Other Information

  • Radio City Tower, originally called St John's Beacon, was planned to have a 21.3 metre tall mast on the top of it but this was removed from the design whilst the structure was under construction.
  • The Beacon originally had a revolving restaurant at the top along with an observation level but these were closed in 1984 following the enforcement of fire regulations which ruled that a lack of a staircase made the building unsuitable for this. Unlike the BT Tower in London no amendment was passed by parliament exempting it from the law.
  • The building was completely renovated in 2000 with a new fireproof staircase added whilst the observation level was turned into a second floor with offices and a conference centre for the occupier to use. The weight of this has meant that the original rotating floor can no longer turn.
