The Top 3 Architectural Marvels of London

London’s commercial property industry has undoubtedly set off to a flying 2014. Many reports by authority organisations and tabloids like the Financial Times have highlighted that the British capital city has experienced an impressive property investment boom as foreign tycoons flood the city with propositions that could lead to profits gains from the largely healthy market.

As a company that specialises in assisting investors with many aspects of commercial property in London, we at Prideview Properties are aware that the fantastic architecture is one of the main reasons why many people want to stake a claim in the capital. As you may already know, London is a beautiful city that is home to many incredible structures. This blog will talk about some of the British capital city’s most impressive buildings.

The Gherkin

Built in 2003, The Gherkin was designed by architect Norman Forster. The lovable structure that resembles its pickled namesake has 41 floors all designed for office use and is located on 30 St Mary Axe, a part of London’s main financial district. The owners of the marvellous design have recently put the building up for sale and experts have predicted offers exceeding the asking price of an astonishing £550 million.

The Shard

Italian architect Renzo Piano was the mastermind behind this extraordinary architectural design that boasts 87 storeys of office space. The Shard does not only dominate vertically the UK’s construction industry, it is also the tallest building in the European Union. Despite being completed for two years now, reports state that the building is mostly empty. However, many highly regarded entities like Qatari based broadcasters Al Jazeera were among the companies interested in gaining tenancy within the offices.

Centre Point

The Centre Point is an amazing concrete and glass building that occupies 101 to 103 New Oxford Street. British architect Richard Seifert put his brilliant imagination and design skills to the test to plan the building that was built in 1967. Despite its age, the Centre Point still has state of the art facilities for all of the occupiers. This great building is the home to many reputable brands such as Barclays, Halifax and B&Q.

So there you are, three of the most impressive construction masterpieces that dwell within the commercial parts of London. Such buildings contribute largely towards investment attraction. There are many other similar buildings that are in demand, so if you are an investor, contact us at Prideview Properties on 0208 863 8680 while the opportunity to earn some profits still exists!
