ITV has submitted its plans for the redevelopment of its South Bank site to Lambeth Council.

The plans will see the existing building turned into a 300,000 square foot office as well as 104-metre high residential tower that will include up to 213 homes and be up to 31 storeys high. It will also include studios for ITV's daytime programmes including Good Morning Britain and This Morning.

The new development has been designed by Hopkins Architects and includes a public square and new pedestrian routes - see picture for an artist's impression of the new site.

"The South Bank is London's vibrant creative and cultural quarter, which ITV has been proud to be a part of for more than 45 years," said ITV executive chairman Sir Peter Bazalgette. 

"I'm thrilled that we are set to build a fantastic new headquarters on our existing site, which will be our home for many decades to come. ITV thanks everyone who has taken time to share feedback which helped to shape the proposals that have now been submitted to Lambeth Council.”

ITV has submitted its planning application to Lambeth Council and hopes to start construction in 2019.
