One of the most interesting property deals in Lambeth is between the local council and Canary Wharf Group. This will bring the redevelopment of the Shell Centre. In addition there will be other projects in the Borough, including 89 new homes at Lollard Street, Kennington. Of these 70 will be for council rent. There will also be 19 private homes.
How will the new building fit in?
The land in Kennington was formerly a nursery site. It has been successfully redeveloped and an award winning architect has designed the new low-rise scheme. One of the best touches is that the new development will be in warm brick. As a result it will fit perfectly into the area. This is very important because the neighbourhood is quite diverse, including period housing, loft conversions, a school from the 60s and tower blocks.
Many locals had concerns about the loss of the nursery. Luckily for them there will be a brand new one elsewhere in the area as part of another local development.
A great location
The development is fantastic because of the new homes. In addition the location is very attractive. It is close to Lambeth Walk, meaning there are lots of amenities on offer. On top of this the famous street has a number of notable buildings. A little to the west is the River Thames and lots more attractions, including Lambeth Palace, Garden Museum and the Palace of Westminster.
The area also has some great transport links. While there is a lot to do in the local area, commuters can get the Tube at Kennington and travel on the Northern Line. Vauxhall Station near the iconic MI6 building is served by the South Western Railway.
