Allies and Morrison submits Vauxhall twin towers

Allies and Morrison’s £400 million twin-towers project at Vauxhall in south London has been submitted for planning

The 154,000m² mixed-use development features 510 residential units and a new public square. Four Grade-II listed houses will be retained within the site.

Submitted to local authority Lambeth Council this week, the scheme for developer CLS Holdings also includes 15,231m² of office space, a 438 bedroom hotel, a four-screen cinema and a homeless hostel.

CLS chief executive Richard Tice said: ‘This substantial mixed-use scheme is a key element to the Vauxhall Nine Elms regeneration plans.

‘It will create a new vibrant heart for Vauxhall and over 1,000 additional full-time jobs across a broad range of skills, both during and after construction. 

‘The investment of over £400 million will bring substantial benefits to a wide range of stakeholders, and is not dependent on the Northern Line extension.’

Subject to winning planning consent, CLS aims to start on site in 2014 and complete the first phases from 2017 onwards. 

Foster + Partners and Neil Tomlinson Architects’ £1 billion New Covent Garden Market redevelopment masterplan is next door, and was submitted for outline planning consent two months ago. Kieran Timberlake’s competition-winning new US Embassy proposal is also nearby.

A £20 million skywalk project – linked to CLS Holdings’ development – was shelved in June but Marks Barfield Architects has been appointed to draw up plans for an alternative street-level scheme in the area.

Allies and Morrison is also masterplanning the 2.5 hectare redevelopment of a Royal Mail depot nearby which was redesigned following criticism from DC CABE.
