ALLIES AND MORRISON APPOINTED TO REDEVELOP ELEPHANT AND CASTLE
July 14, 2015
Allies and Morrison is developing a design for the redevelopment of the Elephant and Castle shopping centre and London College of Communication sites for Delancey’s client fund DV4 and APG, Europe’s largest pension fund asset manager.
The development will include a broad range of residential typologies with over 1,000 units, a new campus for the London College of Communication and the University of Arts London, a new London underground station, commercial space and a retail town centre.
Artur Carulla, partner at Allies and Morrison, said “It is a great privilege and responsibility to be able to contribute to the regeneration of Elephant and Castle by designing the redevelopment of two large sites at the heart of the opportunity area. Our plans will tackle the urban challenges inherited from the post-war redevelopment of the area, deliver a rich mix of uses and make significant contributions to the public realm with improved connections between the different modes of public transport.”
The emerging design was on display in a public consultation in July 2015. Jamie Ritblat, chief executive of Delancey said “The exhibition will show for the first time our emerging plans to deliver a fantastic new town centre at the heart of Elephant and Castle.”
University of the Arts London’s vice chancellor Nigel Carrington said “UAL is proud to have been at the heart of Elephant and Castle for more than half a century and this development will mean we’re there for years to come.“
