Work To Start On Oakmayne Plaza

Having spent years in development hell, work could finally be soon to start on Oakmayne Plaza, one of the key developments in London's Elephant and Castle area.

The site sits on a vacant lot to the immediate south of New Kent Road, sandwiched between there, Elephant Road, and the Heygate Estate and will mark the extension of the immediate town centre of Elephant and Castle out by another block to the east.

Following the recent involvement of Delancey in the scheme as one of the developers in addition to Oakmayne Properties, work is due to begin in April 2011 with preparatory work in the form of the first piling running from May to July 2011. Following that, from September 2011 until February 2012 the site will be fully excavated to clear out the necessary area for the buildings to sit on. This will be followed by a three year construction programme that will see completion of the project in 2014.

Oakmayne Plaza consists in the main of three buildings that range from 23 to 15 floors. Dominated by residential uses, the scheme will have 312 apartments for the private market, plus accommodation for 275 student rooms. A new cinema is expected to be built on the site too which will replace the demolished Erno Goldfinger designed Odeon that stood nearby. In addition to this there will be a new 214 bedroom hotel, and 2,300 square metres of retail of which Sainsbury's is expected to be the anchor tenant.
