Southwark Council and developer Lend Lease have selected architects to design a new leisure centre and housing scheme at the Elephant & Castle.
Both schemes will be on the site of an existing leisure centre, with the new sports centre and swimming pool to be built by S&P Architects, which has recently worked on the design of the aquatic centre for the 2012 Olympics.
The residential element will be designed by separate architects firm Squire & Partners.
