I'm pleased to report that the architectual qualities of the reclad former MI6 tower have finally received the recognition they deserve from one of the country's most perceptive architectural commentators:
Having once lived next door to this pile of overpriced, overserviced and overconcierged tower of sh*te, I wholeheartedly agree. An 'exclusive' penthouse at £4m, despite there being three others and four 'sub-penthouses' but hey Kevin Spacey lives here so it can't be all bad ;0).
we nearly bought a 2 bed flat in the 'shared ownership' section, right next to the station (out of sight in the picture, to the left), but the mortgage was £120k on only 45% of the property, back in early 2002, and there was rent on the rest too!
they also used one of the top flats for filming of Trinny and Susanah.
