Ambitious plans next to Waterloo Station include 33-storey residential tower and two office blocks of 28 and 12-storeys

Architect Allies and Morrison has unveiled these images of a major £1bn mixed-use scheme on London’s south bank.

The development, on the site of Elizabeth House adjacent to Waterloo station, will include a 33-storey residential tower for 280 flats. It will also include two office blocks, one 28-storeys high, the other 12 storeys. The plans will provide more than 130,000m2 of office, residential and retail space.

Allies & Morrison won the scheme in February 2006, beating off stiff competition from Make Architects, KPF and Foreign Office Architects. Allies & Morrison partner Graham Morrison said: “He added: “The two office buildings and single residential building will stand within a transformed public realm and contribute to the growing and distinctly informal composition of the existing buildings that signal the significance of Waterloo’s regeneration.”

Client P&O Estates and Morgan Stanley Real Estate submitted a planning application for the development last week.
