David Chipperfield receives planning permission for three-tower mixed-use project 

Southwark Council has granted planning permission for a landmark tower and two additional buildings designed by David Chipperfield Architects as part of the redevelopment of sites C & E at Canada Water.

Sellar Developments, a leading property company currently working extensively in Southwark, acquired the Decathlon site in 2011 and has been working with David Chipperfield Architects, Maccreanor Lavington Architects, landscape architects VOGT, and local community groups to develop proposals which make the most of existing waterside features and bring significant benefits to the local community.

The introduction of a high-quality mixed use development is part of Southwark Council’s plan to regenerate the wider area which will form a new town centre for Canada Water.

The three buildings comprise a long narrow block on pilotis, a medium-rise building and a slender landmark tower of 150m. They will be grouped around a soft landscape feature in a square bounded by perimeter blocks of the wider masterplan by Maccreanor Lavington Architects.

This open public space will serve as a new town square and a central pedestrian route, improving access to Canada Water.
