Central Saint Giles is a mixed use development, which will include offices, housing, retail and public space. Renzo Piano’s design has made the large building permeable and inviting. The floating island of office space and apartments above a lively public piazza will become an exemplar for high-density, mixed-use developments in the city.
The Landscape Masterplan will create public and semi-private spaces with a vibrant purpose. The creation of public animated spaces, which are both welcoming and inclusive for all, should create a vibrant mix of all year round uses.
