A new central London development has just been announced by the Canary Wharf Group and Qatari Diar. Southbank Place launches today its registrations of interest to UK buyers, while the sales launch will follow in September. The project comprises seven new buildings, including a striking 868 residential properties. The mixed use development will also feature retail, hospitality and public spaces. Several high profile architects are involved in the designs, including Squire & Partners, Kohn Pederson Fox, Patel Taylor, Stanton Williams, GRID and Townshend Landscape, while interiors will be created by Goddard Littlefair and Johnson Naylor. Framing the existing Shell Tower, the development sits at the heart of London’s South Bank - a strategic location for culture, work and shopping.
