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.

Historic Timeline

1760

Blackfriars Bridge opens, the first bridge across the Thames at this location was completed to pioneering designs by Robert Mylne, the Edinburgh-born engineer and architect.

1860

The London, Chatham and Dover Railway Company contracted Joseph Cubitt and others in 1860 to design and build a new railway station to connect southern counties with the City of London – Blackfriars Bridge – which opened in 1864.

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.

2020

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

#BeyondBoundariesBankside is a new series of art installation around the Bankside area. @bankside_ london have collaborated with @tatecollective to bring five new artworks made by five emerging artists to animate the streets and spaces of the surrounding area.

This artwork is by @visser.ml and is called ‘Gastro Gusto’. The artwork invites us to think about the connection between food and community. The work explores the body - and public space - and creates an opportunity to eat, meet and reconnect with others.

#BeyondBoundariesBankside is a celebration of the character and creativity of our neighbourhood, inspiring people to reconnect with art and each other. Each artist was invited to produce a new commission by @bankside_london that responds to lockdown, the easing of restrictions and to create site-specific works informed by local #bankside stories.

This artwork is by @hanecdote and is called ‘He(art) is everywhere’. It is a real celebration of the character and creativity of Bankside. The series of motifs are dedicated to local history and take a deep look at the people and trades that have existed in the area.
