U+I selected to redevelop Albert Embankment

01.04.16

We are delighted to have been selected by the London Fire and Emergency Planning Authority (LFEPA) as their development partner at 8 Albert Embankment.

This central London site which overlooks the Thames and the Houses of Parliament is teeming with history and importance. First constructed in 1937, this Grade II listed was originally the headquarters of the London Fire Brigade before becoming the home to Lambeth fire station. Our plans for the site will take the fire station into the next chapter of its life, completely redesigning the space to create a modern, fit-for-purpose fire station and training yard.

Our plans for 8 Albert Embankment, designed by Fred Pilbrow and Partners will also see the London Fire Brigade museum, formerly located in Southwark, reopened with an expanded collection that tells the story of firefighting from the Great Fire of London to present day.

A Public Private Partnership project (PPP) with LFEPA, 8 Albert Embankment will add to our track record of mixed-use regeneration projects with public bodies. These include The Deptford Project, which has rejuvenated Deptford high street in partnership with Lewisham Council, and Clapham One which delivered a new library and health centre for Clapham in partnership with Lambeth Council.

We are excited to now start to progress our plans, engaging with the local community to deliver a mixed-use regeneration that breathes new life into the site and creates a new landmark for London.
