128 – 150 Blackfriars Road, London
London Borough of Southwark
56 units for social rent
Development Agreement under S106
336 new homes were built around two new public squares, on Blackfriars Road in Southwark.
This new development, known as Blackfriars Circus, is now a bustling tree-lined boulevard, with an array of new shops, cafés and leisure facilities. The development also benefitted from 56 new units within Block A dedicated to social rent.
There are roof-top gardens, offering residents spectacular views across the London skyline.
The area has been regenerated to make it more amenable for pedestrians. Pavements have been widened, trees planted and a new cycle highway built to take cyclists from Elephant & Castle to King’s Cross safer and speedier than before.
