The history

After a saga lasting nearly five years, in 2013 Boris Johnson granted planning permission for the construction of a 41-storey tower on the site of Eileen House in Newington Causeway, Elephant & Castle.

Because of a well-orchestrated campaign mounted by the adjacent Ministry of Sound nightclub, the mixed-use scheme by Oakmayne has become one of the most controversial in recent years.

Nearly 50,000 people signed a petition objecting to the plans on the grounds that the construction of new homes so close to the nightclub would put the world-famous venue's 24-hour licence in jeopardy because of the potential for noise complaints.

The proposals include 329 new homes as well as shops, offices and public realm in a scheme designed by local architects Allies and Morrison.


The explore

Not really much to tell here, we decided we were going to “climb” it and went for it.

Now when I say climb, we climbed over a fence and then walked the steps to the top.

Fuuuuucccckkkkk I nearly died 800 odd steps for fuck sake!!!!

41 floors and then the roof access. Christ alive!

I did consider making a YouTube video but there’s nothing to like about a 42 year old sweating and panting as he “climbs” steps lol

I’m old and carrying a little too much weight these days but fuck it was worth it. Although I’m not sure the next few days of sore legs was lol
