Nine 5-storey residential blocks built by Peabody in 1936, along with two lodge buildings will be demolished to make way for 527 homes, around half for private sale.
New buildings will range from four to 12 storeys, designed with high performance building envelopes, energy efficient lighting, acoustic louvres, over 13,000 sq ft of photovoltaic panels and an on-site district heating system and CHP unit.
The Peabody development is designed to deliver a 33% reduction of carbon emissions over the 2010 Building Regulations and achieve Code for Sustainable Homes Level 4.
A new community hub will include a café, club room, crèche, learning and function rooms, some commercial space and 136 car parking spaces and 687 cycle parking spaces.
Peabody’s project leader, Richard Stanway-Williams, said: “These plans will help us realise our ‘21st Century Peabody vision, which is to integrate developments into the wider community.
“This is best expressed in the creatively designed open spaces including a square, and amenities such as a community centre. I am especially pleased with the quality of the architecture and landscaping.”
Planning consultant Phil Villars, managing director of Indigo Planning, said: “These plans will offer Peabody’s residents a higher standard of living in larger and more sustainable homes, making more efficient use of a site that already benefits from being very close to a major transport hub and the centre of Clapham Junction.”
Farrer Huxley Associates is the landscape architect for the scheme. The sustainability consultant is Max Fordham and transport advice is provided by Capita Symonds.
