48 Leicester Square, London W1

Overview

Communications House is a mixed use building from 1920s overlooking Leicester Square. The building is currently being reconstructed by the designs of Make Architects. The interior and upper parts will be extensively redeveloped by adding a new core, new floor plates, a new upper storey of accommodation and a new roof.

The ground floor will be reconfigured to accommodate high-end retail provision and premium outdoor dining space that positively engages with the currently under-utilised streetscape. Seven floors of office accommodation will be upgraded to comply with modern standards and a clearly defined office entrance added. An elegant new curved roof will enclose the upper floors, offering a unique twenty-first century interpretation of the traditional London mansard style. The building is just moments from Piccadilly Circus and Leicester Square underground stations
