Projects 72 Upper Ground, SE1
In November 2019, Mitsubishi and CO—RE secured one of the most sought after sites in central London with the purchase of ITV’s historic London Television Centre. Located on the Southbank and overlooking the river Thames – already a major destination for the arts and culture – the 2.5-acre site presents an opportunity to transform one of the most prominent and pivotal sites on the riverfront.
Designed by Make Architects, the proposals centre around a 26-storey office building that is connected to two buildings of 13 and 6 storeys. Alongside high-quality office space, including affordable workspace tailored to the needs of Lambeth’s emerging creative industries, the scheme will create new cafes and restaurants, cultural venues and green spaces.
The all-electric scheme is targeting net zero carbon in operation along with the highest BREEAM and WELL certifications. The future wellbeing of office workers will be prioritised by extending the workspace outdoors with external terraces and balconies overlooking the Thames, which give greater access to fresh air and natural light.
