Architects behind plans for one of London’s most ambitious office and homes developments have revealed how they will transform the local area with the scheme.
The Victoria Transport Interchange project, or ‘VTI2′, was given the green light by councillors last month and is designed to dramatically improve one of the capital’s key transport hubs.
Public areas and new pedestrian routes will be part of the property development, focused on Victoria Station and developed by Land Securities.
Three architectural companies are involved in the design, which is set to feature six towers with retail property, apartment homes, and premium office space.
One of the trio, Kohn Pederson Fox (KPF), revealed this week how the scheme would start to take shape.
The firm said: “The buildings will cater for a variety of uses appropriate to this inner city location including office, retail, residential (with 25 per cent affordable housing) and a public library.”
The other two architectural companies involved are Benson & Forsyth and Lynch Architects.
KPF said the ‘run down and tired’ area around the development site would be transformed and a number of existing buildings would be demolished, apart from those which are listed property.
Despite an ongoing slowdown in the property sector, areas of the UK, including London, are still in desperate need of new homes .
