Kicking up a stink? Rogers and the sewerage pipe

  • Comment

Pity Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners for what may become of its Tideway Wharf scheme at Nine Elms in south London.

The spangling ‘toast-rack’ style mixed-use towers could be stymied by something of a decidedly gloopy nature. Yes, Thames Water’s £3.5 billion super-sewer has reared its ugly head – the 2ha site has been earmarked as preferred location for a ‘main drive shaft’.

What this could mean for the £325 million waterfront scheme is yet to be decided. Presumably, if the shaft is bored, at best it could be that the plans for 800 flats and a 125-bed hotel are delayed. At worst, the practice may be tasked with a redesign and landscape scheme aimed at disguising a giant sulphuric ground hole.
