St Giles Circus. London W1
A run-down corner of London tipped to become the capital’s answer to Times Square
One of Consolidated’s largest and most exciting projects to date, the vision is to reinvent the area bordered by St Giles High Street, Denmark Street and Charing Cross Road to create the equivalent of New York’s Times Square in London. Plans include gigantic advertising screens, a 2,000-seat live rock venue, an interactive music museum, a hotel, a sky bar and a new piazza above the proposed Crossrail station at Tottenham Court Road.
