Hamiltons win planning consent for Elephant and Castle tower

Saturday 01 Apr 2006

Planning consent was granted for Multiplex and Espalier’s pioneering 43 storeys 147m high residential building, providing an exciting and dynamic addition to London’s skyline. As part of the long awaited regeneration of London’s Elephant and Castle, acting as a catalyst for future development. Designed by Hamiltons Architects, the development comprises 408 high quality apartments with a mixture of tenures, together with a dynamic retail environment around its base. An insulated outer shield protects the intermediate venting panels and glazing within. Three 9m wind turbines top of the building generate sufficient power to drive the energy efficient lighting to the building, an integral part of the sustainable credentials for the building as a whole.
