London Vauxhall site set for Office Space Revamp
A ┬ú250m mixed-use scheme is being planned for a 2.9 acre site in London Vauxhall, by developers CLS Holdings, which will include 200,000 sq ft of office space along with homes, leisure facilities and a new public square.
Architects Allies and Morrison have been appointed to design the scheme.
CLS are expected to submit detailed plans later in the year, and if accepted, the development will be scheduled for completion between 2016 and 2017.
Along with office space, the scheme will introduce a new public square to the area and two 40-storey towers providing 400 apartments. The initial plans also include a 300-bed hotel, retail space, restaurants, bars, student housing, and a 6-screen cinema.
Going one step further, in conjunction with the plans CLS has also launched an international design competition for a ‘Linear Walk’ to resolve the issue of pedestrian access and movement around the area.
CLS Holdings CEO Richard Tice commented:
“We have already secured substantial support from early discussions with a number of key stakeholders and major nearby landowners.”
A new US Embassy is set to be constructed close to the proposed Vauxhall scheme, and it is thought that the completion date of the two developments will coincide. Mr Tice commented that the US Embassy have welcomed the Vauxhall works, and “encourage” the creation of a pedestrian friendly environment in the area.
