Latest Potters Fields designs revealed

  • Comment

Squire and Partners has revealed the first images of its replacement for Ian Ritchie’s high-rise Potters Fields scheme next to Tower Bridge in London

Ritchie was ditched from the development by project backers Berkeley Homes and Southwark Council in April after a long-running saga surrounding the derelict Thames-side site.

The local authority is understood to be ‘delighted’ with Squire and Partner’s new mixed-use proposals which include a 8,000m² area ‘dedicated for cultural space use’ – a ‘single’ feature which was also included in the Ritchie cylindrical tower designs.

Councillor Nick Stanton, leader of Southwark Council, said: ‘We have been through a thorough process of consultation and have listened to a range of opinions from interested local community and business groups.

‘We have taken their views on board and we are confident that people will be pleased with the results.’

The new development will feature a 21-storey tower surrounded by lower units. Berkeley Homes hopes to submit a planning application for the site, which has sat empty since the 1970s, early next year.
