Cluster Tucked In Southwark

Landsec has tucked planning permission for the redevelopment of Red Lion Court, Bankside under its arm. The project is part of Landsec’s scheme to create a 1m.sq.ft Southwark green office cluster.

The new Red Lion Court development will deliver 230,000sq.ft of grade A offices, retail and open public space on the banks of the Thames, adjacent to Borough Yards.

Floorplates at the Bjarke Ingels Group designed scheme will range from 18,000 to 26,600 sq.ft with access to outdoor spaces on every floor, an extensive communal roof terrace and views over the river into the City.

In line with Landsec’s sustainability strategy, Red Lion Court has been designed to be net zero in both construction and operation. By reusing part of the existing building and prioritising low carbon and recycled materials, Landsec will meet or exceed Greater London Authority and Southwark policy in terms of sustainability, biodiversity and energy efficiency.

Through the creation of a new pocket park and public garden, green roofs and generous planting, the development will lead to a substantial biodiversity net gain on site. The completed building will be fully electric and feature a sustainable urban drainage system which repurposes rainwater for future use. It will target WELL Core Platinum and BREEAM Outstanding.

Red Lion Court was designed by a team led by Bjarke Ingels Group. Landsec has appointed Savills and Cushman & Wakefield as leasing agents.
