Scheme includes 37-storey tower by Squire & Partners

Squire & Partners and John McAslan & Partners have seen two major schemes at Elephant & Castle approved by Southwark planning councillors this week.

The 37-storey St Mary’s Residential by Squire’s tower is being developed by Lend Lease and marks the first phase of the regeneration of the south London area, while John McAslan’s £20 million leisure centre will sit alongside for community use.

The tower, which also includes a four-storey pavilion building, will include 284 new homes and is due to start on site in summer 2013. The leisure centre, which is funded through the land sale of the tower, is due to complete in autumn 2014.

Rob Deck, Lend Lease’s project director, said the decision is a “milestone” for the regeneration of Elephant & Castle.

    It looks quite mediocre to me, but then again E&C is hideous anyway. More importantly what does the resident south-london correspondent, kamichi think of this

    I like how Squire's 37 storey tower shimmers into invisibilty next to McAslan's leisure centre.

    Shouldn't towers like this be built at Canary Wharf?
