87 Gower Street is located in central Bloomsbury, on its border with Fitzrovia, within the borough of Camden. The property benefits from being surrounded by Fitzrovia to the west, Euston to the north, St Pancras to the east and Bloomsbury to the south.
The building sits prominently on the corner of Gower Street and Torrington Place. Gower Street is strategically positioned linking Euston Road to High Holborn, via New Oxford Street. Torrington Place is the main thoroughfare from Tottenham Court Road to Gray's Inn Road. COMMUNICATION
Existing communications are excellent with Tottenham Court Road (Northern and Central lines), Euston Square (Hammersmith & City, Metropolitan and Circle lines), Warren Street (Victoria and Northern lines) and Goodge Street (Northern line) within walking distance. There are also numerous bus routes operating along Gower Street providing easy access to the rest of London. Transport connections will further improve with the completion of Crossrail at Tottenham Court Road in 2019. This is the most significant infrastructure development in Central London since the opening of the Underground over 150 years ago. THE WEST END PROJECT
The West End Project is Camden Council's £35 million scheme to deliver exciting improvements to the heart of Camden's busy West End. Work is now underway to transform the areas around Tottenham Court Road, Gower Street, Bloomsbury Street, Princes Circus and St Giles, helping the area to continue to grow and flourish.
Major changes include Tottenham Court Road and Gower Street/Bloomsbury Street becoming two way to traffic, reducing congestion and air pollution and speeding up bus routes. There will be new safer provisions for cyclists as well as new and regenerated public and green spaces.
The project will provide safer, greener and more attractive streets for residents and visitors. DESCRIPTION
