Pink Floyd Historical Site Being Turned Into Housing

Finally, an iconic location in Pink Floyd’s history will soon be no more.

Per TeamRock, Britannia Row, the studio where the legendary band recorded The Wall, will soon be turned into luxury apartments.   The studio, itself, was part of a larger warehouse, which will yield eight new fancy flats.  No word yet as to how much these apartments will cost, but considering the historical significance, the company behind the project will likely grab that cash with both hands and make a stash.
