LONDON | City Tower One Nine Elms Vauxhall | 200m | 656ft | 58 fl | App

Catching Up With One Nine Elms

Published on 26-10-2011

The area around Vauxhall has the promise of being an emerging district of skyscrapers, something that two newly proposed towers at One Nine Elms look like adding to.

Replacing the Market Towers, an 88 metre tall office building completed in 1975, the new plans see a 200 metre tall 58-storey skyscraper called City Tower and a shorter tower to the west called River Tower of 160 metres and 47-storeys. This height makes it lofty enough to act as the pinnacle for a growing cluster of towers in Vauxhall.

450 apartments will fill the bulk of the towers, with affordable residential units located at the bottom part of the towers, and private residential apartments on the more valuable floors above. Boasting strong vertical lines on their facades, this not only adds a sense of soar, but also helps provide solar shading for the insides of the towers.

River Tower will also have a podium which will contain a 180-room four star hotel, whilst the other half of the podium will have 10,000 square metres of office space. This podium will have two setbacks that will allow the creation of a number of terraces.

Shoppers will be able to enjoy ground floor retail, along with a new landscaped public square between the two towers with al-fresco dining. It could also include a new market, and an outdoor performance space. In creating such a space, a new pedestrian route will be opened to Vauxhall Park that will be open 24/7.

Perhaps most impressively will be a two-floor connection between the towers about half way up the shorter. This will be for a new venue, the Nine Elms Club creating an impressive members only space suspended above the void.

The project is being developed by Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates for developers Green Property and the CIT Group, and still at the early stages of the public consultation process.

Property prices in a south west London suburb are predicted to rise higher than anywhere else in the capital.

Nine Elms is expected to outperform other neighbourhoods as a result of huge regeneration projects such as the extension of the London Underground's Northern Line and the opening of the new US embassy in 2017.

Estate agent Knight Frank believes residential prices in Nine Elms could hit ú1,800 per sq ft, equating to a whopping 140 per cent increase in its UK property value.

Across the capital, the firm says major infrastructure improvements could see new-build property prices go up by over 30 per cent by 2016.

Its report said: "[Nine Elms] is set to undergo a complete change of identity as regeneration takes place. Tideway Wharf and Battersea Power station will boast hundreds of apartments, and Nine Elms Parkside, which is yet to be granted planning permission, would create an additional 2,000 residential units.

"Key to this area's success will be the extension of the Northern Line. Under current plans, two extra stops are planned at Nine Elms and Battersea. If this goes ahead, the area would have direct links to Covent Garden, Soho and Fitzrovia, as well as South London," it added.

If completed, they will stand at a stone's throw from St. George's Wharf like less than 100 yards distance, in its immediate vicinity: that'll create a nice cluster of skyscrapers that will be visible from far away. Hopefully they will be given the go ahead...

I hope so as well, St. George's Wharf is good but shouldn't stand alone there.

It is not approved yet, so it might take some time before we see them rise.

A planning application has been submitted to Wandsworth Council for the redevelopment of the Market Towers office building in Nine Elms.

The proposal is for a mixed use scheme including more than 400 hundred homes, a hotel and a new public square with shops, restaurants and cafÚs.

Called 'One Nine Elms', the scheme is a joint venture by CIT and Green Properties. The architect is Kohn Pederson Fox.'One Nine Elms' by CIT and Green Properties

The site is located in the east of Nine Elms - central London's biggest regeneration opportunity.

The area has begun to transform with work now underway on St George's Vauxhall Tower scheme and St James Group's Riverlight development.

Enabling works are also underway on the site of the new US Embassy which is expected to open in 2017.

Council leader Ravi Govindia said:

"Nine Elms is London's leading development hotspot. The transformation is now underway and a new residential and business district will soon take shape.

"More than 20 sites are now gearing up for redevelopment and work has begun on some of the most exciting schemes. In all, 16,000 homes will be built here alongside enough new business and cultural space to support 25,000 new jobs.

"The new Nine Elms will have two new Tube stations and more green open space than any other part of Central London's South Bank. It will be a terrific place to live and work."

The One Nine Elms application is now being assessed by the authority's planning department. Once validated, the plans will be made available on the council's website and a public consultation will gauge views from local residents and businesses.

More information on the scheme is available at www.onenineelms.co.uk

About Nine Elms

Property value is expected to rise faster in Nine Elms than in any other part of London according to property agency Knight Frank. The company has forecast growth of 140 per cent by 2016.

London's first 'linear park' will run through the entire length of the distinct.

A new and improved riverside footpath will run between Chelsea Bridge and Vauxhall.

A new footbridge will cross the Thames linking Nine Elms to neighbouring Westminster.

Two new Northern Line stations will connect Nine Elms to the London Underground network and capacity increased at Vauxhall Station.

The London plan anticipates up to 16,000 new homes and 25,000 new jobs will be created as Nine Elms changes from a light industrial zone to a mixed residential and business district.

The area includes Battersea Power Station which has planning permission for more than 4,000 new homes and a new town centre development.

Other major schemes include:

Marco Polo House

Parkside

Embassy Gardens

The Garden at New Covent Garden Market

One Nine Elms

Sainsbury's Nine Elms

Vauxhall Island

Vauxhall Square

Sky Gardens

Hampton House

30-60 South Lambeth Road

Black Prince Road

Battersea Gas Holders
