Central Saint Giles is a mixed-use development in central London. Built at a cost of £450 million and completed in May 2010, it was designed by the Italian architect Renzo Piano and is his first work in the UK. The development consists of two buildings of up to 15 storeys in height, arranged around a public courtyard lined with shops and restaurants. It is chiefly notable for its façades, covered with 134,000 glazed tiles in vivid shades of green, orange, lime and yellow. It has attracted a number of high-profile tenants including NBCUniversal, MindShare and Google.

  • Central Saint Giles is a mixed-use development of two buildings of up to 15 storeys in height, arranged around a public courtyard lined with shops and restaurants. Been to eat there a few times, but the development is chiefly notable for its façades on the building in vivid shades of green, orange, lime and yellow. Not a must see, but kind of interesting if in the area. Give the place another star if you're planning to eat there too.
  • Beautiful views of London. I've been here for business meetings several times.
