Southwark Council seeking JV partners

This new masterplan by Make architects will reconnect the communities living and working around the heart of London's Elephant and Castle district, knitting them together into a vibrant new urban community. Transport routes will be rationalised in order to strengthen connections in a more pedestrian-friendly fashion, while a range of sensitively-massed and oriented buildings will define the civic heart of the area, interspersed with numerous parks and green spaces. Make architects were invited by Southwark Council to complete the masterplan initiated by Foster and Partners, and work began in May 2004 following a competitive tender. The Council are currently seeking joint venture partners to help deliver the masterplan, and the winning consortium will be decided in December of this year.
