Vauxhall Cross Island Awarded Planning Permission

Responding to Lambeth council’s aspirations for a district
centre for Vauxhall in London, the design creates a vibrant new public square
adjacent to the busy rail, underground and bus interchange. The proposal also
accommodates TfL’s existing plans to upgrade the traffic gyratory and bus
station to provide greater accessibility and safety for all.

Comprising two towers connected by a 10-storey podium that
defines its streetscape, the 42-storey
(151m)   northern tower accommodates 257
apartments that includes 23 affordable homes. The 53-storey (185m) southern tower houses a
619-room hotel and office space.

Generating
approximately 2,000 new jobs within a mixed-use design that includes a new
public square, homes, offices, shops and a hotel, the design creates vital
civic space, amenities and employment for its growing community.

In awarding planning
permission, housing secretary Robert Jenrick explained he took into account inspector John Braithwaite’s
report that the quality of the architecture was undeniable and the scheme
outstanding in townscape terms, in addition to the
number of new homes that would be provided and the improvements to Vauxhall’s public realm.
