251 Southwark London. London. UK

ECA Developments/South Central Management
Building Construction
£125 million

Full project details

Two Fifty One, Southwark comprises a 40-storey residential tower, 72% of which is constructed off site, adjacent to an eight-storey commercial building. The first three floors of the tower will have retail and commercial uses with 335 residential apartments, split between shared ownership and private units. Residents will have access to a gym, cinema and various amenities, including landscaped gardens and panoramic views of London.

The integrated approach – supported by a longstanding relationship with ECA Developments, based on collaborative work on several key London projects since 2005 - involves direct delivery and collaboration through our in-house companies Crown House technologies, Explore Manufacturing, Expanded Group (on piling, substructure and superstructure) and Select Plant.

Public realm and streetscape gains

Retail and cafe spaces, as well as building entrance lobbies, provide active ground floor uses in both buildings. The planned relocation of bus routes and stands will also allow improvements to the public realm and pedestrian environment around the site.

Continuous improvement: added value

Building on recent achievements with ECA Developments and the team at Elephant One (Tribeca Square), innovative digital engineering techniques and project initiatives (eg advanced data exchange and component tracking) are streamlining the linkages between design, manufacture and build sequence ‒ promoting efficiency and delivering certainty.
