Capital Radio chose this land mark building, stretching between Shaftesbury Avenue and Leicester Square, not only for its size but for the location. The directors wanted the exterior to reflect the image of the station and to announce their arrival in the West End.

The windows, structural glazing and zinc cladding and render, together with an illuminated glass fin and other bespoke lighting were added to the main facades to ensure the building was distinctive both by day and by night.
