Developer proposes turning iconic Millbank to flats

Posted on by

PLANS have been unveiled to turn the iconic Millbank office tower in London in to a residential development.

The 50-year-old skyscraper, the tallest in London when it was built, would be extended upwards to include three extra floors with a total of 210 new apartments created.

The redevelopment, which would also include neighbouring 30 Millbank, would feature a new luxury hotel and a leisure centre.

Some of the businesses occupying office space in Millbank tower currently include the Environment Agency, the UK India Business Council, World First and the Audit Commission. It was famously home to the Labour Party in the run up to the 1997 General Election in which Tony Blair was first elected.

A website with information about the transformation of Millbank Tower, owned by David and Simon Reuben, says that the future of the building is “best secured by a complete refurbishment that will revive the development with exciting offers for the local area and for the many visitors to this extraordinary location.”
