Leake Street Arches, Waterloo

24 million people each year visit the South Bank and the demand for new restaurant and bar space in the area is especially high.

To complement the regeneration taking place in Lambeth, LCR is converting the Leake Street Arches beneath Waterloo Station into 25,000 sq ft of space, predominantly for cafes, bars and restaurants.

London’s largest legal street art tunnel, Leake Street links Lower Marsh with the South Bank and has made its name as a democratic cultural venue for street art.

The work we are doing with LCR at Leake Street is incredibly exciting. LCR’s creative vision and considerate approach to this sensitive location has enabled us to establish a culture-led street association and arts programme for the area, which will preserve its creative ethos and standing as a democratic venue for street art.

Public realm improvements will also feature as part of the development, including a new pedestrian link to Westminster Bridge Road and improved lighting, security and surfaces. The arches are being delivered in tandem with the retail development at Waterloo International Terminal; they are due to open to the public in summer 2017.
