Breathe new life into a special part of Central London
Elephant and Castle has always been a special part of London. It’s a place with a vibrant history and an exciting future. Elephant Park’s new homes, shops, offices and restaurants are adding new energy to the Elephant. Mature trees and new, green, open spaces connected by tree-lined streets make this Central London’s new green heart, and one of the capital’s most exciting places to live, work or visit.
Four focus areas that guide Elephant Park's vision:
Central London & Local Spirit
Located in the heart of London, Elephant & Castle is a bustling hive of activity with its own unique identity, people and sounds. Elephant Park draws inspiration from this to create an environment that is welcoming to locals, newcomers and visitors alike. Thoughtfully designed public spaces coupled with an international host of food choices creates the ideal location to stop and lounge for a while.
Open & Welcome
Connected and open to the broader Elephant & Castle area, Elephant Park is creating more public spaces for the community to come together. There are spaces for everyone, whether you’re looking for a place to host a community gathering, space to exercise or walk the dog or simply somewhere to catch up with friends. Private communal areas within residential buildings expand the size of residents' new homes, whilst visitors have an extensive variety of retail spread across the area.
Greener & Sustainable
Beyond the sustainable design and building methods that are integral to the Lendlease approach to construction, Elephant Park has several initiatives to ensure that the local community can breathe easy in a green oasis. Elephant Park aspires to be net zero carbon in operation by the time the project completes. Achieving this through sustainable building, preservation and planting of trees, the development of a state-of-the-art combined heat and power (CHP) plant which provides to supply low-carbon heating and hot water to over 3000 homes, as well as to local businesses and community spaces.
Opportunities & Growth
Elephant Park is creating local opportunity for residents, workers and visitors, in the form of employment, skills and training, community initiatives and a place that gives back. Bringing together an understanding of the community through consultation and responding with specific programmes to create positive and lasting change.
