Event description


The IStructE London Young Members’ Group is organising a site visit to Southbank Place near Waterloo on Wednesday 6th December 2017, PM.

Joint venture developers Canary Wharf Group and Qatari Diar have unveiled the proposed plans which will re-vitalise the area with high quality architecture and much improved public spaces.

A mix of offices, homes and retail space will integrate with open and attractive public areas, while new pedestrian routes will connect nearby Waterloo Station with the South Bank of the River Thames. A widened Chicheley Street will open up the approach to the London Eye, while a ‘city square’ at the heart of the scheme will provide open space and help people move around the area.

The well-known Shell Centre Tower will remain the centrepiece of the new site, occupied by Shell which is taking a further 245,000 sq ft of space. The Tower will be complemented by eight new buildings, one of which will incorporate new offices and trading floors for Shell. Approximately 800,000 sq ft of office space (including the Shell Centre Tower), along with around 80,000 sq ft new retail units, restaurants and cafés, will be accompanied by approximately 800,000 sq ft of residential space incorporating up to 790 new homes, including affordable housing. The development is planned for completion in 2019.

Due to the nature of the site, we can only offer 15 places on this visit. For fairness, the places will be allocated at random to those that sign up.

Final places will be announced on 29th Nov.
