“We can’t forget the NHS workers enduring to keep everyone safe and healthy” – Terry Hui
LONDON, Dec. 27, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Concord London and Brookfield are lighting up the landmark 50-storey Principal Tower with a show of hearts for the many thousands of NHS workers who will be working and not with loved ones during this festive period.
The team behind the iconic Foster+Partners-designed skyscraper are calling on Londoners to take some time to thank an NHS worker they know during the holidays in December, as staff work tirelessly amidst the ongoing challenges of the pandemic including the recent Omicron threat.
Terry Hui, CEO of Concord Pacific Group: “It has been a difficult two years for those working in healthcare. Londoners are famously resilient, yet at the same time we can’t forget the ultra-marathon that NHS workers continue to endure to keep everyone safe and healthy. During this festive period, we encourage everyone to take a moment to express their gratitude to those who may not be able to spend time with loved ones this year because of their service to the community.”
Principal Tower will be lighting up nightly through to New Year’s Eve between 17:00 and 20:30. The Principal Place Plaza at the Amazon UK Headquarters is an amazing vantage point for photos and making video messages. There will also be an NYE countdown streamed on Instagram Live from 23:55.
We urge people to follow Government guidance. In the case of another lockdown, we encourage people to watch the footage and share online instead of visiting outside in person.
The piazza, at the doorstep of Amazon’s UK Headquarters, is also home to a stunning installation commissioned by Brookfield called “Singularity*”, created by Squidsoup and forming a key part of the Illumino City Festival circuit.
Spectacular sharable footage and photos from the air and ground for the Principal Tower light up will be posted at, instagram.com/principaltower and Instagram instagram.com/concord.london or facebook.com/principaltower
