Planning consent granted for landmark ‘One Nine Elms’ development in Vauxhall
Planning consent was granted last night by London Borough of Wandsworth for Green Property and CIT Group’s landmark ‘One Nine Elms’ development in Vauxhall. The consented scheme will see the existing 1970s Market Towers building demolished and replaced with two new towers of 58 and 43 storeys combining residential, office and retail uses.
Designed by architects Kohn Pederson Fox (KPF), the proposals will create 487 new home (including 51 affordable), 10,986m2 of office space and a 209 room 4* hotel. A significant part of the site will also been given over to a new public square accommodating shops, restaurants and cafes.
With the highest tower reaching 199.9m the buildings will create a focal point for the Vauxhall tall buildings cluster, forming a more coherent and attractive skyline.
George Kyriacou, Director CIT Group
“We are delighted by Wandsworth council’s decision to grant planning consent for One Nine Elms (ONE). The project team have worked closely with officers and members of the council and the neighbouring Borough of Lambeth for over a year to deliver proposals which will help realise some of the aspirations for the Vauxhall Nine Elms Battersea opportunity area (VNEB).
The ONE towers will be a striking addition to the Vauxhall tall buildings cluster and the London skyline delivering a significant amount of high quality new residential and commercial space to the area.“
Mike Tapp, Director Green Property said:
“Our proposals have been designed around the concept of an urban oasis, creating public space within an environment that feels inviting and communal. Located at the centre of the emerging Vauxhall cluster, we are seeking to build an iconic building which will provide a focal point for Vauxhall. It would provide a hub for the pedestrian routes through the area, and a gateway into the VNEB opportunity area through the linear park.
Wandsworth’s decision is another welcome endorsement of the collective plans for the area which will see this incredibly central riverside area of London transformed over the coming decade.
