127 Kensington High Street was formerly the site of the original, highly regarded Pontings department store. The store was demolished in the 70s and replaced with two separate office blocks. To provide much improved mixed-use space, these structures were part removed leaving 30% remaining, and added to with extended areas and an additional two floors, as well as three levels of outdoor terracing.
