£250m London riverside housing scheme approved
Developers Londonewcastle and Royal London Asset Management have gained planning for almost 250 homes in a riverside scheme in west London.
The 2.5 acre site close to the famous Hurlingham Park and Harbour Club is one of the last remaining large, centrally located riverside regeneration sites along the river.
The proposed 500,000 sq ft development next to Wandsworth Bridge will comprise 242 apartments in blocks ranging up to 12 storeys, set around a central landscaped garden, along with 35,000 sq ft of retail and leisure space.
Under present plans the job will be built in four phases, with initial site demolition starting early next year, with construction starting around 2015/2016.
David Barnett, CEO of Londonewcastle said: “This is a significant scheme and gives us the opportunity to create a new destination riverside address which will feature a spectacular elevated resident’s garden at its centre and improved public spaces and retail amenities along the revitalised riverside walk.”
The scheme is designed by award-winning architect Hopkins with WSP acting as main consultant and Waterman as M&E consultant.
