12-20 Wyvil Road – Planning consent granted
MNP are working with Stiff and Trevillion Architects, G+T, Hurley Palmer Flatt and Second London Wall for Alchemi Group on a new 0.35 hectare mixed use site in Vauxhall. The site comprises of 3 buildings – a 36 storey residential tower, a 5 storey office block and an 8 storey apartment building. The site will offer 2967m2 of retail area, 1164m2 of office space, 19875 m2 of luxury residential apartments and 1813m2 of affordable residential apartments.
The structures all sit over a large basement for plant rooms and car parking with additional double basements for further plant space. The structure will be formed using slim, post-tensioned concrete slabs and concrete columns with a secant piled basement. The tower will be clad in glazed emerald green and ivory terracotta panels with amenities including a swimming pool, residents lounges and beautiful roof top gardens designed by Camlins. The project sits adjacent to the Waterloo to Reading viaduct and MNP have undertaken full civil and structural design including negotiation with Network and Rail and primary stakeholders. The buildings sit on the fringe of the Nine Elms area within the Vauxhall regeneration zone.
Project Director, Stuart Pledge says ‘the design team have taken an existing consent and remodelled the whole site to add over 62% to the private net sales whilst delivering much needed affordable accommodation in Lambeth. The design by S&T has dramatically increased the appeal of the building over the heavily glazed former design. Once again Alchemi had great vision to get a new planning consent that increased the size, beauty and value of the development. MNP now have 3 UK buildings in design that are over 25 storey’s confirming the rightful place and ability for SME’s to work in this high rise arena once dominated by the multi-national consultancies. MNP are on their 9th project with Alchemi following the successful completion of 55 Victoria Street and we cannot wait to break ground at the end of the year with this one.’
