Hannibal House, the office block above the Elephant & Castle Shopping Centre, is now 100 per cent occupied as negotiations about the redevelopment of the site continue.

The London School of Management and Science has taken the entire fourth floor of Hannibal House.

London School of Management and Science (LSMS), a BAC accredited institution, offers a range of undergraduate, postgraduate, and professional courses in business, management, accounting and computing. The college is a partner institution of Glyndŵr University (University of Wales) and has more than 600 students.

"The London School of Management and Science has recognised the benefits of the centre with its variety of facilities as well as its excellent transport links," says James Stockdale, development manager at St Modwen.

"Hannibal House provides the ideal location in London's zone one for organisations looking to develop their businesses."

Terence Moore of the London School of Management and Science said: “Hannibal House proved an obvious choice for us. The offices are ideally located for our students while the shopping centre below provides all the facilities they need.”

Last week Southwark's cabinet member for regeneration, Cllr Fiona Colley, claimed that the council's development partner Lend Lease and St Modwen are close to signing a memorandum of understanding about the future of the land occupied by the Elephant & Castle Shopping Centre and Hannibal House.

Meanwhile Lib Dem councillor Geoffrey Thornton complained that the future of the shopping centre remained uncertain: "shoppers are confused and traders are unsure," he said.
