A new house! More details will be available soon.
Landmark Court will provide more than 20,000 sqm (215,000sqft) of new office space, plus shops, restaurants, cafes, flexible small business workspace and new homes. This will bring more than 1,800 jobs to the area and 36 new homes, including 9 for social rent and a further 3 for discounted sale, equating to 40% affordable housing (by habitable room).
New pedestrian routes through the site will reinstate some of the medieval yards and lanes of historic Southwark, an approach strongly supported during public consultation. These lanes will be lined with shops, cafes, restaurants and market stalls to bring activity during daytime and the evening. Smaller retail units have been provided to encourage small independent traders, another key local priority.
The scheme has been designed by local architects Allies and Morrison, as a varied collection of contemporary brick buildings, sensitive to the scale of their surroundings and full of references to the historic Victorian industrial and commercial architecture of the area. 15 Southwark Street, derelict for many years, will be restored as part of the development.
Crossbones Graveyard, a post-medieval burial ground adjoining the site, will be safeguarded from development in the long-term. Today, it is home to a garden of remembrance, which has evolved over two decades as a contemplative space. U+I and TfL will continue to work in partnership with Bankside Open Spaces Trust (BOST), Crossbones Forum and Friends of Crossbones to deliver enhancements and a management plan for Crossbones, including longer opening hours and funding.
Transport for London (TfL), who own the land, appointed urban regeneration specialists U+I in 2017 to develop proposals for the site. If planning permission is granted, work will start in 2020 and is expected be completed in 2023/24.
The revised application has a number of changes:
Landmark Court is an under-utilised and undeveloped site by Borough Market, between Southwark Street, Redcross Way and Crossbones Graveyard.
It is approximately 0.7 acres in size and lies around 250m west of London Bridge rail station in the London Borough of Southwark.
The site was cleared in 1997 to provide a works site to facilitate the construction of the Jubilee Line extension and was subsequently used as a works site for the Thameslink 2000 upgrade works. It is currently in use for informal storage and for car parking.
At the heart of Southwark street lies a forgotten place. Lying dormant for over 30 years, Landmark Court has been unable to take its rightful place in this growing, thriving, vibrant area, where it is the last piece of the puzzle in one of London’s most successful streets.
We will pull down the hoardings and create a diverse mixed-use community that enriches this incredible area. A place for Londoners to live, work and come together.
Our creative and respectful plans for Landmark Court are born from our deep love of Southwark, for the streets that surround the site and the community that will come here.Disclaimer
