Bermondsey job will also include industrial and office space
Plans to build more than 450 homes across three blocks in south London have been given the green light by planners in Southwark.
The scheme by north London practice David Bonnett Associates at 310-330 St James Street in Bermondsey was rubber-stamped by the council shortly before Christmas.
Work will involve tearing down existing low-rise buildings and replacing them with three blocks of 7, 8 and 19 storeys.
In all, 467 flats will be built with the project also including light industrial and office space.
The scheme, which was recommended for planning, still has to be rubber-stamped by London’s mayor before work can begin in earnest, which is expected to be later this spring.
