Joint venture developer SGN Mitheridge has submitted hybrid plans for the site, which is one of the last undeveloped sites in Wandsworth town centre
The mixed-tenure scheme is to be developed with four main buildings ranging from 10-30 floors and will cost around £290m to build over six years.
Masterplanner shedkm has designed the plans with a team that includes MAX Architects, Carmody Groarke, BD Landscape Architects, Atelier Ten and Whitby Wood Engineers.
The gas holder’s inflating steel structure that dominated this area for over 60 years has been removed.
The 45m deep, 67m diameter circular concrete lined foundation of the old gas holder will be retained to use embodied carbon and improve sustainability of the scheme, which will be built around the underground structure.
The project also creates a new riverside park, with 200m of the River Wandle, formerly inaccessible, opened up for the first time.
