Bankside has been transformed in recent
decades with its former power station reborn as the Tate Modern art gallery and major developments having risen near the Thames.
The next step will be Bankside Quarter, near Blackfriars Bridge. This is a massive £1.3 billion redevelopment of the former Sampson and Ludgate House site for a 13,064sq m mixed-use project by a consortium of partners including Native Land, Temasek, HPL and Amcorp Properties.
The new riverside landmark will feature nine buildings, including a series of towers, the highest of which will reach 49 storeys. The project is intended to reconnect both the eastern and western sides of the railway viaduct and the space between Tate Modern and Blackfriars station.
Bankside Quarter will occupy a 2.14-ha site, with permission granted for 26,756sq m of grade A office space together with 2,322.5sq m of ground floor retail, 1,486sq m of cultural facilities and 489 homes.
