Muse Developments has submitted planning applications for a major Brixton town centre redevelopment called ‘Your New Town Hall’.
The project will provide around 600 new jobs including 35 apprenticeships and work placements.
The applications follow twelve months of design work and two stages of public consultation in summer and winter 2014.
The planning applications, for ‘The Triangle’ and ‘Olive Morris House’ sites facing onto Brixton Hill, are part of a project which will ultimately reduce Lambeth Council’s core office buildings from 14 to 2, saving taxpayers at least £4.5million a year.
Following a successful selection process, Muse signed an agreement with Lambeth Council in April 2014 to deliver the project.
Thomasin Renshaw, development director at Muse Developments, said: “The decision to dispose of ageing and expensive buildings the Council no longer needs, and use the proceeds to bring much-needed new homes and jobs to the borough demonstrates Lambeth’s common-sense approach to development.
“The project includes an exciting refurbishment of the Town Hall to enable more community use, and new fit-for-purpose offices that will improve services for residents.”
Proposals are for the redevelopment of the Town Hall Parade, Hambrook House and Olive Morris House along with the refurbishment of Ivor House and the Town Hall to deliver 194 new homes including 40% affordable housing.
