Grenfell Tower: Residential building in London destroyed by fire in 2017
Grenfell Tower is a derelict 24-storey residential tower block in North Kensington in London, England, the remains of which are still standing following a severe fire in June 2017. The tower was completed in 1974, as part of the first phase of the Lancaster West Estate. The tower was named after Grenfell Road, which ran to the south of the building; the road itself was named after Field Marshal Lord Grenfell, a senior British Army officer.
