London and Continental Railways at Future Cities Forum
We are delighted to welcome London & Continental Railways' Development Director, Adrian Lee, who will be speaking at our September forum being held next to the O2 at Ravensbourne University London.
LCR Property is a skilled commercial developer and the UK Government's placemaking expert and has a 20-year track record of creating exciting new destinations for people to live, work and experience. The organisation takes the lead on regenerating complex sites, delivering homes and jobs and creating value from transport-linked land and property assets.
Skills in land assembly, place-making, commercial development and asset management at LCR have delivered some of the UK's most significant transport-linked regeneration schemes. LCR is working with public and private partners across the UK to unlock strategic sites, attract investment and bring forward development.
LCR uses its deep understanding of government bodies to bring stakeholders together and its commercial expertise to harness the best of the private sector.
One of LCR's current projects is Waterloo.London (pictured) which is bringing 135,000 sq ft of opportunity for retail, food and beverage along with leisure brands to the heart of the South Bank. Opening in Spring 2021, it will feature forty new glass-fronted units of various sizes across three floors, and will include internal malls as well as external-facing units along a new pedestrianised street, the Waterloo Curve.
Adrian says that Waterloo.London will give the 100 million annual passengers flowing through Waterloo station and 20 million tourists visiting the South Bank a reason to stay and spend. He also states that LCR has a long-term involvement in Waterloo, from master planning the station redevelopment to investing in the world's 'most democratic art gallery' in the regenerated Leake Street Arches, recently named in the top five most Instagrammed locations in the UK.
Adrian is also collaborating with Manchester City Council, U and I plc and Transport for Greater Manchester on the Mayfield Partnership to transform a derelict 24 acre site on the edge of the city centre for new homes, offices and retail.
