The existing 11-storey office building is occupied by the Department of the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs.

Architects Rogers Stirk Harbour & Partners have designed a new building for the site at the corner of Albert Embankment and Tinworth Street.

The scheme includes 46 homes, 9,000 square feet of office space and a ground floor cafe.

The proposed building is split into three sections of 21, 28 and 14 storeys.

St James says that it intends to fund a "significant upgrade" to Albert Embankment Gardens, the riverside green space opposite the development site, as a planning obligation.

The developer expects to submit a planning application to Lambeth Council in mid-May. If permission is granted in the autumn, work could start in the middle of next year.

An exhibition will be held at Vauxhall Christian Centre on Saturday 3 March
• Details of the scheme will be published next week at
