The project with a design and build value of £35m includes a 60,000 sq ft university technical college constructed in memory of the late Sir Simon Milton, London’s former Deputy Mayor for Planning and Policy.
This will sit alongside 47 homes to be purchased by Redrow London.
Architect Sheppard Robson desined the L-shape brick-clad UTC building which will provide space for 550 pupils aged between 14-18 year olds, housing a facility with a specialism in engineering sponsored by the University of Westminster and Network Rail.
Set next to this to the north is the 10-storey residential block, with the triangular plan of the latter creating a strong angular form facing Ebury Bridge.
Dan Burr, partner at Sheppard Robson, said: “Weaving together an unusual mix of a college and residential development was made even more challenging given the small footprint of the site.”
