Community is at the heart of Bankside Yards

Looking to the future with sustainable initiatives and affordable housing, whilst honouring the past and historic legacy of the site.

Bankside Yards ‘hypermixity’ of uses will contribute actively to the local community and economy. And its location at a nexus of London’s multi-modal transport network will encourage green and active travel, improving wellbeing and air quality.

London’s definitive cultural neighbourhood - Where people, business and the environment can thrive.

1891

The Bankside Power Station supplied electricity from 1891 to 1981. Originally a coal-fired power station until a new more efficient and less polluting oil-fired plant was built between 1947 and 1963.

Construction is underway to restore and connect the lost intersection between the South Bank and Bankside for the first time in 150 years.
