Southbank Place

Location London SE1

Status Consented 2014


Southbank Place is a masterplan designed for the site of the former Shell HQ in one of London’s most iconic cultural locations on the South Bank of the River Thames, overlooking Jubilee Gardens and the London Eye.


The consented plan creates new connections through the site which visually and physically link the River Thames to Waterloo Station, and enhance the existing range of cultural and open spaces stretching from Tower Bridge in the east to Westminster Bridge in the west. A mix of offices, private and affordable homes and retail space will link to new public open spaces, with the existing 1960′s Shell Centre Tower at its heart.


The development provides an opportunity to establish successful urban design principles and create a vibrant new quarter, responding to its context to create a world-class environment on this iconic stretch of the river.


Squire and Partners have masterplanned the site and are now working alongside Stanton Williams, KPF, Grid, Patel Taylor, Adamson Associates and Townshend Landscape Architects on the individual aspects within the scheme.
