Contributing to Lambeth Council’s aspirations for a new district centre

The new proposals contribute towards the creation of a district centre in Vauxhall, in accordance with the aspirations set out in the Vauxhall Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) and Lambeth Local Plan, by providing an active and welcoming destination for Vauxhall and creating a more defined public and pedestrian arrival space near the Vauxhall interchange.

Contributing to employment and jobs in the borough

The new proposals prioritise increased office and commercial space alongside a new landmark hotel which will be a major boost for Vauxhall and will make a significant contribution to providing employment opportunities in the borough on completion. The proposed scheme is estimated to create approximately 2,000 jobs across hospitality, retail, building management and office-based sectors.

Est. 1,450 office jobs • Est. 500 hotel jobs • Est. 50 jobs from retail and building management

Enabling TfL’s gyratory removal and bus station scheme

TfL have separate plans to remove the gyratory and build a new bus station scheme to transform the street-level environment at Vauxhall. The two schemes are independent of each other; however, the delivery of TfL’s scheme requires land owned by VCI on the island site and both parties are working closely to ensure an integrated regeneration solution for Vauxhall.

Providing new homes

Whilst the proposals are employment-led, they also deliver 257 new mixed-tenure homes, including affordable homes.

Responding to the emerging Vauxhall cluster

The new buildings have been designed to work better with the emerging Vauxhall cluster of tall buildings. The consented scheme placed a taller building to the north, furthest away from the tall building cluster, and a shorter building nearest to the cluster. The new proposals seek to reverse this arrangement, working with the height of the other proposed developments in the area and improving the scheme’s relationship to key listed buildings and conservation areas.

Creating a new public square

The new public square will be a generous public space, next to the primary pedestrian route from Vauxhall Station to the Linear Park and the Opportunity Area to the south, and adjacent to where TfL’s new bus stops will be located on Bondway. It will provide an active new space for Lambeth residents and workers, close to amenities and the transport interchange.

The design of the public realm seeks to create a legible and accessible streetscape around the perimeter of the island site, improving pedestrian connections throughout the area.
