New Plans To Redevelop Fulham Wharf
Barratt Homes join forces with L&Q to build 463 new riverside apartments
Residents in Fulham will soon be seeing a new development taking shape on the North Bank.
Housebuilder Barratt London confirmed in an announcement last week that it is to join forces with L&Q and start work on the 8.5 acre site, located on the site of the Sainsbury’s supermarket.
The plot, which has planning permission for 463 riverside apartments and a new Sainsbury’s is said to have a gross development value of £420m.
The site has been bought on an unconditional basis with planning permission attached. In addition to the supermarket and housing, it will include restaurants, cafes and bars, a crèche, a gym, landscaped gardens, a riverside walk and the use of a jetty to create an ecological area for riverside wildlife.
The development will be delivered in two phases, with phase one comprising the construction of the new 9,395m2 supermarket for Sainsbury’s together with 267 residential units. The residential blocks wrap around the new supermarket as well as extending above the building and range from 2-17 storeys. Phase two comprises the demolition of the existing superstore and the construction of 196 units.
Alastair Baird, Regional Managing Director of Barratt London said: “We are delighted to have secured this high profile project on the west London water front. Barratt has a strong track record of delivering complex London schemes including Dalston Junction and Canada Water and this gave us a strong competitive advantage. Our London portfolio is expanding fast – we now have over 3,000 units under construction across the Capital in 17 boroughs providing homes ranging from £120,000 to £3.5m.”
The new development comes at a busy time for the housebuilder, who are also currently working on 21 sites across London, including Maple Quays at Canada Water, Queensland Road, Arsenal and the Court House in Westminster.
The Fulham development has been designed by Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands and construction is scheduled to start this month.
