42-storey Elephant tower approved
22 March 2006
London SE1 website team

A 42-storey tower at the Elephant and Castle has been granted planning permission by Southwark Council, as well as a new hotel and cinema on Elephant Road.

On Tuesday night Southwark Council approved two large developments at the Elephant and Castle which the council say will play a major role in the area’s £1.5 billion regeneration.

Multiplex, in joint venture with Espalier, will create a 147-metre, 42 storey residential tower on the Castle House site at the top of Walworth Road with 30 per cent affordable housing. The scheme will integrate wind turbines to bring energy costs down by 40 per cent for each of the 408 apartments.

Should be u/c by the end of the year apparently.

Love that tower has a very sinister look to it. Also looks like the HQ of some evil mastermind.
