Pink Floyd’s Recording Studio Is Being Turned Into Condos
The U.K. studio Pink Floyd built in the mid-’70s and used for three of their albums is going to be converted into luxury rental space.
What we're talking about is the facility where Pink Floyd recorded 1977’s 'Animals', as well as parts of 1979’s 'The Wall' and 1994’s 'The Division Bell'.
At first, all four band members shared a stake in Britannia Row. Drummer Nick Mason eventually assumed full ownership, moved the recording equipment to Fulham and converted the 25,000 square-foot facility into offices and studio space, before ultimately selling it in the early ’90s to the building manager.
The Britannia Row developer is adding two floors to the building for residential space, but the town council is ensuring that the rest will be reserved for business use. “It has a lot of really nice office space,” council member Martin Klute told the Islington Tribune. “We have lost a huge amount of small business space because … developers can make much more money converting spaces into residential”.
