St George Wharf is a riverside development in the London Borough of Lambeth, England, United Kingdom, located on the southern bank of the River Thames beside Vauxhall Bridge. The 93,000 sqm (1,000,000 sqft) mixed-use development is located between the Vauxhall Cross road junction and river, and is near Vauxhall station. The River Effra, one of the Thames’ many underground tributaries, empties into the main river close-by.
The development comprises over 1,100 apartments, as well as offices, retail units and restaurants. It has twice won The Architects’ Journal’s ‘Worst building in the world’ award. On 16 January 2013, a helicopter collided with a crane being used in the construction of the St George Wharf Tower. The helicopter crashed in nearby Wandsworth Road, killing the pilot. One person on the ground also died, and a number of others were injured.
