Sky Gardens in Vauxhall, a development by Frasers Property (UK) Ltd, is now 35 per cent build complete and is entering its penultimate phase of development.
Situated at the gateway of Nine Elms, the Sky Gardens scheme consists of a 36-storey tower facing Wandsworth Road and an eight-storey mixed use building on Wyvil Road. There are a total of 239 homes, comprising of a mix of one, two, three and four bedroom apartments. Over a third of the scheme is affordable and all private apartments have been allocated.
Designed by award-winning architects Careyjones Chapmantolcher with interiors by YOO Design, the tower has been built to the twelfth floor and the mixed use building has been topped out. MACE is the lead contractor on the project. In the final phase of development, the tower is scheduled to reach the 20th floor by January 2017, with final build completion scheduled for April 2017.
The development is based around the concept of sky gardens, which provides residents in both buildings with ‘floating’ green spaces. Gillespies, the team behind 20 Fenchurch Street’s Sky Gardens, have designed the gardens for all year round usage, with temperature and humidity controlled to ensure maximum enjoyment.
Simon Lear,CEO Developments of Frasers Property (UK) Ltd commented:
“Sky Gardens in Vauxhall is one of the first sites to be developed in the Nine Elms regeneration area. There is a real energy in this part of town and the team is delighted with the progress made.”
“All the private sale apartments are already forward sold so commercially the project is already a major success. The Tower, once complete, will provide residents with two sky gardens overlooking Westminster and Chelsea, a 24-hour concierge service and a state of the art communal gym overlooking the communal garden. Completion is set for April 2017 and we look forward to welcoming new residents.”
