  • 33 Cavendish Square, London

Other Information

  • The design of 33 Cavendish Square consists of two slabs set perpendicular to each other above a three floor podium that was constructed on the site of some now-demolished grand old Georgian villas.
  • Despite the TP Bennett design that features stone and vertical lines of black marble, the tower still manages in the eyes of many to look brutal rather than the classy Modernist affair it was originally intended to be.
  • To handle the passenger capacity, the lifts are split into two banks. One for floors 1-8 and the other for floors 9-19. Above this are the plant rooms.
  • The scheme was developed by the Coal Board Pension Fund who had bought the entire city block and redeveloped it to provide them with income. They sold it in 2005 to a business consortium from Abu Dhabi for 425 million, 110 million more than the starting price.
