Southwark selects three for 'Elephant' renewal

  • Comment

Southwark Council has whittled down the shortlist for its masterplan competition for the Elephant & Castle shopping centre on 10ha in south London from six teams to three.

It has pitched Terry Farrell & Partners, with the London and Amsterdam/Countryside Consortium, against Tibbalds Monro which has teamed up with St George Consortia. The third player is Southwark Land Regeneration which includes kp Architects, Benoy and hta.

A council spokeswoman said the aim of the scheme, centring on a major roundabout, two housing estates and the shopping area, was to turn it into a 'car-free, people-friendly area.' The council chose the teams because they had financial clout and experience of major urban regeneration, vision, creativity and expertise.

They must submit draft plans to the council in April 2000 following a public exhibition and consultation on all three projects. Southwark will choose a winner to start next summer or autumn.
