Today's new development is brought to you by the owners, Green Property, and imaginatively titled "One Nine Elms" on account of it being placed on the site of the current 22-storey Market Towers at 1, Nine Elms Lane. The building will be a re-development as it's not currently an empty site, but the leaflet below indicates that the office tower has become "outdated", and I think most would agree that it is a bit dingy:
I cannot mask my excitement about another tower, but sadly, there aren't really any published details on the development as yet. All they say is that they hope to be a gateway to the new linear park, which is similar, I think to something Vauxhall Square developers claimed, what with their proposed twin towers appearing to form a mouth at the entrance to the linear park.
All we know is that Green Property hope their proposals will create an "urban oasis" which will deliver new homes, jobs and local amenities. Since 30-60 South Lambeth Road already suggested the swimming pool (in what is already likely to be an interesting battle), and Vauxhall Island site proposing the cinema (although the developers their have suddenly gone quiet), One Nine Elms will have to come up with some even more interesting amenities. Perhaps a bowling alley! Ha! We'll find out soon, since Green Property intend to submit a planning application to Wandsworth "later this year", which doesn't leave a lot of time to consult.
Anyhow, the dates/times as follows:
Thursday 15th September, 4pm - 7pm
Saturday 17th September, 10am - 2pm
Venue will be Ground Floor, Market Towers, 1 Nine Elms Lane, London, SW8 5NQ
Once the consultation has taken place, they'll have a website http://www.onenineelms.co.uk/ which you'll be able to visit in case you can't make it, along with the usual crew, to scrutinise shiny posters and point at miniature plastic models of Vauxhall.
