McLaren plans 50-storey London resi tower

Aaron Morby 10 years ago

Joint developers McLaren Property and Citygrove have submitted plans for a 50-storey tower at a site in Vauxhall in London.

The mixed-use scheme, known as New Bondway, has been designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates and will provide 450 flats, offices and shops.

Plans lodged with the Borough of Lambeth propose a main tower of private flats rising to almost 170m, while a smaller 23-storey linked building will rise to 82m.

This smaller building element will contain mostly affordable housing, topped with office space and a large roofing garden terrace.

The proposed building will also contain an indoor swimming pool, a gym and ranks as the most ambitious scheme proposed to date by McLaren Construction’s property arm.

The scheme is taller than a previous 150m high proposal from  another developer for the site, known as Vauxhall Bondway Tower, which was turned down over three years ago.

The new joint development team argue the latest proposal forms a key part of a cluster of planned high-rise buildings around the existing St George tower on the south bank of the Thames within the Nine Elms development area.

Present towers approved or in for planning include the Dalian Wanda towers, the tallest of which will rise to 200m or 60 storeys and another to 40 stories. Another neighbouring twin-tower scheme, known as Vauxhall Square, will both buildings rise to 168m.

The Bondway site is currently used for self-storage warehousing and offices. E C Harris is project managing, with WSP acting as structural consultant and MTT on board as services engineer.

Demolition and construction works are anticipated to take around 55 months to complete. Subject to planning consent, construction work should start in 2015.
