Proposals have been revealed for a new town centre in Elephant and Castle, which include up to 1,000 flats.

The plans, released by Delancey’s client fund DV4 and European pension fund asset manager APG, include a partnership with University of the Arts London to create a new centre for university services and a campus for its London College of Communication.

The redevelopment incorporates part of the Elephant and Castle shopping centre and the adjacent London College of Communication’s existing site. Initial proposals include shopping and leisure facilities, homes for rent, educational facilities for students, transport links and enhanced public spaces.

The Elephant and Castle town centre redevelopment is part of the wider £3 billion regeneration project underway in the area.

Jamie Ritblat, on behalf of Delancey, DV4 and APG, said: “Proposals include new world-class educational facilities, a significant increase in homes for rent and improved shopping and public realm for locals and visitors alike.”
