The area is going through a period of huge upheaval as the Elephant Park scheme delivers a £1.5 billion regeneration project.
Popping up all around Elephant and Castle are signs like this. The area is going through its biggest regeneration since the Second World War.
The area has been in a gradual state of decline and graffiti adorns the side of local shops.
Graffiti appears on many walls in the area.
Walkways and underpasses are fenced off. Clothes from nearby market stalls hang on fences.
Currently Elephant and Castle Shopping centre sits in the middle of the area. The building looks tired and is stained with paint. The council are planning to demolish the building, as part of the Elephant Park regeneration scheme.
Within the shopping centre lies a food court and historic a marketplace. Many people will lose their jobs here as a result of the demolition plans.
Cranes now dominate the skyline as more and more luxury flats are set to be built. Local people are worried the development will price them out of the area.
New and old buildings stand side by side. On the left stands the Strata Tower with upmarket penthouses emblematic of the affluence that developers are planning for the area. On the right stands a block of flats.
Bidding has already begun on the flats being built.
