Landsec has gained consent for the redevelopment of Red Lion Court, Bankside, part of a one million square foot development programme focused on building a green office cluster in London’s Southwark.

Red Lion Court will comprise 230,000 sq ft of offices, retail & open public space on the banks of the River Thames, next to Borough Yards.  The scheme, designed by the Bjarke Ingels Group, offers floorplates from 18,000 to 26,600 square feet all with access to outdoor spaces, a communal roof terrace and views over the river into the City

The building has been designed to be net-zero in construction and operation and by reusing part of the existing building and prioritising low carbon and recycled materials should meet or exceed the Greater London Authority and Southwark borough policy in terms of sustainability, biodiversity and energy efficiency. The building will also be fully electric and feature a sustainable urban drainage system which repurposes rainwater for future use.

Savills and Cushman & Wakefield have been appointed as leasing agents.
