A McLaren Property and Citygrove joint venture has been given planning permission for a 50 storey mixed use ‘Jenga Tower’ development in the Nine Elms area of London by Lambeth Council.

 

The New Bondway project, dubbed the ‘Jenga Tower’ due to its appearance, will involve the construction of two buildings housing around 450 new apartments, office space and retail units at ground floor level. The north building will be 170m tall and the south building will rise to 82m. These are to be linked by a glazed horizontal office element bridging the two buildings and intersecting the main tower.

 

It is anticipated the development will have an end value of £350M. Construction works could get underway in 2015 which would mean a completion date in 2018.

Also included as part of the 650,000 sq ft scheme will be outdoor open space in the form of a balcony or winter gardens and landscaped roof gardens and terraces for residents, in addition to an indoor swimming pool, a gym, and a multipurpose indoor hall.

 

A spokesman for the joint venture – McGrove Properties said: “We welcome Lambeth Council’s decision. The project team has worked closely with officers and members of the council over the past year to deliver proposals as part of the aspirations for the Vauxhall Nine Elms Battersea Opportunity Area. We look forward to progressing the scheme.”

 

The scheme has been designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates, with E C Harris project managing, WSP acting as structural consultant and MTT on board as services engineer.

 

John Gatley, Managing Director McLaren Property said: “New Bondway is a significant project for McLaren, bringing together our expertise as a developer with our construction business. The Bondway site is the last key development site in the Vauxhall tall buildings cluster and offers us an opportunity to deliver a world class building combining high quality residential and office space.”
