Colliers Wood Tower

Colliers Wood is dominated by the “Colliers Wood Tower”. Originally named the “Lyon Tower”, it was originally occupied as the headquarters of property company Ronald Lyon Holdings but has also been known as “The Vortex” and the “Brown & Root Tower”. It was voted the ugliest building in London in a 2006 BBC poll and one of the 12 ugliest in the UK in a 2005. When being built, the tower reached the third storey before an error in construction was discovered and it was demolished to begin again.
