Nine Elms on the South Bank will be a fantastic place to live, an internationally significant business district and a new centre for arts and culture in London. It will offer life changing opportunities to the area’s existing residents and will become home to another 30,000 people.
It will be a modern, exciting destination in central London offering 20,000 new homes, 25,000 new jobs post construction, education, green spaces and high profile visitor attractions.
Up to 3km of the Thames riverside is being opened up to the public, creating a brand new stretch of London’s South Bank. Vauxhall is being dramatically remodelled to create an attractive and pedestrian friendly environment with new and improved public spaces and better links to the river. A dynamic cluster of tall buildings will also take shape here creating an exciting new addition to the central London skyline.
A whole new town centre will be built around a redeveloped Battersea Power Station, New Covent Garden Market will be revitalised and new US Embassy will open in 2017. More than £1billion is being spent on new infrastructure including two new Tube stations and the creation of a new linear park sweeping right through the district from east to west.
The new Nine Elms on the South Bank will be characterised by striking modern architecture, attractive public space and spectacular views of the River Thames. It will be a busy, culturally stimulating place with a broad range of visitor attractions, shops, community facilities and internationally recognised landmarks. It will be a remarkable new addition to Central London.
