Description of Sea Containers House
Sea Containers House is a 224,000sq ft office/leisure development in London SE1.
Sea Containers House was originally built as a hotel but became an office building in the mid 1980s.
In September 2014 Mondrian London hotel will open here.
Archlane Ltd's proposals to refurbish Sea Containers House have been given the goahead by Southwark Council's planning committee.
Designed by TP Bennett, the plans will see the extensive external and internal refurbishment of Sea Containers House, including refurbished office spaces and a new, Grade-A modern office building, a high-end 356-bedroom lifestyle destination hotel as well as restaurants and cafés along the River Walkway to reinvigorate the local area.
The plans will also revitalise and open up public areas around the building, including the River Walkway, and a new route will be created between the River Walkway and Upper Ground on the west side of Sea Containers House.
The refurbished Sea Containers House and new office building will create employment space for around 2,800 new jobs in the office space, hotel, restaurants, cafés and rooftop bar. This represents a 16% increase on the number of jobs currently on site. An estimated 500 jobs will also be created during the construction and refurbishment work.
The work started in 2012 and be completed in 2014.
