NEO Bankside

This scheme lies in the heart of the Bankside area of London, where a wide range of cultural, business and residential communities and a diverse and thriving built environment have co-existed in an intricate web of streets dating from medieval times. The site is located close to the River Thames and is directly opposite the west entrance to the Tate Modern and the site of the proposed extension to the museum.

The development will provide 229 residential units in five separate buildings ranging from six to 24 storeys. The total residential provision of the scheme covers 28,600 m², with retail units provided at ground level with a total area of 1,044 m² and additional storage in the basement.

Southwark Council granted planning permission for the development in June 2007. Site clearance and preparation was completed during 2008 and work has started on the first phase.
