Hamilton reveals residential skyscraper for Elephant - images

  • Comment
Hamilton Associates has submitted proposals for a £100 million energy-efficient tower in London's Elephant & Castle for planning.

The 25,000m 2development - complete with integrated wind turbines - will have 42 floors, 310 private apartments and include affordable housing, if it gets the go-ahead.

At the top of the building will sit three 9m-diameter wind turbines, able to produce enough electricity to light the entire building, according to developer Multiplex.

The developer claims that the uppermost 20m of the 147m-tall building would house this 'energy wind farm', a 'highly visible representation of the building's green credentials', if it is approved by Southwark Council planners.

Multiplex director Richard Banks said: 'We have created a pioneering, landmark building of the highest quality that will be the first of a cluster of towers that marks the new Elephant & Castle.'
