A series of new public spaces to help create a unique destination at Waterloo Station
Create a new Victory Arch Square in front of Waterloo Station to provide improved access for millions of passengers travelling between the UK’s busiest train station and the surrounding area.
Deliver the Waterloo Curve, a new pedestrian street lined with shops and cafes linking the new Victory Arch Square to Leake Street.
A bustling and vibrant ‘Big Hall’ filled with shops and places to eat, complementing the surrounding retail offer in the area.
Provide much needed capacity relief for Waterloo Station which is already bursting at the seams and is set to see an increase in visitor numbers to 130 million passengers a year over the next five years.
A beautiful new garden at promenade level accessed directly from the Concourse at Waterloo Station.
An enhanced pedestrian experience along York Road to reflect the wider changes taking place locally including at Southbank Place.
Significantly increased permeability through the site with two new links between York Road and the Waterloo Curve and to the South Bank and surrounding area.
Exceptional design which celebrates the architecture of engineering…
An innovative engineering solution which will be celebrated through its architectural form.
Office space focused on wellbeing, with every floor having a great view, access to a garden, a variety of different volumes and offering future-proofed flexible space.
Accommodating an ecosystem of different sized companies to create a mutually synergistic and supportive environment that encourages partnerships and collaboration.
A car free development. Given the location next to the UK’s busiest rail station with excellent transport connections, save for accessible parking spaces, there will be absolutely no parking provided as part of this development.
An integrated servicing solution to minimise the impact on the local area, all deliveries and servicing will be taken underground with an entrance on Leake Street.
Unlocking local opportunity and delivering economic benefits for Waterloo
Support approximately 13,000 jobs, almost five times more than currently supported on the site. Currently there are just 2,400 people employed on the site, and we would also create hundreds of jobs during the construction phase, including apprenticeships and opportunities for Lambeth residents.
Contribute approximately £60 million a year to the local economy. New workers within the building will contribute around £60 million a year to the local economy in Lambeth through spending in local shops and services such as those in Lower Marsh.
Generate significant additional revenue for Lambeth Council through business rates.
A substantial package of local benefits. These will be secured through a S106 agreement and CIL payment.
A package of employment and training support measures. Working with a number of local partners we will want to ensure local businesses and workers benefit from the new opportunities created as part of the proposals.
