Work begins on Rogers and Foster's Embankment towers

Work has started on towers by Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners (RSHP) and Foster + Partners on the Albert Embankment in south London

The towers are located on brownfield land by the River Thames in Vauxhall which will be transformed into a hub of offices, residential, and retail units.

The pair of towers will include 208 homes, of which 84 will be affordable and specifically designed for senior living.

Foster’s scheme, named ‘The Corniche’, includes 168 apartments, a gym, a pool, retail and office space.

The RSHP-designed scheme, which replaces the existing 1958 Eastbury House, is formed of three stepped blocks ranging from 14 to 18 storeys. It will include 40 residential apartments, a roof garden, office space and a café.

Both buildings are due to complete in 2017.
