The new build seven storey building (including basement) overlooking Rush Common comprises a total of 74 new homes across three blocks; 44 private and 30 affordable, ranging from 1, 2 and 3 bedroom units. Commercial and retail space are introduced at ground and basement levels, including a new purpose built archive facility for the London Borough of Lambeth Archives.
The mixed-tenure homes are spread across three residential blocks named Palladium Court, Regal Court and the Darcus Howe Apartments, complimented with a pocket park to the rear.
A redevelopment of the former Council offices on Brixton Hill as the final phase of the Muse Development and Lambeth Council’s ‘‘Your New Town Hall” project to transform civic facilities and buildings in central Brixton.
A development rooted with connections to Brixton’s heroic history, the newly built Lambeth Archives was launched with the unveiling of a memorial stone and reading room in Olive Morris’ name, a Jamaican-born, British-based community leader and campaigner in the feminist, black nationalist, and squatters’ rights campaigns of the 1970s. Broadcaster and writer, Darcus Howe is commemorated with the naming of the Darcus Howe apartments which house 21 affordable apartments.
