Vauxhall, Nine Elms and Battersea are being regenerated. The regeneration area spans 561 acres (227 hectares) of central London on the south bank of the River Thames – walking distance to the Houses of Parliament, Sloane Square, Tate Britain, Battersea Park and The Kia Oval cricket ground.
The district extends from Lambeth Bridge in the north, to Chelsea Bridge in the south, covering the Albert Embankment, Vauxhall and a large slice of north Battersea. Westminster lies directly opposite on the north bank of the Thames. It is by far the largest regeneration zone in central London and includes the last remaining industrial stretch of the South Bank.
This prime, central London location on the Thames riverside has attracted billions of pounds of private sector investment and an area-wide regeneration programme is already transforming the district on an extraordinary scale. Over the next decade and beyond Nine Elms on the South Bank will fulfil its full potential as a new residential and business district.
When the Northern Line Extension opens in 2020, journey times to the West End and to the City will be less than 15 minutes. Its location and improved transport connections is making Nine Elms on the South Bank one of the most accessible parts of London.
