Five architects working on 600-homes scheme in South-east London

Southwark Council has approved a 600-home, mixed-use development that will form the next stage of the regeneration of the Aylesbury Estate in South-east London.

Notting Hill Genesis, the social landlord behind the application, still needs final approval for the scheme, known as phase 2B, from the mayor of London. It also needs to agree section 106 contributions with the council.

The £170m development will be made up of five buildings that have been designed by five different architects – Haworth Tompkins, Maccreanor Lavington, East, Sergison Bates and Architecture Doing Place which led by former estate resident David Ogunmuyiwa.

Project manager is Arcadis with M&E consultant Max Fordham, structural engineer Price & Myers with Aecom as principal designer.

Construction will start this spring with Erith set to carry out site preparation and demolition work.

Architects HTA Design and Hawkins Brown are working on the first phase of plans which will include a 20-storey tower and more than 900 homes built.

The original 2015 outline approval for the Aylesbury Estate regeneration envisaged that more than 3,500 homes would be built, spread over four phases. The estate, which was constructed between 1966 and 1977 had a total of 2,700 homes.
