Maccreanor Lavington unveils Elephant scheme
Maccreanor Lavington has released these new images of this proposed 360-home scheme in London’s Elephant & Castle
The development for Lend Lease is the first phase of the Heygate Masterplan, now renamed Elephant Park, which sits along the south-eastern part of the former Heygate estate in the up-and-coming south London area.
The proposal, which gained planning last year, varies from three storey houses to a sixteen storey tower.
Working to a masterplan by Make, the £1.5 billion wider scheme was given the green light by communities secretary Eric Pickles in July 2013 after a long and bitter battle by residents of the now deserted and partly demolished estate.
The Maccreanor Lavington homes are only a small part of the 8.8 hectare site which will eventually include 2,469 new homes.
Other practices working in Elephant for Lend Lease include John McAslan + Partners, which is drawing up plans for a new leisure centre, and Squire and Partners, which is working on a residential tower.
