Height and context

We are very aware of the sensitivities around height at Elizabeth House. We are proposing a building that is comparable in height to the existing consented scheme and Southbank Place development.

We have been able to identify a number of areas where we can create additional workspace without negative impacts on local or strategic views, particularly towards the eastern-end of the site by shaping the building around the Waterloo Curve.

We are engaging with all key stakeholders on our proposals – including Lambeth Council and the Greater London Authority as well as Historic England and Westminster City Council – and will be sharing more detail on local and City views as part of the next phase of consultation.

It is our intention to submit proposals that are capable of securing planning permission so we can deliver these benefits as quickly as possible.

Do you have any comments on our plans for new public spaces at the lower levels, including Victory Arch Square, the Waterloo Curve, the new public space between York Road and the Waterloo Curve, and the Garden Promenade?

Would you be likely to visit the Waterloo Curve and if so, would this be for eating and drinking, shopping or as a through-route to Leake Street and Lower Marsh?

Please tell us how you might use the Waterloo Curve:

We are currently thinking of a name for the new public square that links the Waterloo Curve to York Road – do you have any suggestions?

Do you support our use of the Elizabeth House site to focus on new office accommodation and job creation, together with retail and other uses on the lower levels?
