Multiplex unveils plan for 'green' apartments


MULTIPLEX has submitted plans for a £100 million 'green' skyscraper development, complete with integrated wind turbines, in south London.

The tower in Elephant and Castle will be a 147 m building over 42 floors with a smaller five-storey pavilion next door.

The development will include 310 private apartments and a further 98 affordable housing units.

Three wind turbines will produce enough energy to light the entire building.

The development is one of the first for Multiplex Living, the residential arm of the Australian company, which has also submitted planning proposals for a residential development in Kensington.

Construction work on the Elephant and Castle development should start in summer 2006. Completion is scheduled for December 2009.
