A “leading housing specialist” has unveiled their plans for a new enterprise centre at the heart a new Lambeth Town Hall complex.
It is one of three potential plans for the regenerated Town Hall area being considered by Lambeth council.
A large new enterprise centre, next to the existing town hall on Brixton Hill, would “celebrate the energising vibe of Lambeth”, according to developers United House, who hope to construct the scheme together with Lambeth council.
A rather slick slideshow was shown to a meeting at the Ritzy Cinema today, showing artists impressions of the plans, and giving hints at how the historic town hall itself might change under the development.
It appears that Olive Morris House would be demolished and rebuilt as housing under the wider plans (see below). Another large block of flats looks destined for the site currently occupied by Hambrook House.
United House describes itself on its website as a “leading housing specialist, constantly delivering innovative projects across London and the south.” It goes on: “What really sets us apart is our ability to provide unique products and services as a contractor, developer and investor.”
Lambeth council say they want as many people as possible to comment on the various proposals, and all three schemes have been published on the Future Brixton wesbite here.
For now, you can see the slick United House promotional slideshow below. Watch out for rather tiresome phrases like “creating community space and feel good vibes”. What do you make of the plans? Leave a comment below, Tweet us or email firstname.lastname@example.org with your views.
