The Academy is delighted to announce that Roger Madelin CBE, Head of Canada Water Development at British Land, is confirmed to speak at Congress.
Roger will share his unique perspective on the challenges and opportunities for the future of place-making based on 30 years’ experience as a forward-thinking developer.
Roger joined British Land at the start of this year to lead the development of its 46-acre Canada Water site. The Canada Water Masterplan will bring forward a truly mixed-use scheme creating a new, major town centre for Canada Water, including new retail, restaurants, offices and homes alongside culture, leisure, and potential higher education uses set in a network of streets and open spaces including a new 3.5 acre park.
The site is made up of the SE16 Printworks (site of the Daily Mail’s former printworks, Surrey Quays Shopping Centre and Surrey Quays Leisure Park.
As Joint Chief Executive of Argent from 1997-2012, Roger was instrumental in the redevelopment of King’s Cross – a complex scheme widely recognised as a success in terms of good place-making. He was also responsible for leading Argent’s developments in Thames Valley, Manchester, the City of London, as well as AoU Great Place Award Finalist Brindley Place in Birmingham.
Roger has been the Chair of The Government Advisory Panel on Mixed Use Development, he is a Director of London First and member of President’s Committee, he is an Honorary Fellow RIBA and Board Member of RIBA Trust. He was awarded a CBE ‘For Services to Sustainable Development’.
