Lend Lease 200 London homes plans approved

Lend Lease has received planning approval to build more than 200 new homes at two sites in Battersea, South London. The scheme brings Lend Lease’s tally of planned homes with approval in Central London to more than 700 so far this year.

Cobalt Place on Surrey Lane will comprise 104 homes and will be arranged across two buildings of five and six storeys respectively.

The second development, Victoria Drive, will provide 110 new homes comprising 55 houses and 55 apartments.

Richard Cook, Lend Lease’s head of residential, said: “Our aim is to become one of the leading residential developers in the capital and we shall be looking to partner with landowners in both the public and private sectors to bring forward more new homes for Londoners in the next few years.”

In addition to the new homes, Lend Lease will also build new school facilities for the local Saint John Bosco College, as well as community facilities. Lend Lease began work on its other major residential site in Central London, Elephant & Castle, earlier this year.

The £1.5bn regeneration will deliver 3,000 news homes and more than 100,000 sq ft of retail and leisure space over the next 10 years.

Construction has started on One The Elephant, a landmark 37-storey tower featuring 284 new homes, and Trafalgar Place, a development on the site of the former Heygate Estate which will house 235 units.

WSP joins Renzo Piano on Sellar’s ‘Shardlets’ towers

Quote:
Shard developer Sellar brings WSP on board for two further Renzo Piano-designed towers in London Bridge Quarter

Engineer WSP has been drafted in by the Shard developer Sellar to work with architect Renzo Piano on designs for two further, smaller towers in the London Bridge Quarter.

Building understands WSP was appointed last month, following the appointment of Piano earlier in the summer. Piano and WSP previously worked on the design of both the Shard and the Place, which stand adjacent.

The towers will house flats and be built on the site of Fielden House, by the Shard and the Place, which currently houses ground floor bars with offices above, including a Sellar office. Sellar and a Qatari consortium bought the site earlier this year.

Sellar had previously developed plans for three smaller towers on the site, called “the Shardettes”, designed by architect Herzog and de Meuron, which comprised 370 homes, a hotel, shops and a cinema. The current scheme is now being dubbed “the Shardlets”.

All parties declined to comment.

Brilliant This should be interesting the site had a small footprint, cant wait to see more towers go up.

With the London Bridge Quarter development more or less complete it should catalyse further developments in the area hopefully including a few more skyscrapers and other tall buildings as long as the height restriction in the area don't come into operation.

The 30 Marsh Wall proposal looks terrific, love the base - mid 20th century modern revamped for the 21st.

Wow that is bland. Most of the buildings going are awful, however, two of them are Victorian, one of which is very ornate.

Yes the lovely 19-21 Billiter Street is being preserved, but unfortunately I'm wrong about the other building on the NW corner of Fenchurch Street and Fenchurch Buildings. The renders here are contradictory. The first shows the building demolished. The second shows it still there. Unfortunately I'm sure the first one is more accurate, as it shows that corner in much closer detail.

If it wasn't for the high-rise part this would be a nice project.

Have you guys seen the design? It's elegant, classy and not a ridiculous shape.

Not everything can be unique. This type of design is what made American skylines so attractive in the first place and to see it have a modern twist is brilliant.

It may only be 170m but it certainly has a big city feel to it. Will look great with the rest around it.
