Urban Catalyst, the company working on the scheme for Southwark Council, have brought in Munkenbeck & Marshall to draw up new plans for the 25 million development, replacing Arup Associates.

Urban Catalyst chief executive Ken Dytor told trade Journal Building Design that the change of architects "was a very amicable arrangement" and "not a falling out."

Changes to the previous scheme involve a consolidation and reduction in the height of the three main blocks, and there are also plans to introduce an open-air cinema or theatre.

A newsletter issued by Urban Catalyst in January says that nusinesses and organisations occupying space in the scheme will pay a service charge to support community activities, and there are plans to hold local markets on two further days a week, in addition to the established Friday antiques market.
