In pictures: New Covent Garden Market revealed

  • Comment

The first plans for the 57-acre Garden at New Covent Garden Market development in Nine Elms, Vauxhall have been revealed

Neil Tomlinson Architects is working on plans for the main area, which will include a fresh produce market as well as buyers walks, cafés and office space, while Foster + Partners are re-designing the current flower market site.

The designs by Neil Tomlinson show for the first time The Garden Heart, which will be a focus for food- and flower-related activities outside of the Market.

This area could include incubator space for start up businesses, food training and education spaces, including demonstration kitchens suitable for use by catering colleges and other education providers.

Meanwhile, Foster + Partners is working on an area located just 400m from Vauxhall Cross and identified in the Draft London Plan and the emerging Opportunity Area Framework as an area for major regeneration and suitable for tall buildings. 

The emerging plans include up 1,800 new homes along with new shops and other commercial spaces, with two public squares connected to a new ‘green route’ running through the site

A public consultation is currently underway.
