Four firms are believed to have been shortlisted to build the £700M One Nine Elms development on the South Bank in central London by property developer Wanda One (UK).

 

Bouygues, Carillion, Mace and Skanska are all understood to be in the running to construct the mixed use luxury hotel and residential twin tower scheme.

 

A spokesperson for Wanda One, the UK subsidiary of Chinese conglomerate Dalian Wanda Group, had “no comment,” when asked about press reports concerning the shortlist.

 

The development has already obtained full planning consent and the project is expected to begin on site in the first quarter of 2015.

 

The 200m and 160m tall buildings will contain up to 491 homes, offices and a new public square with shops, restaurants, bars and cafes. A five star hotel with 187 rooms will also be constructed – the first luxury hotel opened by a Chinese firm overseas.

 

52 affordable homes will be provided as part of the project as well as a skybridge connecting the two main buildings.

 

New footpaths will run through the development, providing pedestrian links between the Vauxhall interchange, the Thames Path and the Nine Elms Linear Park. Three car club parking bays are included in the scheme along with 109 parking spaces and secure storage for 653 bikes. A Barclays Cycle Hire Docking Station will also be provided on the site.

 

The project team currently includes KPF as architects, SLW as project managers and Gleeds as cost consultants.
