the course and wasn't demolished. London's Centrpoint building was built over a five year span between 1961-66. !966 was a very important year as it was the year I turned four. Incredibly the skyscraper built in the so-called Brutalist style remained vacant for nigh on ten years until 1975. Companies that have occupied the skyscraper include the CBI (confederation of British Industry),the William Morris talent agency and oil companies from far and away. However Centrepoint will no longer be a place for large businesses to rent floor space as a transformation is underway to offer luxury apartments to those able to afford them with prices starting at a mere 3,000.000 to a very reasonable 55 million pounds. I hope to put a deposit of .01 percent down for one of the more 'affordable' flats and if accepted expect to be able to pay the deposit by 4096 A.D.
