Massive in scale, rich in opportunity; Nine Elms, and London itself, will never be the same again.
At 195 hectares, Nine Elms on the South Bank is by far the largest regeneration zone in central London and includes parts of the London boroughs of Wandsworth and Lambeth. The area includes more than 20 interconnected development sites which have begun to transform the face of this largely industrial district.

Transport for London is finalising plans for an extension of the Northern line which would provide two new Tube stations in Nine Elms. This will create a direct link from Nine Elms to Westminster (8 minutes), The City (12 minutes) and Leicester Square (14 minutes).
A planning application is now being prepared under the Transport and Works Act for submission in 2013. This would mean the extension could be open in 2019.
Vauxhall is being restored to the living district centre it once was. Instead of a congested traffic gyratory, the area will be transformed by the creation of a recognisable ‘heart of Vauxhall’ with new walkways lined with shops, more jobs, a variety and choice of new homes and public places for people to enjoy. A new cluster of tall buildings is now taking shape here which will make an exciting addition to the central London skyline.
Nine Elms on the South Bank will become a green and walkable district with active, thoughtfully designed public space. A new section of riverwalk will run through the regeneration area, brought to life with an array of riverside shops, cafes, restaurants, art galleries, parks and public squares. A linear park will sweep through the centre of the district creating a beautiful green corridor between Battersea Power Station and Vauxhall Cross.
