Nine Elms includes central London’s last remaining industrial district and is the final piece of the South Bank to undergo a wholesale transformation. At 227 hectares, it is far larger than Hyde Park and situated less than a mile upstream from the Houses of Parliament. Its vast brownfield sites are now being transformed to form a brand new residential and business quarter right in the heart of London. The increasingly vibrant Vauxhall sits at the heart of the district where a new cluster of tall buildings is now taking shape.
More than 42 interconnected development sites are transforming Nine Elms on the South Bank alongside major new improvements to local infrastructure. The process is well underway with at least half these schemes now on site or complete and more still coming through the planning pipeline.
Existing residents already benefit from a proximity to central London and good transport links. As the area develops new communities are being formed and improvements are being made to transport. Regeneration also brings new access to the Thames Path, new public space and a new 11-acre Nine Elms Park.
We are building a brand new central London district. Under-utilised industrial land is making way for new public squares, parks, schools, Tube stations, homes and businesses. It is becoming a strikingly modern addition to the cityscape and a new centre for culture on London’s South Bank. Our existing communities are benefiting from the new jobs and business opportunities this brings.
