Our proposals to redevelop Elizabeth House, Waterloo have received the green light from Lambeth Council
We are delighted that on 15th October 2019, Lambeth Council’s Planning Applications Committee unanimously voted in favour of our proposals for the redevelopment of our Elizabeth House site in Waterloo.
Designed by Stirling Prize-winning architects AHMM, the plans will create around 1.2 million sq ft of workspace supporting up to 11,000 jobs, creation of brand new retail and a transformed public realm next to Waterloo Station, which is the UK’s busiest train station.
A key feature of the proposed project is a one-acre, publicly accessible garden promenade, directly connected to the Waterloo Station concourse level and of benefit to the 100 million annual station users. A new pedestrianised street – the ‘Curve’, will also provide a major new pedestrian street for the area and be lined with shops and cafés.
These transforming public realm improvements will together provide desperately needed new access routes into Waterloo Station and help to accommodate the 30% projected passenger growth that is predicted over the next five years.
Our proposed project also creates new affordable workspaces, and overall the scheme will deliver a £100 million package of public benefits.
With a resolution to grant planning permission now secured, we are looking forward to progressing the next phase of work in 2020.
