Rogers, Howells and Allies and Morrison win the chance to work in Elephant and Castle

  • Comment
Rogers Stirk Harbour, Glenn Howells and Allies and Morrison are among the practices who will be working on the redevelopment of south London's Elephant and Castle.

The Lend Lease consortium, which includes the three practices, has beaten rival bidder St Modwen to win the £1.5 billion Southwark Council scheme.

News that the Lend Lease consortium - which also includes developers First Base and Oakmayne - had won the contract is a body blow for St Modwen regional director Tim Seddon who last month said he was 'totally confident' that his consortium would win (Date announced for Elephant and Castle developer decision).

The rejection of St Modwen's pitch means its architects, David Chipperfield, SOM and designer Thomas Heatherwick, will not work on the 69ha scheme which, has been masterplanned by Make.

Make took over from Foster & Partners in 2004 as masterplanner for what is one of London's most down-at-heel, but important, hubs.
