Proposals approved for Elizabeth House redevelopment
Lambeth council’s planning committee unanimously backed plans for HB Reavis’ 1.2 million square ft development in October.
The scheme will see the existing Elizabeth House on York Road completely transformed to create 1.2 million square feet of office, retail and public realm in Waterloo, next to the country’s busiest station. Stirling Prize-winning architects AHMM’s designs also include a one acre public garden that will connect to the station concourse and a new pedestrianised street lined with shops and cafes.
The scheme will support 11,000 jobs and will include £33 million worth of subsidised workspace memberships that will be provided over 15 years to Lambeth start-ups, businesses and not-for-profit organisations within the creative and digital industries.
HB Reavis are also contributing £3.6 million to an employment and skills programme that will help Lambeth residents take advantage of the new employment and training opportunities created by the scheme.
