Elephant & Castle Shopping CentreThe Elephant and Castle Shopping Centre is an iconic eyesore but even its 1960s heritage can't save it now: the shopping centre is for the chop, its demolished scheduled for 2012. In fact, the whole area is currently undergoing major redevelopment and by 2014 the site will be unrecognisable with a new Civic Square and shopping centre. Redevelopment has already begun on the Heygate Estate area. When it first opened on April the 3rd 1965 the £2.5 million project was intended to move shoppers away from noisy and dangerous traffic circling one of London's busiest roundabouts. A bronze statue of an elephant carrying a castle on its back - taken from a public house on the site - was unveiled at the launch. The three-store shopping arcade, dominated by an 11-storey office block - Hannibal House - was part of city-wide post-war development in the sixties which saw properties destroyed by enemy bombing in World War II replaced by controversial concrete towers and building blocks.
