LAMBETH COUNCIL IS CONSIDERING THE REDEVELOPMENT PROPOSALS FOR 8 ALBERT EMBANKMENT.

These include a new modern fire station, part of a programme of renewal by the London Fire Brigade designed to provide maximum safety for Lambeth residents. A new permanent home for the London Fire Brigade Museum will play an essential role in celebrating London’s rich history and will educate people of all ages about fire safety.

These new facilities will be funded by wider plans for the site which include 443 new homes (148 of which will be shared ownership and low-cost rent) and work space to support over 1,250 jobs. This will also generate a significant capital receipt for the London Fire Brigade to invest in other facilities across London, including Brixton and Clapham fire stations in Lambeth.

A NEW MODERN FIRE STATION PROVIDING THE VERY BEST FIRE SAFETY FOR LAMBETH

Originally built in 1937, the fire station now requires
significant modernisation to accommodate specialist
vehicles, maintain high operational standards and help keep Londoners safe long into the future.

The investment will create new, larger and improved
training facilities for firefighters, as well as restoring the
listed drill tower as an on-site training facility. It will deliver
new accommodation to improve the working conditions
for firefighters and make the fire station more publicly
accessible, with a new entrance and community room for
local residents to use.

A NEW MUSEUM

A purpose built home for the London Fire
Brigade Museum, a major cultural asset in
Lambeth, including a new community room.

Celebrating the important role the Fire Brigade has played in keeping London safe, a new Museum on site will welcome more than 100,000 visitors per year making it one of London’s most popular specialist museums.

A SUSTAINABLE COMMUNITY

Lambeth High Street was once bustling
with industry and life – the proposals will
help recreate this thriving community

A place to live, work, eat, stay and visit –
featuring new workshops and retail spaces,
centred around landscaped integrated public
realm, together revealing the site to residents
and visitors alike, opening up a part of
London that’s been hidden for decades.

CREATING NEW JOBS

Over 1,250 jobs and 700 jobs during construction.

From the 700 jobs that will be provided through the
construction process, the scheme is focused on
economic sustainability and job creation.

Micro, small and medium sized enterprises will
sit alongside and facilitate bold new start-ups,
fostering collaboration and innovation, making for a
comprehensive employment ecosystem that works
for the Borough and beyond. In addition, at the heart
of the scheme is a landmark hotel, meaning further
service sector jobs will be created.

443 NEW HOMES

Providing places for Londoners to live
affordably is at the heart of the plans for
8 Albert Embankment.

Our development proposals will see the
building of 443 new homes, 148 of which
will be shared ownership and low-cost
rent. This represents 35% affordable
housing across the scheme.
