As well as the new twelve storey structure approved at the obelisk end of Waterloo Road
, I see from yesterday's Guardian report
on the planned Tate expansion that "there are also plans for four residential blocks by Richard Rogers to the south-west of the site. "
Presumably this is the "Bankside 4" development be on the site of the current Holland Street
industrial units backing onto the Hopton Street
almshouses, as reported in the April 2004 "In SE1"
, and for which I have now realised there was an exhibition back in August.
Looking at Land Securities "Capital Commitment" website, it is described as a "landmark residential scheme with views over the Tate Modern
and the River Thames" which suggests it could be pretty big.
Anyone know whether there is now a planning application or some designs available?
And how many other such schemes are there about to be launched.
