Euston Tower


Euston Tower is a skyscraper located in the London Borough of Camdenmarker. It is a good example of an International style skyscraper with glass curtain walls. It is situated at the intersection of Tottenham Court Roadmarker/Hampstead Road and Euston Road. It stands across the Euston Road from Warren Street underground station. Its official address is 286 Euston Roadmarker.

The building is high, and has 36 floors. The building was designed by Sidney Kaye.

History

Among Londoners, the Euston Tower was most famous for being the home of Capital Radio from 1973 until 1997, at which point they moved to Leicester Squaremarker. It was common for Capital to announce itself as broadcasting "from the top of the Euston Tower", but in fact Capital's offices and studios were all based in the ground- and first-floor podium sections rather than in the actual skyscraper section. ITV station Thames Television occupied premises adjacent to the tower from 1970 to 1993 although these have subsequently been redeveloped.

Originally, the base of the tower was a raised platform with a series of walkways at the first floor connecting the tower with the other buildings on the Euston Centre. Recent renovation work by Arup has seen cafes and shops open in the base. An HM Revenue and Customs office is located there. The upper 10 floors are the London home of the international design and engineering firm WS Atkins PLC. The development around Euston Tower is now branded Regent's Placemarker and is managed by British Land.
