Only at Selfridges: HTC One Skatepark

 

To celebrate the release of the new HTC One (M8), we teamed up with Selfridges to transform the Old Selfridges Hotel, an abandoned hotel right in the heart of London, into the UK’s largest undercover skate landscape; the perfect environment to put our new smartphone to the test.

HTC SKATEPARK IN NUMBERS

The HTC One Skatepark took 11 specialists more than 270 hours to make components and a another 1,320 hours to build on-site using 53,000 screw fixings, 731 sheets of plywood, and 3,935 metres of timber.
