Construction News

Developer Downing has started work on site at two mixed-use student development schemes in Lambeth, south London. The two schemes are together worth £285m.

In the larger one, Downing is delivering a 37-storey student tower and a six-storey commercial office scheme in Vauxhall. The £250m development on Miles Street, off South Lambeth Road, will create 841 student beds, including a range of studios and en-suite rooms with a mix of five, six and seven bedroom cluster units. The scheme (pictured below) will also incorporate a ground-floor café.

Elsewhere in Lambeth, Downing is delivering a £35m student accommodation scheme in the historic Lambeth Palace Conservation Area. The scheme will provide studio accommodation for 133 students.  The building will also include 12,000 sqft of new commercial space that will become the new headquarters for a charity.
