Grimshaw granted planning permission for Nine Elms development
Posted on: 23/03/2016

TfL have announced that they have been given planning permission for Grimshaw’s Nine Elms Over Site Development (OSD), as granted by Lambeth Council Planning Committee. The TfL-commissioned project, which was designed in collaboration with Mott MacDonald, also received landscape design by John McAslan and Partners.

Three of the proposed key buildings will be residential and built over Nine Elms Underground Station, with the fourth key building comprising commercial office and retail space. Grimshaw’s design also proposes 332 residential units with 161 one bedroom, 155 two bedroom, 14 three bedroom and 2 four bedroom apartments available for a range of income scales.

On top of the station box there will be a shared landscaped amenity area accessible to all residential occupiers on the development, which will help establish the Nine Elms Station area as a quality residential, office, and transport hub. In turn, this will hopefully contribute to developing the character of the Vauxhall Nine Elms Battersea Opportunity Area.

Grimshaw Partner Declan McCafferty, said of the development;

“It’s great that Lambeth have given their support for what will be a fantastic new place to live and work in the borough. The scheme will form a benchmark for the delivery of high-quality, high-density residential development above transport infrastructure, in line with the aspirations of the London Plan.”

Construction will begin in 2020, when the new Nine Elms Tube station opens, and is expected for completion in 2022.
