Project Description

Wholesale redevelopment of the Elephant and Castle shopping centre providing a large urban regeneration mixed-use project, incorporating a new Elephant and Castle London Underground station entrance.

The Elephant & Castle Town Centre will include a variety of high street and independent retail, dining & leisure facilities that will become a focal point for the community. Built on the ground of the old Shopping Centre, the redevelopment will also see a new, cutting-edge London College of Communication (UAL) and close to 1000 new homes, 35% of which will be affordable.
