South Bank Tower, Stamford Street, SE1
Retaining and transforming a 1970s office tower, originally designed by Richard Seifert, this project will provide a residential-led development that incorporates retail, leisure and office accommodation, and an enhanced public realm. Residential units will be finished with full-height windows to maximise views, serviced by a range of on-site amenities including a swimming pool and roof gardens. The innovative scheme retains the existing exterior vertical expression and extends the 30-storey building by 11 floors. Targeting a BREEAM Excellent and Code for Sustainable Homes 4 rating, the reuse of the existing structure is anticipated to save in excess of 6,000 tonnes of CO2.
The scheme is scheduled to complete Q1 2016.
