Two popular local restaurants have signed contracts to open new premises at Elephant Park.
Ecuadorian restaurant, Miko’s, will move from the Elephant & Castle shopping centre, into a 1,200 sq ft space at 17 Sayer Street. One of few operators in London that specialise in this particular Latin American cuisine, Miko’s focusses on traditional and affordable dishes, including an array of soups, rice, and seafood dishes.
Bayroot is set to open a 620 sq ft restaurant at 15A Sayer Street, bringing unique Lebanese flavours to Elephant Park. Adding to their existing restaurant in Camberwell, the brand will offer their menu favourites such as mezze, grilled meats, and wraps, combining ingredients sourced locally with those imported from Lebanon.
Both restaurants are due to open in Spring 2020, and will join an impressive line-up of international cuisine at Elephant Park. Recent openings include Ethiopian and vegan eatery Beza, Japanese tonkotsu specialist Koi Ramen Bar, and most recently, authentic Caribbean restaurant Tasty Jerk. Pan Asian operator Pot & Rice is set to launch later this month.
Guy Thomas, Head of Retail at Lendlease, said: “Having local businesses at Elephant Park has always been one of our key objectives so we’re very pleased that Miko’s will be opening their new premises with us, and that Bayroot’s second branch in the area will bring their superb brand of Middle Eastern cuisine.”
Lenin Erazo, Founder of Miko’s, added: “Our food has proven hugely popular with visitors to Elephant & Castle; we bring the best tastes of Ecuador and have built-up loyalty through our authenticity. We were keen to stay within this local community as it’s where we founded the restaurant, so we are delighted with the new restaurant space in Elephant Park, and the opportunity Lendlease has provided to us.”
Yasser Elmoussa, Founder of Bayroot, commented: “Elephant Park is quickly becoming a destination for world flavours, and our traditional Lebanese dishes will sit perfectly amongst the other restaurants here. We are well-known in Elephant & Castle – we have been just down the road in Camberwell for over five years and cannot wait to bring some Middle Eastern spice to Elephant Park.”

LEND Lease, the integrated property and infrastructure group, will put 360 new homes on sale to the general public this week as the regeneration of the Heygate Estate in Elephant & Castle, Central London, moves on to its next stage.
The new homes represent the first phase of the Heygate Masterplan – now named Elephant Park – for which Lend Lease received outline planning consent from the council last year.
The first phase of Elephant Park comprises 360 homes situated along the south-eastern part of the former estate. Ranging from three storey houses to a sixteen storey tower, one, two, three, and four-bedroom houses will be provided with a bias towards larger family homes. Prices for the first release start at £380,000 for a one-bedroom apartment.
All the homes will include a private balcony, terrace or private garden and residents will also have access to a rooftop terrace, offering panoramic views of the London skyline, including Canary Wharf, St Paul’s Cathedral and the City.
The homes will also showcase the latest sustainable building practices and innovations, including cross-laminated timber, a highly durable material which is designed to improve the energy efficiency of buildings. The homes will also feature water saving technology, with a strong focus on urban nature, including green roofs and green walls.
Pascal Mittermaier, Lend Lease’s Project Director for Elephant & Castle, said: “Elephant & Castle is fast-becoming one of the most sought after places to live in London and the homes we are creating at Elephant Park will be some of the most sustainable and energy efficient ever built in Britain.”
“In addition to the new homes we are delivering here, the Masterplan will also create Central London’s largest new park in 70 years and will implement significantly enhanced transport infrastructure.”
“The rapid transformation of Elephant & Castle demonstrates Lend Lease’s ability to deliver some of the most complex and large-scale urban regeneration schemes in the world.”
Elephant Park’s Zone 1 location makes it one of the best-connected places in the capital. In addition to two tube lines (Bakerloo and Northern), it also benefits from proximity to a mainline train station and 28 bus routes. It is a six minute tube journey to the City and 11 minutes to the West End.
This latest milestone builds on the strong progress that has already been made at Elephant & Castle, including the successful launches of Lend Lease’s first two residential developments last year. One The Elephant, a landmark, 37-storey tower comprising 284 new homes and Trafalgar Place – a 235-unit development – are both now under construction.
Construction of these homes will also create job and training opportunities for local people, including 20 apprenticeships, 38 short courses and at least 44 full-time jobs. Architects for this phase of the project are Maccreanor Lavington Architects and the public realm designers are Gillespies.
Lend Lease has a 50-year track record of building and managing residential developments across the world. It has built thousands of homes in Britain, including 2,818 units at the London 2012 Athletes’ Village, and started selling homes in the capital directly to the public under its own brand last year.
In addition to the regeneration of Elephant & Castle, Lend Lease is also delivering The International Quarter – the new £1.3 billion commercial district at Stratford City in the Olympic Park which will include 320 new homes. Lend Lease also won planning permission last year for two new sites at Battersea comprising 200 units at Cobalt Place and Victoria Drive respectively.
