Sleep in the sky...BT Tower sold in £275m hotel deal

Popping up 600ft above London’s skyline, the BT Tower has been a West End landmark since the 1960s.

Now, the once high-tech monolith that began its life as the Post Office Tower is being transformed into a hotel in a £275 million sale.

BT has agreed to sell the nearly 60-year-old, Grade-II listed tower to American chain MCR Hotels, offering future punters the chance to sleep in the clouds.

To find out more about this end of an era - and the beginning of a new one, we’re joined in the studio by the Evening Standard’s business editor Jonathan Prynn.
