The iconic Centre Point building on New Oxford Street in London is set for a £350m ($544m) upgrade, with cogeneration forming a significant part of the plan.

Developer Almacantar has resubmitted plans to convert the 34-storeyoffice tower in London into luxury flats.

Construction Weekly reports that the huge refurbishment will not see any part of the grade-II listed tower demolished.

The building will be upgraded to cut energy consumption with new high performance glazing, a central combined heat and power system and sedum roof.

The planning committee is due to give its verdict on the scheme in July, with completion due in 2016.
