Two Fifty One, a mixed use scheme in Southwark’s regeneration area, has reached practical completion after four years of construction.
Standing at 131 metres tall, Two Fifty One is one of the tallest residential towers in London. The scheme’s main tower provides 338 apartments in a mix of tenures, together with a residents’ lounge, gymnasium, cinema, restaurant and meeting spaces, whilst the adjacent commercial building provides Cat A office space and a ground floor coffee shop. The area between the two buildings has been sympathetically landscaped and a full height ‘living wall’ adorns one side of the seven-storey commercial block.
Nick James, Director at McBains commented: “Having been involved in the project since its fruition we are delighted to have successfully delivered yet another significant mixed use scheme in Southwark.
“Two Fifty One exemplifies the growing appeal of this centrally-located borough and the need for new and improved housing stock.”
McBains provided project management, employer’s agent and MEP inspection services to the scheme.
The culmination of Two Fifty One follows on from the completion of Elephant One, another mixed use scheme in Southwark, last summer. The project, for which McBains provided project management, employer’s agent, architectural and MEP design services, delivered three towers providing 374 apartments, 270 student rooms and 12 commercial units – including an on-site Sainsbury’s superstore and GymBox.
