Lend Lease submits Heygate plan

Lend Lease submitted detailed plans yesterday to Southwark Council for the first 360 homes of its £1.5bn regeneration of Elephant & Castle. The application is for the first phase of development on the Heygate Estate, where Lend Lease plans to build 2,500 new homes over the next 15 years. The buildings will range from three to sixteen storeys. Lend Lease recently started work on the nearby 37-storey tower called One The Elephant.
