The Westminster City Council has granted Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners planning permission for their competition-winning scheme to redevelop part of The London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) campus. The largest project in the school’s 120-year history, the “Center Building Redevelopment” plan will replace an existing cluster of LSE buildings along Houghton Street - Clare Market, The Anchorage, the East Building and part of St. Clements - with a modernized, sustainable and multifunctional academic building.

Director of Estates Julian Robinson said: “This is a major milestone in our ambitious program of improving facilities and accommodation at LSE.  We are a world class university and the Centre Buildings Redevelopment will provide a new building and public spaces which will reflect this. Its sustainable design will complement and enhance our surroundings while still being uniquely identifiable as LSE.”

Demolition will begin this summer, and completion is scheduled for late 2018. RSHP’s £120 million scheme, which was chosen ahead of a competition shortlist of five international teams, aims to animate the street with a new public square and the integration of public programs at its lower levels, including a restaurant, auditorium and large lecture theaters.
