Battersea housing development wins planning consent

Palmerston Court, a mixed-use residential development within the Nine Elms Development in Wandsworth has been granted planning consent.

The scheme will consist of four new blocks ranging in height from 9 to 16 storeys. The proposals will provide: 162 residential units, including 21% affordable shared ownership homes, with a private gym and indoor pool for residents, new commercial spaces, cultural space, a replacement pub for the community and affordable office spaces for small or start-up businesses.

A sequence of public courtyards and gardens through the centre of the development opens up the site and reconnects it with Battersea Park Road and its surroundings.

Stephane Lambert, associate for FCBStudios said: "We are delighted that, with London & Argyll Group, we have achieved planning on this scheme. We have designed a group of buildings that, through their massing, materiality and landscape, will create physical and visual links between Battersea’s existing community and the new developments of Nine Elms. Palmerston Court will be high quality housing that complements the character of the area and contributes to the on-going regeneration of the Battersea area and its emerging skyline."
