The Tower in Furnival Square could look like this after a refurbishment

Luxembourg-based firm PRA 2 S.à r.l has revealed plans to refurbish The Tower, which overlooks Furnival Square.

The aim is to reclad the building in grey, build a new entrance at street level and create a ninth floor terrace.

According to the plans the current entrance is ‘pulled back’ from the pavement. The application adds: “As a result it has a reduced street presence and does not feel welcoming or engaging to visitors or building users.”
