New Lambeth Student Tower Green Lit

Downing Developments plans to construct a new 32-storey residential tower and swimming pool on South Lambeth Road in London have been approved by the local council.

The proposals by Feilden Clegg Bradley feature a tower with accommodation for 572 students plus what will be a new swimming pool and a leisure scentre.

Since it first surfaced, the pool has been lengthened to 25 metres due to the feedback given by early consultations making it a standard short course pool in length. The width of the pool will allow for three 6 metres lanes.
Furthermore there will be a 2.5 metre wide 18 metre long stretch to the pool which will be aimed at family use rather than more serious sport training.
In addition to the pool there will be a leisure centre. The leisure section of the project will present a glazed frontage to South Lambeth Road with the leisure facilities being used animate it to the passing traffic.

Above the leisure centre and pool will be a roof terrace for students with the main building towering over it and reaching a height of 96.5 metres. This will boast triangular floor plates with the rooms on each floor set off a central core. The communal area for each cluster will be placed on one of the corners of the triangle leading to three cluster flats per floor. Topping the tower will be a second accessible roof terrace.

Downing Developments hope to begin construction later in 2012, with the project being completed in time for the 2014 academic year.
