Plans for a 160,000sq ft residential tower for the next phase of the London Bridge Quarter were revealed on 14 January.
The 27-storey building will include 150 apartments, new public space, landscaping and a new multi-level retail space. It is designed by Shard architect Renzo Piano and is being developed by Sellar Property group in partnership with the State of Qatar.
It will be built on the site of Fielden House, comprised of offices and retail space. Dan Pearson Studio is undertaking landscaping of the public space in partnership with Renzo Piano.
A planning application is expected to follow after a public consultation.
James Sellar said: “This exciting project continues the regeneration of the area around London Bridge Station, building on the success of both The Shard and The Place as well as the significant improvements we have already made to the station concourse and bus station.”
A new website for the local community, which explains the council's plans for the regeneration of Old Kent Road, has been launched
