Allies & Morrison’s controversial scheme clears final hurdle

Sadiq Khan has approved the wholesale redevelopment of the Elephant & Castle shopping centre and the London College of Communications site.

The two buildings are significant landmarks on the south London roundabout which will now make way for towers of up to 35 storeys and a new shopping centre designed by Allies & Morrison.

The scheme, on two sites totalling 3.6ha, will include 979 homes, a new college building for the University of the Arts London, leisure and office space and a new station.
