It’s been 12 months since Bellway took over the site on Ponton Road, where the developer is building over 500 new homes as part of the Nine Elms On The South Bank regeneration scheme.
Construction works on the three towers are quickly going skywards, and what was once the home of Christie’s Auctioneers warehouse is being transformed into hundreds of homes for Londoners. Once complete, The Residence will offer an enviable collection of 510 one, two, three and four bedroom apartments and penthouses across two ten storey, one 13 storey and one 19 storey towers.
The exciting new development will also include 2,475m² of commercial space, to bring new retail and lifestyle amenities to the area.
Ian Gorst, Managing Director of Bellway Homes’ Thames Gateway Division, commented:
“It’s great to be part of such an exciting regeneration project that will bring thousands of much-needed new homes to the capital. Watching The Residence take shape week-by-week is wonderful, and it’s clearly not gone unnoticed, as we’re already receiving interest in the development from keen buyers, so we don’t anticipate that the new apartments will be on sale for very long when we launch later this year.”
Designed by Maccreanor Lavington Architects in conjunction with GRID Inside, The Residence is a modern and sustainable development with architectural character that reflects the broad history of the area. GRID is also working on the interior architecture, designed to be in tune with the exterior of the buildings.
The apartments will be built to a top of the range specification, down to the last plug. The new buildings will also include a variety of measures to help energy efficiency, designed to Code for Sustainable Homes Level 4, including improved insulation, large windows for solar gain as well as support for community recycling. Undercroft car and cycle parking will be available to residents, including some dedicated to disabled drivers, and electric car charging points will be provided.
Situated close to Vauxhall, The Residence enjoys a fabulous location a stone’s throw from the River Thames, enabling residents to enjoy the best of the capital. A range of local amenities, including those being built at Battersea Power Station, will keep residents entertained, or it’s a short journey by public transport into Clapham or to Oxford Street.
Transport options are extensive, making the new homes ideal for commuters. Several local bus routes go into central London and south to Clapham and Wandsworth, and Vauxhall, a short walk away, offers underground services on the Victoria Line, as well as national rail services into London Waterloo, Clapham and Surrey and Hampshire. Work has already begun on the extension to the Northern Line, with two new stations close by for even swifter commutes.
