Cycle storage towers shortlisted for London's Old Street makeover - BikeBiz
CoveBurgess Architects have been shortlisted for the competition to redevelop Old Street roundabout.

Distinctive cycle storage towers rising above a pocket park could take the place of an ugly and busy 1960s roundabout on London's Old Street, close to Look Mum No Hands.

The concept by CoveBurgess Architects has been shortlisted in a competition to make the roundabout into the "Old Street Iconic Gateway."

The towers would store up to 200 bicycles each, and could feature retail elements at the base. Cycle Republic recently announced it is evaluating creating cycle parking hubs at some of its city centre stores.

CoveBurgess partner Dan Cove said: “This is an exciting concept which reactivates the public realm around this key highway junction. We have incorporated a practical solution to cycle storage, whilst incorporating a aesthetically dynamic vision for this busy junction."
