Developers St James have received approval from the London Borough of Lambeth to go ahead with major redevelopments on Eastbury House on Albert Embankment.
The scheme will see a brand new building will reach 28 floors at its highest point and 14 at its lowest, and will consist of high quality London office space, along with cafes, shops, residences and a public piazza.
In its place currently stands an old office block rising 11 floors above the Albert Embankment on Tinworth Street which will be demolished to make way for the architecturally admired replacement, designed by Rogers Stirk Harbour and Partners.
“We’re expecting up to 3,500 new homes to be built in the Vauxhall area alone within the next ten years,” says Lambeth Council Leader Steve Reed.
“We will continue to work with developers to make sure we get good quality, well designed schemes that contribute towards our vision to recreate a lively riverside town centre.”
