In pictures: KPF’s King’s Reach tower plans unveiled

[First look + plans] These are the first images of KPF’s project to redevelop King’s Reach tower on London’s Southbank

Designed by Richard Seifert and completed in 1972, the 31-storey tower has lain empty since tenant IPC Media decamped to Allies and Morrison’s nearby Blue Fin building in 2007.

KPF was appointed to redevelop the tower in September last year, sidelining 37,000m² plans by Make which involved re-cladding the building, adding four new floors and demolishing a podium structure.

Expected to go before Southwark Council’s planning committee next month, the KPF scheme features 42,000m² and 177 residential units and adds six new storeys to the tower.

The project also retains and refurbishes Seifert’s original T-shaped podium structure creating a roof terraces and improved public realm.

If approved, work is expected to commence early next year. A public consultation on the scheme will close next week.
