The 0.69 acre site will comprise three buildings standing 22 storeys tall at the highest. Addressing the built environment accounting for over 40% of the UK's total carbon emissions, the scheme will employ efficient energy systems, solar panels to offset demand, water recycling and natural ventilation. The new public park at street level will bring much needed outdoor space to Southwark, with the removal of the footbridge enhancing the setting and opening up views to Southwark Cathedral and nearby listed buildings.
At the ground floor we are creating a new home for Southwark Playhouse, bringing the theatre back home to London Bridge and setting it within the park, which will itself host a diverse programme of cultural activity.
Our approach to the site will be informed by nine principles of development.
