Assael Architecture has been granted planning permission for a £25 million mixed-use riverside development along the Albert Embankment in London. The London Borough of Lambeth awarded permission for the scheme, which will convert the former headquarters of British Steel into housing, with a leisure centre and some office space at basement and ground floor levels.
The development will feature 95 apartments in the 1960s block, a quarter of which will be social housing. The main structure of the building will be retained and a four-storey glass and steel pavilion will be placed on top of the building for penthouses. The developer of the scheme is Berkeley Homes.
