The ongoing Elephant & Castle regeneration programme is one of the biggest and most ambitious ever undertaken in the capital. The project includes the creation of a pedestrianised town centre, market square, 5,000 new and replacement homes, up to 450,000 square feet of retail space, an integrated public transport hub and London’s largest new park for 70 years. As offices, shops, restaurants, cafes and bars move into the area it will become one of the city’s most thriving and sought-after urban quarters.
Living at BASE17, you will enjoy the best of all possible worlds: a friendly neighbourhood with a great community spirit in perfect harmony with twenty-first century urban lifestyles, right in the very heart of London.
Here, in the heart of SE17, you’ll discover a great mix of old London character, new London culture and stylish living. Traditional London pubs sit alongside sleek cool bars; world cuisine and fine dining restaurants rub shoulders with fast food joints. Theatres, museums, arts and crafts, stores and boutiques – it’s all here, right on your doorstep.
There are great travel connections available to you, the Elephant & Castle underground station which operates both Northern and Bakerloo line services is only a short walk from BASE17. For business commuting or fun days out in the capital, the City’s financial centre and the vibrant West End are only 10 minutes away by tube.
For rail travel nationally, or to Europe, there are easy underground links to King’s Cross, St Pancras, Waterloo and Paddington. Heathrow, Gatwick and London City airports are all within an hour’s travel of the tube station. The Elephant & Castle also has a National Rail mainline station, operating regular services to the South East and other regional destinations.
For local travel or as an alternative to underground or rail transport, London Buses deliver a frequent and speedy service to the surrounding areas of South London and all parts of the capital. The buses also link to major hubs for coach travel to national and international destinations.
Getting about by bike is ever more popular in London, so plans for a new ‘cycle superhighway’ linking Elephant & Castle to King’s Cross will bring real benefits in safety and travel time. Living in this up-and-coming neighbourhood you will see many changes taking place as the regeneration programme continues to improve the local landscape and facilities. The traditional sense of community and friendliness however remains undiminished. You’ll love London life at its best when you base yourself at BASE17.
