Scheme replaces earlier plans drawn up by Allies and Morrison

Landsec has appointed Bennetts Associates to design a 400,000ft2 mixed-use scheme in Bankside area of London.

The practice, currently working on Facebook’s new King’s Cross headquarters, along with AHMM, has been chosen to design two office buildings either side of a new pedestrian route off Lavington Street in Southwark.

Part of the scheme will involve using an existing printworks and include a mix of cafes, event spaces along with offices.

Landsec, which said the building will be fitted with carbon and energy reducing measures, is due to submit an application to local planners this year.

The scheme replaces an earlier one drawn up by Allies and Morrison after Landsec bought the site from another developer Gaterule last year.
