St George Wharf
The 93,000-square-metre (1,000,000 sq ft) mixed-use development is located between the Vauxhall Cross road junction and river, and is near Vauxhall station. The River Effra, one of the Thames' many underground tributaries, empties into the main river close-by. This development should not be confused with the smaller St George's Wharf which is in Shad Thames, London SE1, close to Tower Bridge.
Construction of St George Wharf was completed in phases, with blocks opening between 2007-2010. St George Wharf Tower was the final block to complete, opening in 2012. The development comprises over 1,400 apartments, as well as offices, retail units and restaurants. It was designed by the architecture practice Broadway Malyan. It has twice won the Architects' Journal's 'Worst building in the world' award.
