Voices in the Urban Forest - Lavington, Ewer, Great Guildford Streets
Work is underway to make improvements to the network of streets and spaces in the heart of Bankside, which include Lavington, Ewer, Great Guildford, America Streets, and parts of Union Street. The project seeks to improve connections south of Southwark Street, by working in partnership with a number of developers developing sites within the city blocks between Lavington Street and Mint Street Park.
The project will improve the quality of the public realm and connections between the different schemes and ensure that they connect more coherently with the wider neighbourhood. Developments include The Crane Building, Great Guildford Street Business Square, Farnham Place, Citizen M Hotel, Pure Bankside and Union Square sites. The project will also refurbish the Ewer Street and Great Guildford Street rail arches.
Architects Gort Scott have been appointed to coordinate the designs for the public spaces and landscape between all developments in the area, and develop proposals to achieve the highest quality of public realm along in the area.
