Stanhope won a competitive bid to become joint venture partner with the NHS on this key site within the north of Lambeth, behind St Thomas’ Hospital. The proposals will see redevelopment comprising of a series of buildings to contain offices, residential, and outpatients building for Guys and St Thomas’ Hospital, as well as retail and community floorspace.
There are a number of challenges with the site which include the re-provision of existing residential accommodation, massing, design, heritage, including townscape views, transport and the retention of existing trees on the site.
We are currently working with a comprehensive consultancy team including AHMM architects to create a new commercial neighbourhood for central London. It is intended that the office accommodation will be occupied by state of the art health technology type businesses(Med-tech), a key objective for the NHS and Lambeth Council who are keen to retain and improve on this offer within the borough SME and affordable workspace for local businesses will also be provided.
The proposals are currently being progressed via detailed discussions with officers at Lambeth and the GLA, and local stakeholders, with the intention to submit an application during the course of 2021.
