 Welcome to the consultation on theredevelopment o Keybridge House,Vauxhall.
Keybridge House is owned by BT and theplanning application process is being managedby their property partner Telereal Trillium.The purpose o this exhibition is to show localresidents the proposals or the redevelopmento the site beore the submission o a planningapplication to Lambeth Council this summer.This is an opportunity or residents to providecomments and eedback, which will beconsidered as the scheme is worked up in detail.BT’s intention is to leave a positive legacy orVauxhall and Lambeth. However BT is not aproperty developer, so will not be undertakingthe redevelopment itsel. Instead it is intendingto sell the site on the open market in 2014/15with the benet o detailed planning permission
Keybridge House is now over sized or modernrequirements and is in the process o beingdecommissioned and partly relocated.The current building does not respond in anyway to its local context and is a monolithicstructure which presents the same exterior onevery side.

Design rationale
Keybridge House occupies a location between two contexts.1.
It is located within the Vauxhall, Nine Elms,Battersea (VNEB) Opportunity Area, which has beenidentied an area o major regeneration by the GLAand Lambeth and Wandsworth Councils. It will includethe regeneration o the whole area rom Battersea toLambeth Palace and includes a cluster o tall buildingsat Vauxhall.
It is located adjacent to the Vauxhall ConservationArea, which includes Vauxhall Park, a number o listedbuildings, and generally a lower scale o building.The scheme has thereore been developed to actas a link between the uture context o the VNEBOpportunity Area and the existing context o theconservation area.

Masterplan Proposals
The current proposals are or a mix o newdwellings supported by other uses includingsmall local shops and work units.
The scheme being consulted on includes:
379 apartments & maisonettes with sizes varyingrom studio and 1 bed fats to 4 bed maisonettesacross the site
5 new shops on South Lambeth Road and26,400 sq t o new work space
As well as providing the new homes, the scheme willprovide space or approximately 250 ull time retailand oce jobs
1.12 acres o open spaceThe Masterplan or the site also proposes to make thearea more accessible by improving the connectionsthrough the site. It will also create greater activity onthe street, particularly along South Lambeth Road.At the outset, consideration was given to whetherthe existing structure could be re-used. However, itsoon became clear that as Keybridge House was builtto house specialist equipment, it would be extremelydicult and expensive and would result in a verycompromised building which presents the same exterioron every side.
