South Bank Central was formerly known as King’s Reach Tower.
The Tower element was originally a thirty storey structure 111 metres high and was completed in 1972.
The buildings were designed by the famous architect Richard Seifert also known for designing Centrepoint on Tottenham Court Road and Tower 42.
The Tower at South Bank Central was once the headquarters of IPC Media, one of the biggest publishing companies in Europe.
In the late 1970s, the tower became part of the mythos surrounding the British comic 2000 AD, published by IPC, and the building was depicted as home to the ‘Nerve Centre’ of its alien editor, Tharg.
Today, South Bank Central is surrounded by a wealth of amenities. Discover the finest theatre, music and art at the South Bank Centre and Tate Modern. Explore the market at Gabriel’s Wharf and fine dining at the Oxo Tower; then relax with the latest in 5-star luxury at The Mondrian Hotel (part of the newly refurbished Sea Containers).
The area is looking forward to welcoming the Hoxton Hotel and residents at One Blackfriars and South Bank Tower.
