Revealed: new images of Allies and Morrison's Elephant and Castle plans

  • 2 Comments

Allies and Morrison has revealed more detailed visuals of its plans for 1,000 flats and a new home for the London College of Communication (LCC) on the site of the Elephant and Castle Shopping Centre

Initial proposals for the 1960s south London landmark went out to consultation last summer. Now developer Delancy, in collaboration with pension fund APG, is asking for the public’s response to the latest designs at an exhibition that runs until Saturday (28 May).   

Under the proposals, the shopping centre will retain its ‘retail heart’ combining ’national and independent London-based shops, bars, cafés and restaurants’.

Featuring a series of towers ranging from 19 to 34 storeys, the scheme also includes a new entrance to the Northern line underground station at the base of a 12-storey block housing the London College of Communication.

The new plans for the shopping centre form the heart of the wider £3 billion regeneration of Elephant and Castle.

Artur Carulla, a partner at Allies and Morrison, said the concept created ‘more walkable, people-centred spaces’ with ‘improved connections between different modes of transport’ together with ‘new cultural venues and places to live, work and shop in the heart of London’.

The exhibition is being held in the Elephant and Castle Shopping Centre, within the corner shop next to the National Railway station entrance (former Little Orient) on the Upper Mall.

  • Having studied the existing building and community extensively I am glad to see such respectful architects working on the scheme. Please don't overlook the existing local community needs such as the existing street-market culture.

  • It seems amazing that with such investment of time and money at Elephant and Castle that a better traffic solution could not be found, thus these images still show 6 lanes of traffic encircling the proposal.
