New Covent Garden unveils latest redevelopment plans

[FIRST LOOK] Foster + Partners and Neil Tomlinson Architects have revealed new images of the 23ha mixed-use redevelopment of New Covent Garden, South London

The scheme close to Vauxhall Station, which has moved into the second phase of public consultation, features three towers between 25 and 46 storeys high on the so-called Northern Site designed by Foster + Partners.

The mixed-use development would have 1,800 new homes, a hotel, supermarket and retail.

A green route would link to the proposed new US Embassy designed by KieranTimberlake and Rafael Vinoly’s Battersea Power Station redevelopment, as specified in the Mayor’s draft development framework for the area.

The commercial activities of the market are to be consolidated and a new public square and food centre called The Market Heart designed by Neil Tomlinson Architects will be built.

Jan Lloyd, chief executive of Covent Garden Market Authority (CGMA) said: ‘The new Garden Heart will also be a significant new food destination in London.  With the food agenda continuing to have such a high profile we are confident that this part of The Garden will be hugely successful and will ensure that The Garden is the centre for food in London in the future.’

CGMA will submit a single outline planning application for the whole site in mid 2010.
