The Greater London Authority Regeneration Team has this week awarded architect Witheford Watson Mann a £25,000 design study contract for Elephant and Castle, London.
The architect will look at options for the removal of the northern roundabout to be replaced with a four arm junction with public spaces.
The contract was awarded using a single source procurement model, which is being processed. The architect is expected to report to the Elephant and Castle Strategic Stakeholder Group at its next meeting on 25 March.
Elephant and Castle was identified as an “opportunity area” in the London Plan. It is believed to have the capacity to provide 5,000 jobs and 4,000 new homes.
