Hungerford Bridge firm to tackle Bermondsey Spa

London SE1 website team

This week Southwark Council appointed Hungerford Bridge architects Lifschutz Davidson as lead designer on a major residential and office project for part of the Bermondsey Spa regeneration area, right on the edge of SE1.

The firm will produce a residential, office and mixed-use scheme on site D of the regeneration area that will bring vibrancy and activity to the currently underused Spa Road and Enid Street. Plans for the one-acre site include key-worker and low cost homes, retail units and new premises for the council's customer care centre and neighbourhood housing office.

Lifschutz Davidson will also work in partnership with Southwark Council to recruit a development team to undertake this multi-million project. Selection will begin this month with an appointment expected in April.

Commenting on the appointment Catherine Bowman, Executive Member for Regeneration, Southwark Council said: "The regeneration of Bermondsey Spa is a priority for the council. We are committed to creating quality homes and attractive open spaces that all the community can use. This appointment brings us one step closer to achieving this."

The Bermondsey Spa Masterplan, adopted by the Southwark Council in October 2000, outlines how the area can be developed to seize opportunities presented by its proximity to central London and new transport links such as the Jubilee line. Site D is the fourth stage in the 10 year programme to regenerate the area.
