Building work has begun on the Sellar Property Group’s Fielden House development – a 26-storey project, which will sit alongside The Shard near London Bridge.
The residential tower, designed by The Shard architect, Renzo Piano, will feature 148 apartments, around 1,800sq m of retail, and 1,200sq m of public space.
The scheme will replace a 1950s office building on London Bridge Street and is located between The Shard and the News Building.
Work is scheduled for completion in 2018.
A new website for the local community, which explains the council's plans for the regeneration of Old Kent Road, has been launched
