Developer Barratt Homes has submitted detailed plans to Wandsworth Council in London for the proposed redevelopment of a vacant site on the southern bank of the river Thames into a residential-led development with 135 homes.

The new 28-storey building will comprise a rotated series of plectrum-shaped floors and floor-to-ceiling glass behind continuous balconies on the above-ground levels. It is also proposed to have a combined heat and power plant powering its operation.

Barratt acquired the site in May and appointed Patel Taylor Architects to design the scheme following a two month design competition. The design and access statement submitted with the planning application said that the proposals would create “a visually distinctive building that will become a positive addition to the Wandsworth skyline.”
