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

The first-of-its-kind Roman mausoleum has been unearthed at The Liberty of Southwark development site.
This remarkable find emerged during further excavation, a location just around the corner from Borough Market.
Led by the Museum of London Archaeology (MOLA) on behalf of Landsec and Transport for London (TfL), the archaeological investigations have unveiled the remains of a monumental tomb
that includes well-preserved walls, interior flooring, and even the lowest entrance steps of the structure. At the centre of it all lies a mosaic, surrounded by a raised platform that served as the final resting place for the deceased.
The level of preservation witnessed within this mausoleum makes it the most intact one ever discovered in Britain, an astonishing feat that has left researchers astounded.
Antonietta Lerz, Senior Archaeologist at MOLA, commented: “This relatively small site in Southwark is a microcosm for the changing fortunes of Roman London – from the early phase of the site where London expands and the area has lavishly decorated Roman buildings, all the way through to the later Roman period when the settlement shrinks and it becomes a more quiet space where people remember their dead. It provides a fascinating window into the living conditions and lifestyle in this part of the city in the Roman period.”
Marcus Geddes, Managing Director for Workplace at Landsec, said: “These extraordinary finds add great significance to the already culturally rich location of The Liberty of Southwark. We’re pleased to have worked together to ensure these finds were uncovered prior to our construction on site and we’re committed to celebrating Southwark’s heritage in the future of the development. We’ll continue to work with MOLA to preserve and protect the mausoleum and mosaics, and to display them for-the enjoyment of the public and our future office and retail customers at The Liberty of Southwark.”
Councillor Catherine Rose, Southwark Cabinet Member for Neighbourhoods, Leisure and Parks, added: “The rediscovery of this Roman mausoleum and mosaics is a testament to the rich tapestry of our past. It is a moment of pride for Southwark, as we pay homage to the ingenuity and artistic brilliance that graced our borough in the Roman times.
We are extremely grateful to the archaeologists, historians, and all those involved in unearthing these extraordinary remnants. As a council we are committed to preserving and promoting these archaeological treasures, ensuring that they are accessible to the local community and beyond for generations to come. This includes the recent discovery of a stone sarcophagus built into a mausoleum near Harper Road and a 19th-century sculpture of King Alfred in Trinity Church”.
Victoria Shin, Senior Property Development Manager at TfL, commented: "This new discovery builds on the exciting findings already uncovered and develops our understanding of the changing use of the site throughout the Roman period. It is key that as we bring forward new developments across the whole of London that we work hard with others to preserve and reflect the heritage of London whilst delivering the homes and jobs that London needs to continue to thrive in the future.”
